I was watching the Olympics and saw the story of Oscar Pistorius and I was totally blow away by the opposition that he faced during his ascent to the Olympic games. Since Oscar is a double amputee you know he faced obstacles that told him he would never compete on that level. I wonder what his journey was like? Do you think it was easy? Or what about Gabby Douglas, the American Gymnast that appeared to come out of know where?
These individuals did not just come out of know where, they put in years and years of sacrifice, sweat and absolutely tears. They fought for every ounce of sweat that dropped and they deserved every single bit of that. During my journey I have four points that have helped me throughout to stay sane and focused.
- Live a God centered life
- Don’t be pushed by problems, instead be led by dreams.
- Know its easy to make a dollar, but better to make a difference
- Hold fast to dreams and don’t let them die.
Imagine if anyone of those athletes competing in the Olympics would have let their dream die? What would have happened?
