The other day, a friend asked me what I thought it meant to be successful. A few minutes had passed before I realized that I had no idea. Over the years, my idea of success has changed so drastically that I find it difficult to articulate exactly what it is. Most people, on the other hand, don’t have this problem. When presented with the question of “What does success mean to you?” they are more than prepared to read off their laundry list of qualifications…. College degree, married with children, comfortable income bracket. etc. However, by these standards, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, and Bill Gates have all fallen short.
Whatever your personal definition of success may be, I think we all can agree that there are just some people in this world who are undeniably living out ”The Dream”. We must also note that if there is one thing these “dreamers” have in common, it is their willingness to FAIL. Whether you’re a “dreamer”, or a working mother of 3 just trying to make it through the work week, we’ve compiled a list of 5 YouTube videos to help you stay inspired wherever your life’s journey may be leading you.
1. Derek Redmond 1996 Olympic
Watching Redmond endure to the end of this race is more memorable than the person who actually crossed the finish line first.”The race is not given to the swift, neither to the strong, but to those who endure to the end.”
