Success

WGarth Callaghan

I look around at this group and I see a lot of different success stories this morning and you should congratulate yourselves. 

My name is Garth Callaghan. I have been diagnosed with cancer four times in the last three years. I've had two wins, a tie, and a stalemate. My doctors have looked me in the eye and told me that I am going to die from this. So far, I have beaten the odds. 

There are some people that will tell you that success is a goal, that it's a destination, that success means avoiding failure.  

I am here to tell you:

THEY 
ARE
WRONG

Success is a choice. 

Success means choosing to get your tired butt up out of bed, getting dressed, and joining your fellow runners and walkers when it's 19 degrees outside. Success is choosing to train instead of staying inside with your pajamas on. Success is choosing to train instead of sipping that warm coffee at your kitchen table. 

I have here a Napkin Note that I've put together for my daughter, Emma. I am saving it for a time when she really needs to read this.

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. 

I've lost almost 300 games. 

26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.

I've failed over and over again in my life. 

And that is why I succeed."    - Michael Jordan 

 

Have a fantastic run!!
