What made that moment amazing was the fact that Gibson was injured and had no leg strength whatsoever. He wasn’t even expected to play! What’s more, he didn’t initially suit up for the game. Yet, he was called on to do something extraordinary.
Armed with a strong will and determination Gibson hit that home run with just upper body strength. Winning that game was the catalyst that moved the Dodgers to ultimately win the World Series. He did this without letting what had happened to him in the past get to him.
There are a heck of a lot more situations to look up to and they aren’t all too well-known like some others. For example, consider the strong will of single moms who successfully raise their children because their husbands probably kicked the bucket or just ran away, Looking into the past in such situations will save no one. Just think of people who are obviously disabled, yet they accomplish amazing feats. With strong will and a habit of looking over the past you can do extraordinary things all the time, just like the super moms, super sportsmen or politicians!
Certainly, a strong will plays a role and you do well to cultivate it by looking over the past.
