I love watching surfers.  Not only are they incredibly physically fit and strong, they have amazing courage to get out there in treacherous waters, with things that are much bigger than they are lurking beneath the surface.  Each time they go out, they challenge themselves to overcome the unknown.  Even when they get knocked down and endure great setbacks, they muster a rebound to get back on the board and back in the game to take life head on.

Professional surfer Bethany Hamilton lost an arm to a shark doing what she loves.  After that attack, she never gave up.  “My passion for surfing was greater than my fear of sharks” – Bethany Hamilton.  Bethany Hamilton.com

Her story is an inspiration no matter what you do for a living.  What is it that you need to overcome?  What is your shark?
