A True Heartwarming Story Of Amazing Human Achievement

By Jim Gillespie | November 3, 2011

Every once in awhile I come across a heartwarming story that I feel I have to pass along to you, and this is definitely one of those stories.

When I was in high school I played on the high school basketball team, and I was the captain of the team. But I’d trade all of our accomplishments together as one of the top-ranked teams in California, for playing alongside of a boy who accomplished what I’m about to show you in this video.

Jason McElwain is a special-ed student in Rochester, New York. He’s autistic, and he was the manager of his high school’s basketball team. During the team’s final game of the season the coach decided to have Jason suit-up and wear one of the team’s uniforms. The coach wanted Jason to feel more like he was fully a part of the team before the season ended, but with just four minutes to go in the game, the coach decided to go one step further, and he put Jason in the game.

Jason immediately began struggling, but then something quite miraculous happened, that can inspire us all…

In the November edition of my Commercial Broker Newsletter, I tell all of your clients and prospects how the formula for the Consumer Price Index has been changed, dramatically impacting rent increases. If the Index hadn’t been changed, today’s inflation rate would be more than 11%, instead of the low inflation rate that the Index is showing us today. If you’re not currently sending a monthly newsletter to all of your clients and prospects and keeping them informed on this kind of information, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to brand yourself in their minds as the top broker in your territory every month. If you’re interested in more information on how you can send this newsletter to your clients and prospects, click here.
