Sometimes just by seeing an image, you can get quick fire motivation especially when you know the story behind it. Thus we like to share with you an image of a person who can motivate you and make you believe that nothing is impossible. The reason why it will inspire you is the story behind it:
The person in the image is Terry Fox, who was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. An active teenager playing many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977. With the help of an artificial leg, Fox was walking three weeks after the amputation.
The night before his cancer surgery, Fox had been given an article about Dick Traum, the first amputee to complete the New York City Marathon. The article inspired him to trek across Canada to spread cancer awareness and raise money for it and that’s where famous ‘Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope” started.
He ran throughout Canada running 32 miles per day but did not give up. Even though blood was trickling down from his amputated leg. He got all the way to Thunder Bay, Ontario where he developed a deep respiratory problem. He did not give up. But he was rushed to a hospital because of deteriorating health. Where a reporter asked him,”Terry, what are you going to do now?” Terry Replied,” Are you going to finish my run?”
He died Short Time later. Ultimately Canadian’s raised 24 million for his fund. That’s why this image always affirms that nothing is impossible if you believe you can do it. Always make sure that you the greatest obstacle between you and success id self-doubt.
And always remember,
