Determined to Win The Overcoming Spirit of Jean DriscollVer medals 1992 1996 Jean has inspired both men and women athletes and non athletes and those with and without physical disabilities She's been featured on Good Morning America ABC Nightline and the Today Show and twice in USA Today A documentary highlighting Jean's life story Against the Wind has aired on over 400 PBS stations nationwide In addit In less than two weeks I finished reading Jean Driscoll's book Determined to Win The Overcoming Spirit of Jean Driscoll The book is a page turner I Each chapter has its own story And each story offers learning worthy to share the world I admire Jean Driscoll's perseverance and dedication to achieve her dreams and be a success Her overcoming spirit has led her to the journey she belongs Jean was born with Spina Bifida She can’t walk like normal kids do She was restricted to certain activities that kids of her age are enjoying She has been to debacles and discouragement brought by the disability She even gave up pursuing her dreams and living her life as she was engulfed by the thought of being inutile However despite the deterrent and restrictions of living the life she ever wanted Jean has gained everything she deserved through dedication determination and belief to God At April 2000 Jean Driscoll won a record breaking the 8th time Boston Marathon Winner and was proclaimed as the ueen of the HillThis book struck me Jean having Spina Bifida achieved so much in life So who I am to give up? Who I am to complain about everything?Determination is the key Winning is the goal If we put our focus to the goal with the determination to succeed it will happen As Jean said “I believe the biggest limitations we have are the ones we place on ourselves or the ones we allow others to place on us” Never set limitations instead explore possibilities that would show the way to achieving success Our biggest nemesis is ourselves our thoughts People would already label and constrain our victory Yet we must not live within it because we can do The only way to discover our capabilities is to try experiment fail learn and pursue Keep focus on the goal avoid people who bring you down it not a loss and get surrounded by the ones that push you up Like Jean Driscoll let us all be determined to win and become a success in our uniue stories
