when he was 12 years old, paul rabil’s (@paulrabil
) neighbor handed him a lacrosse stick. “i remember playing in my first game and taking my first shot,” says the american lacrosse player, who grew up in maryland and now plays professionally for new york and team usa. “i wasn’t any good, and the ball traveled in the opposite direction of where i was aiming. i remember feeling upset, but also invigorated by the challenge to improve.”
now 32, “a year younger than lebron james,” he notes, paul’s passion never left. “hard work is defined by effort and endurance. the latter is the most difficult,” he says. “to be able to stay motivated, put in hours of training, make daily sacrifices and truly be passionate about what you do is rare. if you have it, go all in, and be prepared to commit years of your life to the journey.”
