Do you really know your LIMITS?
I used to play Table Tennis. Love it. I still play, but now just for fun.
I watched the Olympics… Table Tennis was spectacular, but kind of foreseeable.The Chinese won everything. Impressed everybody. Took the gold and went home to train, to win more gold.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the fuss around the Olympics, I love the beautiful stories of motivation and determination we see in this awesome competition. But let me share you a secret – if you like the mood the Olympics puts you in, you really need to watch the Paralympics.
A 26 seconds video I saw yesterday had the power to motivate me more then any 2 billion copy soled best seller on self development.
Here it is:
After watching you may say “what a determination! what a power to keep fighting” and you will look at these people with respect and admiration, and somehow thinking that if you were in their shoes you would not be able to do that.
But here I will contradict you. It’s not that you don’t have the power to do great things. It’s not that you don’t have the will and determination to fight until the end.
You know what your problem is? And mine also… You have OPTIONS.
You have the option to be normal. Normal is not good. You know what normal is in my opinion? Normal is mediocre.
Those people you saw in the video above don’t have the option to be normal. They can only be amazing or invisible.
Now think – what if normal is not an option anymore? What would you do? Would you fight until the end to be amazing?
Here is another amazing video about the Paralympics – enjoy it and please let me know what you think in the comments section below!
