He was promoted to manager

Steven is a financial consultant, he was promoted to manager from associate manager last month, he told us his story.
In the beginning of year2007, he was thinking of running marathon, he wrote down this goal. Steven also told all his friends, colleagues, relatives that he wanted to participate the marathon race. Ironically, he just said only but no action.
One month later, Steven was involved in the car accident and his left arm was injured, he needed help from colleagues to write reports for him because he was left -handed. At that time, he thought he could use this as an excuse, but after some deep thought, he felt embarrassed not to run marathon.
Luckily, he met a marathon group, the group leader encouraged him to start running marathon, he finally made it .
He feel motivated whenever he see motivated words on other participants' shirts. Since then, he run regularly and build up his confidence level. Because of the positive mindset, it helped him hit the sales target and was promoted to manager.
He now encouraging people to run marathon.It can test your endurance.
Note:
The Marathon is a long, grueling race which traditionally closes the Olympic events. It is taken from the amazing achievement of the Greek runner Pheidippides, who ran over twenty-six miles in for hours, taking news to Athens of the Persians’ defeat at the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C.

Life is up and down. With self-motivation and motivation from others, we can achieve the goal.
