On stroll through audio section of my library I found a copy of autobiography of Lance Armstrong, called "It's Not About The Bike - My Journey Back to Life". If you're not familiar with Lance's story let me tell you it's an incredible example of courage and a willingness to prevail over odds. I simply can't do justice to what an impact listening to it had on me.
You see, Lance is a cyclist who at peak of his career was diagnosed with testicular cancer. The story did not end there. Not by a long shot! Lance Armstrong went on to not only beat his battle with cancer, but to become 3-time winner of Tour de France (1999- 2001). It's told from a very real stand point, he points out in beginning that it's not your traditional rose colored story of overcoming odds. It's a wonderful heartfelt example of courage and hope and willingness to keep going no matter what might come our way.
Such examples of courage, hope, and just about anything else you care to learn about are all around us, many of which are available in places such as your area library. Take an active role in your own personal growth and start taking advantage of such resources.
As follow-up to story of Lance Armstrong I've just started listening to "Still Me" an autobiography of Christopher Reeve. The simple fact is that mentors are all around us. They can come in many forms, from people we interact with, to recounted stories in books and tapes... Your in success, Josh Hinds
