Monday Motivation, Holiday edition

on September 3, 2012

Even though today is a holiday (Labor Day in the US), I am still in need of a little motivation.  (You may have thought these Motivational Mondays were for the blog world.  Nope – they are more for me than they are you)!  I’ve enjoyed this 3-day weekend a little too much (pizza, beer, cupcakes – enough said).  Time for a kale shake an inspirational quote.

Every single day, I get a few emails from Runner’s World Magazine.  Yes, it’s annoying.  But I’ve never unsubscribed because one of these daily emails includes a Quote of the Day, the ‘Runner’s World Daily Kick in the Butt’.  Today’s quote is:

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

RW has credited Oscar Pistorius with saying this, but as I did a little more research, it turns out that this is actually a quote by Scott Hamilton, an Olympic figure skater, who is a cancer survivor.  He founded the Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative to raise money for cancer research.

Certainly, Oscar could have said that.  His story is nothing short of amazing.  You can check out his official website HERE.  This is a quote that Oscar actually did say, “You are not disabled by the disabilities you have, you are able by the abilities you have.”

So do not focus on your negatives or what you (think you) can’t do.  Focus on the positives.  Be grateful for what you have in life.  Yes, there are always going to be others who have more.  There will always be someone who is better.  But you can still be the best YOU that you can be.
