Never Give Up


Look closely at the photo, you can see Jim Thorpe is  wearing different socks and shoes. This wasn’t a fashion statement. It was the 1912 Olympics, and Jim, an American Indian from Oklahoma,  represented the U.S. in track and field.

On the morning of his competitions, his shoes were stolen. Luckily, Jim ended up finding two shoes in a garbage can. The pair he’s wearing in the photo. Notice  one of the shoes was too big, so he wore an extra sock.

Wearing these shoes, Jim won two gold medals that day. This is a perfect reminder that you don’t have to resign to the excuses that have held you back.

So what if life hasn’t been fair? What are you going to do about it today? Whatever you woke up with this morning; stolen shoes, ill health, failed relationships, don’t let it stop you from running your race.

You can experience more in life if you’ll get over the excuses and get on with living. You can have reasons or you can have results and you can’t have both. #Don’tQuit
