I’ve accomplished some lofty goals and expect to keep reaching high. I don’t have words to express how overwhelmingly incredible I found the accomplishment of four-year-old Matthias Vescelus.

Matthias lost his vision due to cancer when he was still a baby. When he was only three, he set a goal to participate in the Reebok Spartan Race in Indiana when he turned four. In doing so, he began to solve the problems necessary to demonstrate to the world the power of possibility for those who believe they can achieve! My words will not match this video and I simply hope you find it as inspiring as I did.
