During so much of our struggle we spend inordinate amounts of time focused on what we think are our shortcomings or our lack.
As Tony Melendez so beautifully proves in this video, it’s not what you don’t have that counts. It’s how you use what you do have.
It is a well-known and well-demonstrated Universal Law that whatever you focus on expands. Focus on your lack and you get more of it. Focus on your abundance, and by the same law, you must get more of it.
Watch this video and guess which one Tony focuses on:
Just as the Beijing Olympics will provide us with a lot of inspirational moments we can use in our life, so too did the Olympic games of 40 years ago. John Akhwari was a marathon runner representing Tanzania at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. During the race he fell, badly cutting his knee and dislocating the joint. Rather than quitting, he got up from the fall, bandaged his leg and continued to run. He finished hours after the winner and last among the 74 competitors. Asked why he continued to run when there was no chance that he could win, he replied, “My country did not send me 5,000 miles to start the race. They sent me 5,000 miles to finish the race.”
Watch this video and then get up off the track and finish YOUR RACE!
