Live Inspired Vlog #161: They May Have Taken My Fingers…

A Lesson on Overcoming Challenges

“Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall.” This quote from Oliver Goldsmith has been on my mind a lot after visiting a young man in the hospital about a month and a half ago.

Like me, this young boy’s fingers had been amputated after being burned, and he was struggling mightily in his new life. But with a little help, guidance, and encouragement, he is finding ways to overcome challenges and get back to doing some of the things he loves.

It may take some time, some struggle, and some adjustment, but today’s #LiveInspired vlog reminds us that in order to succeed, we just have to be willing to get up one more time than we fall.

Today is your day. Live Inspired.
