Turning rejection and failure into a road to success
Hello Loves ,
How is everyone’s holiday season going? Mine has been going wonderful
Well the name of today’s blog is turning your rejections /failures into a road of success. Yesterday I went to my daughters track meet in NYC and it was not a good meet for her. She was a little upset with the outcome and she felt a strong sense of failure. So I looked her square in the eye and said your not going to win every race and the race is not given to the swifts and the fastest its given to the one who endures to the end. I gave here the example of Wilma Rudolph she lost every race until she got into the high school years. Wilma Rudolph's life is a story of achieving against the odds. Her first accomplishments were to stay alive and get well! In high school, she became a basketball star first, who set state records for scoring and led her team to a state championship. Then she became a track star, going to her first Olympic Games.
She won a bronze medal in the 4x4 relay.
On September 7th, 1960, in Rome, Wilma became the first American woman to win 3 gold medals in the Olympics. She won the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, and ran the anchor on the 400-meter relay team.
This achievement led her to become one of the most celebrated female athletes of all time. In addition, her celebrity caused gender barriers to be broken in previously all-male track and field events.
Loves we have to realize that it is going to take work to get to where we are going.It may be physical, mental, and spiritual. Just know the pay off is great if you just stick in there. Greatness is coming
