And speaking of motivational speakers, my Chinese tutor and I were discussing how it seems many Chinese people have a lack of self-confidence. Much of this conversation boiled down to recent historical and long-standing educational factors.
So how can create this self-confidence into a group people? Well, the best way is NOT to let a 5'9" (175cm) guy block your shot when you are a 7'6" (228.6cm) professional NBA player that is considered to be one of the best big men in basketball right now. Yikes!
