I came across this video on Facebook. It is about a ballerina who, at a very young age, really wanted to dance. She faced a lot of challenges such as being overweight, jeers from “experienced” ballet dancers and of course envy of others. In the end, though, she was determined to show herself and her skills to the world. She succeeded. The lesson she left us is this:
The true test of a champion lies not on whether he can triumph, but whether he can overcome the obstacles.
In life, we face a lot of obstacles to success. The only one stopping us from getting to the top is ourselves. When we push forward and overcome obstacles, we get rid of that one thing standing in our way.
