Steph Curry on What It’s like to Be Underrated

“One of the biggest things I’ve really come to understand about myself over the last 17 years: The way that underrated might start off as just some feeling the world imposes on you. But if you figure out how to harness it? It can become a feeling that you impose on the world.”

Steph Curry is quite a basketball player, but his story may be even more impressive than his on-court success.

Whether you care about basketball or not, you should take a couple minutes to read his explanation of what it’s like to be underrated including the powerful advice his mother gave him when he almost quit basketball as a kid.

Her advice?

“NO ONE gets to write your story but you. Not some scouts. Not some tournament. Not these other kids, who might do this better or that better. And not EVER your last name. None of those people, and none of those things, gets to be the author of your story. Just you.”
