"The one with our reason for living..."

In life, we are avid followers of change. Humans interactions are, after all dynamic. Experiences teaches us that though it may not be possible to change the tides - we can always learn how to swim.

But when you have lost faith in life, what then keeps you living?


A son says to his father: 'Dad, would you be willing to run a marathon with me? The father, despite his age and a heart disease, says 'YES'. And they ran that marathon, together.

The son asks: 'Dad, can you run another marathon with me?' Again father says 'YES'.
They ran another marathon, together.

But one day the son asks his father once again: Dad would you please do the Iron Man with me?' Now just in case you wouldn't know, 'The Iron Man' is the toughest triathlon in existence; 2.4 mile swim, then 112 mile by bike, and finally another marathon 26.2 mile running, in one stroke. Again the father says 'YES'.

How did they fare? This video sums it all. Try figuring out who's the father and who's the son.


In case you're still looking for that inspiring purpose in life - this is the story of Dick & Rick Hoyt. They both share the best inspiration for living.
