A Lesson from the Olympics: Never Give Up

rio olympics

As the world prepares for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, we anticipate many memorable moments. We look back on past records broken and heroic stories, wondering what we will soon witness.

One historic story that brings me to tears is that of Derek Redmond in the 1992 Olympics. I won’t spoil it for you. Watch the video.

When you’re done, I urge you to think about your own life. What life challenge are you facing right now where you need a reminder to keep walking forward? What are you trying to do by yourself that can only be accomplished with the support of others?

Sounds like the recovery journey, doesn’t it?

Regardless of our personal struggles and setbacks, may we all find the support we need to keep moving forward toward our personal finish line. Together, we can make it….if we never give up.
