Stories of perseverance are inspiring. It's incredible to see how certain people can achieve amazing results in some of the most difficult circumstances. Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl writes about this in his book "Man's Search for Meaning." In this book, Frankl details his life as a Jewish prisoner during Nazi Germany and how he was able to overcome such a terrible life by finding something to live for.
Everyday, ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary results. I think this can be the most inspiring and inspirational part of my job. We don't have to measure ourselves by our fitness, health, the amount we earn, etc. Rather, it's about doing the best we have with the tools (intelligence, wisdom, resources, family, friends, jobs, opportunities) that God gives us.
