The Greatest

The Greatest is all about perspective. Just when you think you are failing, when things seem to be going wrong a change of perspective shines a bright light of realization that you just might be succeeding in other ways.

It is a very simple concept but the key, of course was finding the right young actor to play the part. As you have seen, he is amazing. After countless takes throwing the ball up and missing—which is harder than you might think—he never lost his zeal. The last scene was as strong as the first. “Celebration” by Kool and The Gang fittingly takes us from despair at ‘strike three” to euphoria and inspires us to embrace the value of Optimism as we face similar situations each day. After all, you might just be The Greatest.

that boy never gave up and when he failed he didn't throw a fit and just looked on the bright side.
