Jimmy V - 3 Things

Jim’s 1993 ESPY Speech - YouTube

Jimmy Valvano died 28 years ago today (4/28). Two months before his death he gave one of the greatest speeches ever given. If you don’t listen to it, that’s fine but remember this:

“To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives.

Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day.

Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought.

And number three is you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.

But think about it. If you laugh, you think and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heckuva day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.”
