New Week Inspiration ❤️☀ . . . . This is a perfect reminder

This is Jim Thorpe… all 6’1″ 203 pounds of him.. Look closely at the photo, you can see that
he’s wearing different socks and shoes. This wasn’t a fashion statement. It was the 1912
Olympics, and Jim, an American Indian from Oklahoma represented the U.S. in track and
field. On the morning of his competitions, his shoes were stolen. Luckily, Jim ended up
finding two shoes in a garbage can. That’s the pair that he’s wearing in the photo. But one of
the shoes was too big, so he had to wear an extra sock. Wearing these shoes, Jim won two
gold medals that day. This is a perfect reminder that you don’t have to resign to the excuses
that have held you back. So what if life hasn’t been fair? What are you going to do about it
today? Whatever you woke up with this morning; stolen shoes, ill health, failed relationships,
failed business, don’t let it stop you from running your race. You can experience more in life
if you’ll get over the excuses and get on with living. You can have reasons or you can have
results…but you can’t have both.
