Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls era, the slogan "Be Like Mike" was everywhere and right.
Jordan was the biggest player ever wearing a pair of basketball shoes. He took away his god's athletic ability and coupled it with the mere resolve to create a ring dynasty in Chicago. With Windy City, Bulls won eight league titles in eight years.
Now that he has retired from the game and the Jordan era has passed, I think we need a new and better slogan for everyone in the new millennium.
My suggestion: "I want to be like Jason" like Jason Becker. For those who do not know, Becker is an incredibly talented guitarist and musician who diagnosed ALS more than a decade ago.
Amyotrophic Side Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord neurons. The motor neurons extend from the brain to the spinal cord, from the spinal cord to the muscles through the body.
Progressive degeneration of motor neurons in ALS led to death. When the motor's neurons die, the brain's ability to initiate and regulate the muscle movement is lost. With gradual voluntary muscle activity, patients at a later stage of the disease can be completely paralyzed. However, through the vast majority of people, their minds are not affected.
All these diseases are cruel and brutal, one destroys the body, but the mind is intact.
After losing his ability to play guitar, Becker moved to the keyboard and when he could not play two hands he played one. Eventually, all movements have disappeared.
Despite the obstacles, Becker recorded the album "Perspective". He played entirely with Macintosh guest speakers. The album, released in 1996, was added to the main label allocation in 2001, with the total revenue of the ALS Therapeutic Development Foundation.
After more than 10 years of initial diagnosis, Becker is still making music. You use the nail art to write your notebook notes with a computer, and with some movement on your jaw, write the mouse button to the composition. I'm not a musician, but in order to write complex pieces of music, to make notes in the heads is really amazing!
Becker is an inspiration for all of us. Doctors said they would live for about three years and go far beyond. His music became much more complex and more diverse. Instead of surviving, it blooms.
I'm sure Jason wants things to be different. I'm sure you want to walk again and lead a normal, healthy life, but it does not deal with the nature of fate. This land was created to create music and inspire people to a new level of awareness and potential.
Most of the individuals pass over and fall into this illness, waiting for death, not Jason Becker. He took the blow with mere determination, perseverance, perseverance, and positive faith in itself. He looked at the ALS and said, "You will not defeat me and I will be stronger about it."
The most difficult and bold thing Becker did is not the ALS head but the limitations of his own mind. Becker's body is broken, but his soul is stronger than a hundred people. His spirit and unbreakable rise above the clouds in the rare air that is called satisfaction, power, and spiritual tranquility. This is a place where there were very few or were seen. Becker's home.
Life is a lesson for us all, a curriculum that we know and need to do with the time given to us. Instead of whining and complaining about the difficult days we've experienced or the way life does not go as we want, let's look at the Becker plan. He taught us that everything, and I do everything, in trouble can overcome determination, faith and perseverance and replace the positive and rising power.
Becker, along with others like him, is a living proof that the mind can do everything and everything.
Michael Jordan was a great athlete who was far away on the basketball court. She is a wonderful athletic model. But when everything was said and done, I would rather be "Jason instead."
