Lance Armstrong on Perseverance
Lance Armstrong's life offers a poignant example for all. Even after being diagnosed at age 25 with stage three testicular cancer in 1995, Armstrong persevered and won seven straight Tour de France races. Rather than being content for personal triumphs against disease, he formed the Lance Armstrong Foundation to support people affected with cancer.
The yellow Livestrong bracelets that people sported were more than just a fashion statement but a creed to how to live in the world--Unity is strength. Knowledge is power. Attitude is everything.
Some may tut tut Armstrong's messy personal life or dismiss his cycling accomplishments amid the miasma of doping allegations. But Armstrong's commitment to Livestrong is undeniable.
