Why You Should Listen?
Working for Coach Joanne P. McCallie at Duke has taught Hernando Planells that life is about “Choice Not Chance.” To Coach Planells everything is a “Choice” is doesn’t happen by “Chance.” People justify when things don’t go their way saying, “It is not meant to be.” Coach Planells believes that too many of us are stopped by fear not going after what we truly want because we are afraid. People want to know the end of the story without reading the book. It is important to read the book, because that means you have to live life and take chance after chance to get what you want.
Coach Planells whole life has been about taking a chance on him. He had kids very young and he had a choice either to work in corporate America or bet on himself to go after what he felt called to do. It was a long and difficult journey. He was unemployed 18 times, fired 4 times, spent time on Craig’s List to find a job and sent over 1,000’s of emails to get people to take a chance on him. He kept chasing his dream until Coach McCallie gave him an opportunity to assist with the Duke Women’s Basketball Program.
