What are your goals and what is your action plan for achieving them?
Read on to discover several lessons from the inspiring life of Wilma Rudolph that will help you form an action plan in order to make your dreams a reality.
The Remarkable Story of Wilma Rudolph
As the doctor examined four-year-old Wilma’s twisted leg, he told the little girl that she would never walk again.
But Wilma and her family believed she could overcome all odds.
“When you come from a large, wonderful family, there’s always a way to achieve your goals,” Wilma explained. “‘I can’t’ are two words that have never been in my vocabulary.”
Not only did Wilma walk again, but sixteen years later she also competed in the 1960 Olympic games in Rome.
She became the first American woman to win three gold medals in one Olympics, and she set a world record in the 200-meter dash.
