This is one of my favourite picture from The Reebok Spartan Race. People often ask me, why do you race? My question to you why do you not race? The question “Why do you Race?” is a great metaphor of “Why do you live?”
I live to inspire people to embrace the adversity of life so that they can grow living life with fulfilment. That is why I Race. Let’s look at the two Spartans crossing the finish line right before the fire. One with a complete set of body, 2 arms and 2 legs. The other Spartan had 2 arms, 1 leg and crutches. Physically, they are different. However, both of them has the fire of a Spartan to beat all the life adversity.
The question is who has the most fire? At first glance, probably the one with crutches may have the most fire. However, I believe both of them has a different story to tell. One of them could be physically challenged which we can observe. One of them could be an emotional challenge which we cannot observe. At the end of the day, both of them has their own setback. But they cross the finish line! That is when it really counts! Here is the secret, it is not about the setback. It is how you respond to your setback. All it takes is action! They make the decision to take action to break their setback. Instead of complaining about it and do nothing at all. They decide to take the positive attitude to matter how life hit them! That is the fire each of us needs to have!
