It isn’t always about winning.

Unless you’re Piers Morgan…

And this isn’t the first time a runner was helped over the finish line. In 1992, Derek Redmond busted his hamstring mid-way and his dad came on to help him over the finish line.

Someone told me about this. I hope I’m not too late here, I’m traveling, but I wanted to chime in.

I always say don’t be afraid of failure, because how far can you really fall? You found out – to the ground. It’s right there. Now you know it isn’t anything that should scare you.

You should be proud that you weren’t afraid – not embarrassed that you failed. You could have made excuses not to walk into the door, but you didn’t. You knew it would be hard, and it would be uncomfortable, and it might be awkward – and you did it anyway. That’s courage.

I’m proud of you.

The last guy I rooted for broke a world record in the deadlift. You have more in common with him than you think.

First, he started out lifting just the bar, too (when you look at him, he may have been 3 months old at that point). Second, imagine his courage. He walked up to that bar in front of a big audience and television cameras, knowing that not only had he never lifted that much before – NO ONE on earth had – and it was highly likely he would completely fail. You may not think about it this way, but you showed that courage, on a smaller level.

Finally, I’m rooting for you, too. You took the first step and you fell, but at least you fell in the right direction, so get back up and take the next step. Keep moving forward.

“You Can’t”

If anyone tells you “You can’t achieve your goal”, just remember that there is only one person who can tell you what you can and can’t do — and that person is yourself.

With the right incentive and motivation, a human can do many wonderful things. I’ve seen this video many times, and always come back to it whenever I feel a dip in motivation. If he can do it, so can I.
