Ray Allen: Letter to My Younger Self

Ray Allen: Letter to My Younger Self

(The Players’ Tribune) In this very personal “Letter to My Younger Self,” NBA star Ray Allen, who has just announced his retirement, reflects on his biggest lessons learned. He writes that what makes champions are “the boring old habits that nobody sees” and “getting in your work every single day, when nobody is watching”. Being 41 years old today, he says that he is “completely at peace with himself” and encourages his younger self that “every day for the rest of your life, you’ll have to choose. Do you want to fit in, or do you want to embark on the lonely pursuit of greatness?” Go ahead, and read the whole letter, it’s worth your time.
