LeBron Wants More Kids Striving Outside of Athletics Instead of Trying to Be Like Him

LeBron James

LeBron James is in the midst of trying to keep his team together and pick up the pieces that fell apart last month—after a dismissal stretch that saw them relinquish the #1 seed to the Boston Celtics.

While he focuses on that on the court, he took some time on Instagram recently to address an important topic: Rather than have kids follow his path in athletics, he wants more kids to strive in other needed areas to better this country.

“We don’t need more LeBron’s, we need more physical therapists, scientists, police officers, teachers, doctors, professors, physicists, computer engineers, etc!! I want every kid to know there is absolutely NO LIMIT to what you can be. Your dreams are there for you to EARN. The teacher/accountant/scientist/dr/etc is just as talented as any athlete, if not more. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how many incredible men & women I work with who have never seen the court but are just as vital to our success as I am. There’s no way my game is what it is without them. Open your heart & mind to the world around you. See the possible. Dream big. Then work your tail off and chase it. s/o to everyone involved in #weneedmore. #striveforgreatness #earnednotgiven”
