Finding Your Champion's Heart: A Bar Exam Preparation Inspirational Talk
The host of Celebration Bar Review, Jackson Mumey uses John Elway's illustrious football career as a metaphor for individuals preparing for the bar exam. Drawing parallels between Elway's initial failures to win big and subsequent triumphs, and the challenges faced by students during their bar exam prep, Mumey encourages students to believe in themselves and maintain resilience.
Labeling this resilient spirit the 'Heart of a Champion', he emphasizes the importance of refusing to give up, of learning from past mistakes, and of not letting past failures define the future.
Mumey’s message aims to inspire and motivate students, whether first-time takers or repeaters, to face their bar exams with a positive expectation of success.
