This is one of the most inspirational video I ever seen. This is a real life story happened in Olympic 1992 in Barcelona, Spain. The runner is called Derek Redmond from England who once hold the 400 meters world record. Basically I believe you can understand the whole video well. Some food for thought:
Will you do the same if you were Derek Redmond?
Is this you in real life?
In life, everyone will face difficulties, problems, failures, mistakes, thwarts to our success. Every successful person in his/her respective field will face difficult times and failures.
The key question is : How are you going to face them? Are you going to finish it strong, or give up halfway?
I hope you will be inspired after watching how Derek Redmond finished his race.
He can chose to just give up by limping away or sit down on the track when he tore his hamstring.
He can chose to give all kinds of reasons and excuses when he lost in the race
But he didn’t, instead he was so determined to finish his 400m race.
And the tear-jerking moment is when his father assisted him to finish the race and said “Son, we are going to finish this together”
Back to reality, are we determined to get to our success? Are we going to continue when problems, failures set in? Are we going to finish things strong?
I believe when you see this post, it will be the starting of 2013. In this new year, I am sure everyone will have his/her resolution, new things to accomplish. Sadly speaking, it is easy to set an aim but not easy to finish it. Ask yourself, are you determined to have a great 2013 year? If your answer is YES, If you are 100% committed to success, If you think you can be like Derek Redmond, well I wish you ALL THE BEST in 2013 and I will see you at the top !
