There are times in life when survival is victory. You make up your mind every day just to keep going, and you count each new day as another win.
Some people have easy lives, safe lives, privileged lives. The successes of such people surprise no one and inspire no one. But the people who succeed despite hardship, misfortune, humiliation and discouragement — the survivors, who had to fight merely to keep up the courage to keep fighting — these are the great heroes, the inspirational champions whose victories give hope to the downhearted.
