One of the most heart touching inspirational stories is the story of Bethany Hamilton. At the age of 13, surfing prodigy and Hawaii native Bethany Hamilton lost her entire left arm after being attacked by a tiger shark just off the coast of Kauai. But while most would give up on their dreams, Bethany didn’t give up on her dream of becoming a professional surfer, she was back in the water and back on her board less than a month later after the incident.

Now that’s called perseverance. Today, Hamilton is 23 years old and, yes, she is a  pro surfer.

Tell all the people you care about that you love them as much as you can, because tomorrow might be too late!

 

2. The Story of Dereck Redmond

At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, In the middle of the semi-final race the dreams of one of the sprinters – Dereck Redmon for  an Olympic medal got crushed by a debilitating hamstring injury, but while most athletes would just give up and submit to defeat, bend over and cry, Dereck was determined to cross the finish line, to finish what he started. So he picked himself up off the ground and started hobbling towards the finish lane. Then, just when it seems he might not be able to continue because of the pain, Redmond’s dad forces his way onto the track and puts his arm around his son, who cries on his shoulder as the two finish the race together.

For greater impact, here’s the clip of this touching moment on youtube.

 

1. The story of  Terry Fox

He is one of the most famous athletes in Canadian history (not a hockey player). And that fact is quite a prove of what he achieved.

After Terry  lost his right leg to cancer in 1977 he decided that, if he was going to go on living, he was going to change something, that he was going to make a difference. So in 1980, he began the  Marathon of Hope—He would run 26 miles per day, his goal was  to try to raise money and awareness for cancer research by running all the way across Canada. After 143 and 3,339 miles his cancer spread to his lungs so he had to quit his Marathon of Hope – but not before he became a national hero whose name is as well-known as Wayne Gretzky, he managed to inspire an entire country. Definitely one of the best inspirational stories ever.

      Yes, sometimes it’s really hard watching these videos or reading the stories. Shit happens. That’s why we need to enjoy life as much as we can, because it won’t last forever.

    I was moved to tears after watching Dereck Redmond’s video. Winning is not about medals but about touching hearts of millions of people. People would remember the winner of the medal but Dereck Redmond’s effort would outlive that.

    Hi Hristiqn,
    The stories u presented are really great,human efforts can change the circumstances in fact everything has its opposite hence every adversity has opportunity hidden in it,just we have to grab it and prove yourself to yourself,after all peace of mind is paramount which comes by giving to the world and not by taking from it.

    Thank you so much Cris for posting this wonderful post… You won’t believe how much you have help while I’m reading this post.

    I have taken an initiative of sharing an inspirational story everyday with my Facebook page (Jungle of Success) and from last three months I’ve doing it so I was kinda running short of stories and suddenly got your website… And guess what I just got five different stories just from a single post. I’m gonna explore more your website to read through other stories and I’m sure those will me, after all you and I are on the same track to inspire people and help them get the best out of them.

    Thank you
