People get doubted all the time, the thing to do is prove the doubters wrong, just like New England Patriots, wide receiver, Julian Edelman did. Being told that he was too small to play professional football by coaches and scouting reporters, motivated him more than ever. Another person who doubted him was his college professor, who recently wrote him a letter apologizing. The professor claimed that she made a “flippant comment” after hearing Julian’s life goal of making it to the NFL and she has felt guilty ever sense. She wrote, “"You had made some comment about 'going to the league,' and I said something about setting realistic goals, about how few people successfully enter the ranks of the professional athlete, blah, blah, blah," the professor wrote. "I don't think it fazed you, frankly, but whenever I think back on it, I feel terrible, not because you proved me wrong, but because I stupidly voiced an uneducated opinion that implied distain for your passion for the game.", after posting a picture of this letter to his twitter account, followed a caption “set your goals high. Do whatever it takes to achieve them. #motivation.”
