Champions are among us. They work at their craft with a quiet confidence and succeed after a lot of patience, dedication, and self-sacrifice. +
This is my son Danny. This weekend, he was part of a virtual Ultra-Marathon this weekend. In a field of over 2000 ultra-marathon runners, he placed in the Top 80. He participated in this race for over 23 hours and 32 minutes. He ran 100 miles, completing 24-4.16 mile loops in our neighborhood. +
This didn’t just happen. Danny trains for this each day, and he lives for this kind of challenge. He puts in the time, the work, the dedication and the resources to do this. +
Maybe running isn’t your thing. Maybe it is gardening, cooking, drawing, sewing, creating, entertaining, teaching, helping others or any number of activities. Whatever your thing is: do it with focused intensity. Write your own story of greatness; be your own hero. In times of crisis, we wait for a strong hero show up and to save the day. Look in the mirror: that strong hero is looking back at you. Become who you are meant to be!
