In everything you do, from writing a paper, cooking dinner, or interviewing a potential employee, preparation is the first key to success. To write a paper, you have to have a topic and research materials. You can’t cook dinner without planning a meal and buying the food for that meal. Just as you can’t interview a potential employee without first recognizing the need for help and letting others know of that need. And, of course, in any sport you want to excel in, countless number of hours of training to hone that athletic talent.
But, what makes the difference when everything else is equal. Determination. Some call it will power, grit, resolve, etc. In this video, you see determination at its best. I’ve never seen a runner fall down in a race (relatively short distance), get up, and then go on to win the race.
Do you think it was determination or a bit of anger of being tripped?
