Here’s the Mid-Week Pep Talk You Desperately Need, from Kid President

Just in time for the mid-week doldrums, the pint-sized, well-dressed internet sensation Kid President has the right words to leave you feeling pumped up and ready to conquer that stack of assignments ahead of you.

The wise 9-year-old, whose real name is Robbie, invites us to reflect on Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken,” Journey (“Don’t stop believing…unless your dream is stupid.”), and Michael Jordan. “What if Michael Jordan had quit?” he asks. In addition to an amazing career in professional basketball, he never would have gone on to star in Space Jam! Kid President wants you to push yourself. “What will be your Space Jam?”

It’s true, we have work to do. So, are you going to cry about it or are you going to dance about it?
