Today’s Quote is from Jesse Owens

The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself–the invisible battles inside all of us–that’s where it’s at. –Jesse Owens
This is a great quote. It not only goes to the heart of this man’s heart, but also to his character. Do you know who Jesse Owens is? He has a right to talk. He not only talked the talk, but he walked the walk. . . or ran the run as it was.
Jessie Owens was one of the greatest athletes ever. At a time of extreme racism and bigotry in the world. At a time when Adolf Hitler believed his “Aryan Race” was the dominant race and planned to demonstrate it at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Jesse Owens proved him and others wrong. He went to Berlin and WON 4 Gold Medals at the Olympics, more than any other Olympian at that time. The greatest feat in any Olympiad. He had already won many races and set many world records including 4 with 45 minutes.
Returning from the Olympics he lead a stellar life, setting positive examples for youth around the world. But as he said, it’s the invisible battles within us that are the hardest to win, to fight. We all have our own struggles that we face in life. Whether these are physical, mental, philosophical, etc., these battles that no one else can see are still battles that we must win. These are the battles that count.
You can win these battles. You can triumph and succeed. You can win!
