you can call him King Steve

I think my friend AGH should consider starting his own blog, as this is the second awesome thing he has sent me in as many days.

the definition of swagger

Six-year-old b-girl Terra was the youngest competitor in the recent Chelles Battle Pro, and handily took on her opponents to win the “best dancer in the Baby Battle” title.

I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that this girl is not going to have self-confidence problems later in life.

“let me see what I can do”

There are two things I love about this video.

The first is the idea of Rejection Therapy — I don’t know much about the actual game itself, but I like the intent of helping people become more comfortable with failure, and more confident in the face of rejection.

The second thing I love is the fact that this guy makes what he thinks is a ridiculous, doomed-to-fail request… and he has his wish granted. It’s an even more valuable lesson in going after what you want, even in the face of probable rejection. Even if the odds aren’t on your side — you never know when you’re going to catch a break.
