Inspirational Video Of The Week #39: “Derek Redmond Olympic Race – NEVER GIVE UP”


What’s more important? That you end up in first place or to finish the race?

Most people would agree with finishing in first place. That’s the predominant thinking.

And there is nothing wrong with that… But in this case, the story of Derek will prove that statement wrong. It’s very moving and inspiring.

The story on this video will show us that it’s not all about finishing in first place but rather to finish and to NEVER GIVE UP!

Sometimes life will knock us down, and when that happens, we must be ready to use our will and determination to get back up and KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

Isn’t amazing? No matter how tough life is or the challenges life brings “NEVER GIVE UP” because you will surely succeed at the end like Derek did :D.

Derek may have lost a race but he finished with a standing ovation in the biggest platform of sports. The OLYMPICS!  He will always be remembered as a CHAMPION.

The bottom line is that it doesn’t matter how you finish, it doesn’t matter what place you end up with, it’s the tenacity, mental toughness, and desire to finish that brings you success, satisfaction and joy in life in ways that you will always be proud of.
