You Can – Keep Moving Forward

Here are a couple more videos posted on by Arpit Jacob, 9 Videos To Inspire And Cheer You Up. The theme of these videos, keep moving forward.

Team Hoyt

Team Hoyt is a father / son racing team comprised of Dick Hoyt, the father, and Rick Hoyt the son. They compete in triathlons, marathons and many other athletic competitions that the typical person wouldn’t undertake. What makes these achievements all the more amazing is the fact that Rick can’t walk or talk.

From the Team Hoyt website:

For the past twenty five years or more Dick, who is 65, has pushed and pulled his son across the country and over hundreds of finish lines. When Dick runs, Rick is in a wheelchair that Dick is pushing. When Dick cycles, Rick is in the seat-pod from his wheelchair, attached to the front of the bike. When Dick swims, Rick is in a small but heavy, firmly stabilized boat being pulled by Dick.

This is a story about a father’s love for his son, and his unwillingness to let ‘disability’ affect the life he and his family are going to lead. They live by the motto “You Can.”

Rocky Balboa

In all honesty, this is probably one of the best speeches of the movie. Rocky is talking to his estranged son, who blames Rocky for all his problems. Shame on you Peter Petrelli from Heroes.

It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward… how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.

As I mentioned in my post Don’t Forget to Get Back Up, I truly believe, you gotta keep moving forward, you gotta keep getting back up. I believe one of the main attributes of a winner, is the refusal to quit. You only lose when you quit trying. Sure your progress may be slow, it may take months, years or decades to reach your goal, but you haven’t failed until you stop trying.

Keep getting back up, keep moving forward.

Thanks to Team Hoyt for setting an example the rest of us can strive towards, and thanks again to Arpit for posting great content.
