How dedicated are you to yoyoing? How much do you yoyo a day? How much of that time do you spend practicing? Have you ever done something big to help the yoyo community?
The first question can be answered by answering the ones following it.
I find myself to be yoyoing a ton each day (probably around 3 to 4 hours if I can; if possible, even more), and about half of that time is trying to learn or create something new. As far as doing something big for the yoyo community, not really. However, I am known to organize contests on these forums and I also run the Fantasy Yoyo League.
What about all of you?
Just thought of this one: How many of you have seen Soul Surfer?
If you do not know this movie (or at least the story), you should really check out the book/movie/story. It is very interesting.
The story is about a young girl named Bethany Hamilton, who is a professional surfer. One day, she was out surfing and lost her arm in a shark attack. But, she fought through her injury and was back out surfing a month or two later. She spent hours a day in the water practicing for the upcoming Regional contest that she was sure she would miss. However, she places 2nd (or maybe 3rd) in the Regional contest, and has been going strong ever since. The following year, she won Regionals.
This just shows how much dedication she had. It is amazing to think she even set foot in the water after the disaster. I know I wouldn’t have. But, she fought her fear, and continued doing what she loved.
So, really, how dedicated are you?
