When I was competing to bring an NBA franchise to Charlotte, North Carolina, no one gave our group a chance of succeeding. Every newspaper put our odds as dead last on the list of eleven cities vying for a team.
The story of how we won the bid is too long to share here. But I want to give you one simple takeaway from that experience. Beating the odds reinforced the lesson my Mom taught me since I was a little boy: Believe in God and believe in yourself and amazing things will happen.
It wasn’t just starting the Charlotte Hornets franchise; so many amazing things did happen for me before and since that event – including beating the odds on cancer.
It’s not surprise that my favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength” (NLT).
I believe amazing things can – and will – happen for you too. Something big is right around the corner for you! You just have to keep believing!
