Where do you find inspiration?

Lance Armstrong had to battle multiple cancers, and won. Lionel Messi, arguably today’s top footballer, had growth hormone deficiency at young age. Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot grew up in abject poverty without much to eat. He was abandoned by his parents as a child. Haile Gebrselassie was born in a family of 10. His family also didn’t have much. He had to run to school, and back, everyday–10 km each way.

They worked hard and became great athletes on world stage.

Life always challenges you. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. Overcome adversity to find out what you are made of.

Read these great pieces for more on Cheruiyot, Gebrselassie, Messi, and Armstrong.
