I watched this story on ESPN (watch the video, go ahead… it’s amazing) and was moved. “Moved” really doesn’t cover it though. Matt’s story penetrated to my core and helped me ask myself what am I allowing to get in my way.
When I was real with myself about the things that I let stop me, I got some perspective. It’s time to do more with what I have. If this 11-year-old with cerebral palsy can run a 400 meter dash (in front of the whole school), then I can risk a little rejection when talking with a potential client (to name just one example…. ).
What’s stopping you? What’s your 400 meter dash… ?
