Karteek and overcoming obstacles
- Hi all,
Congratulations, Karteek! And thank you for your inspiring
report of your 6th successful Channel swim. I like the image of many
supportive people swimming with you.
Reading your post reminds me of a new book I am enthralled
by: "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" by Aron Ralston. He is the
brave young fellow who, a year ago, while hiking through a remote
narrow canyon in Utah, had his right hand pinned by an immovable
(except when it fell) bolder. After 5 days he finally realized that
the only way he could survive was to amputate his own hand, which he
did. Sounds gory, but his book is fascinating and inspiring.
Others have mentioned here Lance Armstrong's books in the same
"Cheerfulness is progress,
Progress is satisfaction,
Satisfaction is God Himself."
Have an inner and outer sunny day, Akankha
