In My Opinion
Although Andre Johnson Magic Johnson’s Son did not inherit the basketball skills of Earvin “Magic” Johnson, he remained successful in his career just like his father.
Some children of famous athletes would pursue to become just like their parents. Some of them are pressured especially their parents had great achievements in sports. But Andre Johnson is different. He took his own path of life. He did not follow his father’s footsteps.
He did not want to become a famous basketball player just like his dad. But he pursued his own dreams in the business sector. Andre Johnson is now a successful man.
Not In the world of sports but in the world of business and economy. We should all remember that we should pursue what we want to be in the future and not pursue what others want us to be in the future.
We can be successful if we trust ourselves and if we have the will to follow our goals. Andre Johnson’s career is also tough. Or should I say much tougher than his father’s career.
He deals with people almost everyday while his father deals with his own skills and performance each game. But we should not compare both of their skills because they came from different worlds. World of business and world of basketball are different.
What makes them similar is the blood that is flowing in their veins.
Andre Johnson may not be seen in television just like his father playing almost every night, but he has his own way of fame and success in life.
