If you put your mind to it, you can do anything. That's what we're raised to believe and there just might be some truth to it.

This video, featuring a British man named Sam Priestley, playing table tennis just about every day over the course of a year has gone viral.

Priestley picked up a paddle and played almost on a daily basis. The results were noticeable.

Color us impressed. He clearly put in some work. We also say kudos to his roommate for letting a huge ping pong table stay in their apartment. That has the potential for trouble whenever someone wakes up to get a glass of water in the middle of the night.

Priestley didn't ultimately become a top 250 player in his country, but he certainly got better and showed he's no longer going to be a pushover when you show up to play him.
