Iron Will

Larry, a 77 years old kind man loved his wife so much. He has been with her for 57 years and he reached a point where he could never imagine life without her. But sadly, Larry's wife suffered from a kidney failure and had to be hospitalized. Larry knew that if his wife got a kidney transplant she could be saved but he didn't have any clue where do find a donor. After searching for sometime with no luck Larry decided to do something really strange. He wore that wooden sandwich like billboard which had "Need kidney for wife" written on it. Larry started walking in the streets every day for hours. Larry also had a day job so he had to do this every single day after completing his full work day!
Larry walked for 250 miles (or more in some stories). One day he walked 15 miles in a severe hot climate. Larry also had problems in his knees that made walking even harder. People offered him money but his response was "thank you i just want a kidney for my wife to save her". Larry kept walking for one complete year! until he was 78 years old! Yes one full year and in the end he found the right donor and saved his wife.
Larry saved the life of his beloved wife because of his iron will and solid determination.
Its extremely easy to come up with an excuse or to blame someone for your misfortune. Lying to oneself is one of the shortest routes to failure. If you want to see how success really works then pay attention to the success stories of people like Larry Swilling, the 78 years old man who walked 250 miles to save his wife.
