You must cross the finish line but you don’t have to do it alone. (video)

A great quality of a champion is that they commit to crossing the finish line, no matter what. Indeed, that’s what “commitment” means… “no matter what”.

But our ego says that we have to do life alone. It’s makes up stories that somehow we get extra points for doing things alone. Another great quality of true champions is that they can receive help and build teams. A common place this starts is the way we separated from our father which leads to stories that can keep us trapped in doing life alone.

As men we often make up that we have to go it alone, especially shutting out the help of other men. The ego will make up that we are weak if we let other men help us, but that is just the ego working to make us weak.

Check out this video of one of the greatest moments in Olympic history with Derek Redmond.

    Thanks for sending this to me. I am going through a tough time now and my father is my only parent alive now. He lives thousands of miles away and is undergoing an eye surgery today. It made me cry to see this video. I think he’ll always support me no matter where he is or what he’s going through. Thank you!

    Thanks Bruno! And we can remember that we can include other men in our life to help get us to the finish line. Champions build teams. Only ego says we should do every thing alone.
