## I'm Possible MathA different way of calculating your odds

In any career path, there is a perception of a person's chances to succeed. Many times, these perceptions are built off calculated odds and statistics. While numbers and stats reflect truth and facts, I'm Possible Math defies those facts and shines light on a path to success that is not only possible, but exceptionally realistic. The game of basketball and the chances of a high school basketball player achieving their dream of playing college basketball, is a perfect example of the power that lies in I'm Possible Math!

## NCAA RESEARCHEstimated Probability of Competing in Men’s College Basketball

### % HS to NCAA Division II

The NCAA conducted the research and the numbers can't be denied. The numbers in themselves are factual. If there's 541,479 high school players and only 18,697 NCAA spots, then logic speaks to the 3.5% chances of finding success. And this is why so many players think they are playing the lottery and why so many parents are scared of what will happen when their son or daughter's dream is crushed by unrealistic expectations. But this research is flawed!

I'm Possible Training operates under a different way of thinking and our success rate is astronomical. Why? Because true research can't be conducted based on how many people participate. Odds can't be determined based on how many people live and breathe. There are more important factors that make up a person's true odds to find success in basketball and in life!

## Participation vs. Belief

Based on our experience, we believe that only 20% of those who participate in basketball, actually have the desire to play college basketball. Watch as the competitive pool decreases.

### The Rule of 20%

This is just common sense. You can't calculate the odds of becoming a doctor based on how many students there are in the classroom. It goes without saying, that only a select few even have the desire to become a doctor in the first place. And in the same manner, you can't calculate the odds of playing college basketball, without first understanding that only a couple players on most high school basketball teams even have the desire to continue playing basketball at the collegiate level. Based on our experience, we believe that 20% is a very safe estimate, which already brings the pool of players who want to play college down to approximately 108,000. Calculate those odds and a high school player who actually wants to play collegiate basketball has already increased their chances to a mark around 17%!!!

## players who do the neccesary work

Wanting something and doing something about it are two completely different things. From our experience, we estimate that only 20% of those who say they want to succeed, are actually doing the necessary work to find that success.
