This is Jim Thorpe, a Native American from Oklahoma. He represented the US in the 1912 Olympics. Notice his socks and shoes. His shoes were stolen on the morning of his track and field competitions. He found these two shoes in a garbage can. He had to wear an extra sock on one foot because the shoe was too big.
Jim won two gold medals that day: the high jump and the 110 meter hurdles.
Excuses, we all have them.
Some of us get lost in them. Some of us ignore them.
Life isn’t fair. So what?
How will you deal with living today? Will you tell everyone about your excuses?
Or will you show yourself that no excuse can stop you from being the very best version of you?
