Attitude – she haz it
Eighth grader, Danielle Harbour, broke the record for the most back handsprings: 40 (prior record was 36).
I’ll do it at the next football game… just for fun.
Just for fun. No workup, no pressure, no prep, no nothing. Just confidence, just knowledge of herself that she already has the skills. No fear.
In the middle, at like 20, I was like… I started slowing down… and I was like “Oh my gosh, I have to keep going… I have to keep going!”
And then when I got to 39 I was like “Oh my gosh, I can’t do one more!” and then I was like “I gotta do one more! I gotta make 40!”
She didn’t know quit. She pushed through pain, because she knew greatness was on the other side. Oh sure, back handsprings don’t mean much in the grand scheme of the life and the world. But her attitude means everything.
