I have faced many challenges, obstacles, and difficulties in my life to get to where I wanted. It has not been easy, but I have worked true to my convictions for it to happen.
The past two years have been the hardest, because I have not been able to do what I love the most: play basketball. Certainly, I gave a purpose to that grave injury that took me off the court, which has allowed me to perform great things beyond basketball, contributing important initiatives to my country. Let’s see it as a great opportunity life gave me to contribute from a different perspective, from a different vision. And I did not waste it.
However, my goal has not changed. The time has come to achieve it.
Many don’t believe in me. They ask me every day: are you really going to play? Don’t you think it’s time for you to think about retiring?
The answer is no. I will not give up. That is not my thing. That is not me.
Despite how difficult the goal seems, the harder I have to work. I am focused and motivated to achieve it, there is nothing that distracts me. I have said it before: if it was easy, everyone would do it. I like challenges, and this, without a doubt, is one I will overcome.
I give a standing ovation to those who work hard every day and make the impossible possible. Therefore, starting this November, I would like to pay homage to Venezuelan characters of different areas with inspiring and motivating stories that will prove to us that adversities are in fact opportunities, through a movement we have called NOW, + THAN EVER, MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Every Sunday, I will share with you on my social networks a different story. Each of them motivates and inspires me to go on. I hope they will inspire you, too. Let’s be an echo of this movement that will be an example for all.
If I can do it, you can, too. Therefore, NOW, + THAN EVER, MAKE IT HAPPEN.
