We have all heard stories of amazing people who have overcome incredible odds in order to reach their goals. We read and hear about these people an are usually in awe. Many of us will become inspired enough to start taking action in order to change our lives while others will just see these stories as something that occurred because of luck. What many people don’t realize is that although these inspirational people have achieved a lot in their lives, they also had to go through many setbacks and challenges.
It’s easy to look hear stories like this and write it off as luck but if you look closely at what these people had to go through, you will come to the realization that for the most part, these people weren’t lucky, they just wanted their dream more than most people. One the the areas that we see these types of stories most often is in sports.
When we hear about Lance Armstrong overcoming cancer and going on the win 7 Tour de France title in a row or Michael Jordan failing to make the basketball team during his first year trying out but end up being one of the greatest basketball players of all time, what we don’t see is the hours of hard training they had to go through each and everyday. It’s easy to miss this fact. It almost seems that they just woke up one day and became champions sometimes.
We you start to realize that nothing great comes easy and accept the fact that it’s only when you desire something and work harder than anyone else that you will achieve your dreams, you will see that luck has very little to do with winning in life. So how do you become an inspiration person yourself? By committing to not give up on your dreams.
There are far too many stories of people failing to live the life they have always dreamed of.
By committing to becoming another example of an inspirational person, you can inspire those around you because when they see that someone they know can achieve their dreams, it will create a greater belief in themselves. Since they will see your hard work, they are less likely to write it off as luck.
We need more and more stories of inspirational people. We can never have too many of them. Do what you can to achieve your dreams because your story could very well change someone’s life.
