Even if things don’t unfold the way you expected, don’t be disheartened or give up.
One who continues to advance will win in the end.
“The win was a surprise to everyone but Billy Mills, who for years had written ‘Gold medal, 10,000-meter run’ in his workout journal. The night before the race, he added, ‘God has given me the ability, the rest is up to me. Believe, believe, believe.
“’It’s the journey, not the destination, that empowers us. It’s the daily decisions we make in life, not just the talent we possess, that choreographs our destiny.’” – Excerpted from “Billy Mills: Wings of an Eagle,” by Peggy Shinn for http://www.teamusa.org.
