Book Review - The Race

Mac Anderson (Founder, Successories) gives the Introduction of The Race -
Lifes's Greatest Lesson.

Mac shares it seems when that when we pursue the things really important to
us, new discoveries present themselves in profound ways.

They all line up so full of hope,
Each thought to win that race.

And fathers watched from off the side
Each cheering for his son.

The whistle blew and off they went,
To win and be the hero there was each young boy's desire.

The little boy who thought to win
Lost his step and slipped.

He fell flat his face.

But as he fell his dad stood up,
which to the boy so clearly said,
"Get up and win the race."

He slipped and fell again!

But in the laughing crowd he searched
And found his father's face;
That steady look which said again:

But trying so hard to catch the lead
He slipped and fell again!

But then he thought about his dad.

"Get up" an echo sounded low.

"Get up and take your place;
For winning is more than this:
To rise each time you fall.

Three times he'd fallen, stumbling;
Three times he rose again;
He still ran to the end.

But when the fallen youngster
Crossed the line last place
the crowd gave him the greater cheer,
For finishing the race.

"To me, you won," his father said.
You rose each time you fell."

For all of life is like that race, with ups and downs and all.
And all you have to do to win,
Is rise each time you fall.
