The picture above is Jim Thorpe. As you can see, he is wearing different socks and shoes. This was not fashion. It was the 1912 Olympics, and Jim, an American Indian from Oklahoma represented the US in the track and field. On the morning of his competition, his shoes were stolen. Determined, Jim ended up finding two shoes in a garbage Can. That's the pair he's wearing in the photo. But one of the shoes was too big. So he had to wear an extra socks. Despite wearing these shoes, Jim won two Gold medals that day. This is a reminder that you don't have to resign to the excuses,frustrations that have held you back. So, what if life hasn't been fair? Whatever is bothering you, Stolen shoes, ill- health, failed relationships, joblessness, business failure etc. Mention that problem... Don't let it stop you from running your race. You will succeed. You are a winner and you must win. Don't give up...Have a great week ahead
