Salt in His Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream

When basketball superstar Michael Jordan was a boy, he wasn't sure he'd ever be tall enough to excel at the game he loved. To cheer him up, his mother told him that if he put salt in his shoes it would help him grow. Every night she sprinkled salt in his shoes. But when the salt didn't seem to do the trick, Michael's father reminded him that being tall wasn't the only path to being an excellent basketball player --- hard work and giving his all were far more important. Hmmm. Guess they were both right!
