The Olympics and Life

Run Your Race pic.001When we watch the Olympics, we see dreams come through for hundreds of people. People across the world are achieving their dreams or people are watching others achieve
their dreams. At the Olympics, we see athletes who have been practicing for years upon years upon years. We see athletes who have won bronze medals, silver medals, and running to achieve the gold medal. Run Your Race with Resiliency, Attitude, Commitment, and Enthusiasm.

How different are the dreams of those athletes and the dreams that we have in our lives not being athletes?  One great writer wrote, the journey of 1000 miles starts with one single step. The athletes who we watch have been sacrificing their lives and their time for just one day only.

Their talents and your dreams are not just for a show but it is something that they believe in and want to achieve by all means necessary. The question is, what do they do or have done when the goal that they have been striving for is not achieve? Do they stop practicing? Do they stop believing?   Do they throw up your hands and say this is not for me?   We see the tears of joy among the participants. We also see tears of embarrassment. We see tears of some feeling like a failure.
