Leadership, starters, & Finishers!

I watched this video repeated times today. It’s inspiring, amazing, and outstanding. It teaches us great lessons about finishing what we start and not to never give up before the finish line in whatever endeavor we set ourselves into.

It was the 1992 Olympic 400-meter semifinal: Derek Redmond collapsed about half way through the race with an injury. He got up, determined to finish despite the pain. His father came out of the stands and onto the track to help his son. With his father’s help, Redmond made it to the finish line.

That’s why I like the Life Leadership community. It provides inspired information through peer pressure. Thanks to my friend Fritz-Gerald who posted this video on our community post this morning, I had food for thought.

Are you a starter or a finisher?

Let me know. Watch this video.

God bless,
