Motivation Monday: Julian Newman dishes on what fuels his fire

It’s the voice in your head that that tells you to push past seemingly impossible fatigue on the gridiron. It’s the thought that keeps your motor running at a supreme level on the hardwood.

It’s dreaming of getting your parents that new house. It’s retiring your grandmother. It’s simply wanting never to be picked last again.

Motivating factors in sports range from the simple to the simply inconceivable, but they’re all necessary to the development of elite talent.

Every Monday we’ll catch up with elite athletes and get them to dish on the single most powerful motivating factor that’s gotten them to where they are now.

Today we caught up with Downey Christian (Orlando, Fla.) point guard Julian Newman.

The greatest motivating factor that’s gotten me to where I am today is… “Not wanting to waste my gifts and knowing what I can accomplish if I work hard. It’s been my dream to play in the NBA and I know a lot of odds are stacked against me, but that makes me go harder. I want to beat the odds.”

Here are the fruits of Julian Newman’s motivation.
