I get motivation lots of places. I heard this story on a news broadcast when it first happened and it’s one of those many illustrative events that I rest my mind on when I’m feeling personally weak and uninspired.
Most of us have challenges in life that nobody else really sees. We’re not in a stadium full of people who watch us overcome or who applaud us to the finish line. Nevertheless, it’s the personal strength and determination that I enjoy watching on display in this video. It reminds me to keep pushing. It reminds me that even if everybody else around me has already reached their goal, as long as I’m still putting one foot in front of the other, I’m in the game. It doesn’t matter how fast I’m going, as long as I’m still fighting.
