Inspirational Video From ESPN – Richie Parker, An Engineer For Hendrick Motorsports
Giving up is easy, not trying is easy, excuses are easy. Easy is NOT how championships are won. In his 9 years as an engineer at Hendrick Motorsports, Richie Parker, who was born without arms, has helped Jimmie Johnson win 5 Championships in a row.
I couldn’t help but think while I watched this video that I almost feel bad for anytime I have ever thought the deck was stacked against me, or that something, anything, was too hard to do. It becomes clear that all you really need is a true desire to make something happen and the ingenuity to overcome your obstacles.
It is also a reminder that our lives begin to take shape very early, and it is in face of the obstacles we overcome that our futures become clear.
So the next time you think you are ready to give up, think about this video and remember that anything, ANYTHING is possible.
