Powerful Inspiration


I weep EVERY time I watch this. Even if you’ve seen it a bunch of times – watch it again. Inspire others.  This is an inspirational video of Derek Redmond – who tore his hamstring during the 1992 Olympics. His father ran out to the stands to help him.  Watch this & be inspired.



Things don’t always work out the way you think they will. Derek Redmond was favored to medal in the Olympic 400 meter sprint. 1500 meters into the race, Derek fell to the ground with a torn hamstring. He kept on running in pain. A man broke through security to help him. It was his father. With tears streaming down Derek’s face, his Daddy helped him finish the race.

Shortly before the finish line, Derek’s father let him complete the race alone. He received a standing ovation from a crowd of over 65,000 people. Even though he was in agony, Derek finished the race.

I try to work hard and inspire others. I only hope that I’ve inspired my children as much as Derek’s father helped him. You may never know how what you do – will help others. You cannot fail when you never give up.

Find an inspirational quote that really appeals to you.   Write it on a piece of paper.  Once you’ve written it down, you should cut it out and put it somewhere where you’ll see it several times a day.  I put things on my bathroom mirror.  But, others place it  on their refrigerators.  Only by reading it several times a day and by believing it will it become a part of your belief system.

But, don’t just read it ..…  Feel it! If you put it in context with the personal issues you are dealing with right now it will give you a new and more positive perspective on your current situation.
