Weaknesses - The Ultimate Motivator?
“Having a weakness is not the same thing as an excuse, not doing anything about it, is! John Wooden said it best, ‘Don’t let what you can’t do keep you from doing what you can.'” Our challenge is two-fold: First, to honestly and accurately define our weaknesses. Then, second, to courageously seek out that one thing we can start to do, even this week, to begin the journey of turning that weakness into an emerging strength. In the inspiring and educational video clip below, Kevin Gaffney shares about his battle with Multiple Sclerosis, also known as “MS.” Instead of allowing the challenges that many face with this disease to bring him down, Kevin founded, TEAM CRASH, a bike team that rides annually to raise money to find a cure for MS. Over time, Kevin has turned his weakness into a strength, and in so doing, empowered himself and many others to ride into their illness head on. Kevin is quick to add, “I ride because I can.” And each of us, inspired by his actions, must consider, “How can our weakness motivate us?”
