The Blacksmith is the modern-day welder that takes metal and forges it into a structure. The welder depicts the moral fiber of hard work ethic that made America Great

A person’s potential isn’t measured by what education, ability, or talent that they possess or what opportunity that they have been afforded

If there is one thing that gets misconstrued and has been proven over these last few months, it is that a person’s success isn’t based solely on one’s education, natural abilities and/or talent. A person’s potential isn’t measured by what education, ability, or talent that they possess or what opportunity that they have been afforded. But it equates to one’s moral fiber and perseverance that they demonstrate.

One reason we are drawn to sports is that in sports a person’s success isn’t weighed solely on education, ability, or talent, but success is in proportion to their moral fiber and perseverance that they demonstrate in the arena. One of the classic examples of moral fiber and perseverance is the Herschel Walker story.

The ESPN 30 for 30- The Herschel Walker Story

As a child, Herschel Walker wasn’t anywhere near an athlete or he didn’t even possess any athletic ability or talent. He had other obstacles of learning disabilities and was a favorite target for bullying by others. Herschel Walker proved what Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius stated about moral fiber and perseverance– What stands in the way becomes the way.

Herschel Walker took his moral fiber and perseverance and used his obstacle to focus on developing his athletic ability or talent to became one of the modern-day premier athletes. Herschel Walker set records at Georgia that are still talked and written about even today. Herschel Walker didn’t have any elaborate gym, but simply used basic calisthenics of running, push-ups, and sit ups to develop his athletic ability that made him one of the greatest athletes.

Herschel Walker’s lack of natural talent, ability, and disabilities did not prevent him from becoming one of the premier running backs in collegiate or professional sports. Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker made it a habit of not running around their opponents, but running over them. The only reason that I would give a nod to Herschel Walker for being the top athlete is because of his obstacles that he had to overcome to become an outstanding athlete of the modern-era.

Perseverance has no Consideration of Time or Chance

Herschel Walker’s story on ESPN 30 for 30 is borne out by two quotes from Anu Claudia and President Calvin Coolidge that I refer to when faced with obstacles:

President Calvin Coolidge:

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

Anu Claudia

The race doesn’t always goes to the swift, but to the one that keeps running.

Ecclesiastes 9:11

Again, I observed this on the earth: the race is not always won by the swiftest, the battle is not always won by the strongest; prosperity does not always belong to those who are the wisest, wealth does not always belong to those who are the most discerning, nor does success always come to those with the most knowledge – for time and chance may overcome them all.

What Solomon was stating was that Success can’t be measured or determined by either time or chance, and perseverance has consideration of neither in its pursuit.

I was actually performing aerial patrol in North East Mississippi at tree top level when a F-14 Tomcat from the Jolly Roger Squadron dropped down from 10,000 feet to tree top level about a quarter-of-a-mile ahead of my flight route just to pay their respects before going almost vertical back up to 10,000 feet.
