No Excuses From Randy Snow

Randy Snow says no excuses

Randy Snow taught us that there are no excuses

At the peak of a blossoming tennis career while just a junior in high school, Randy Snow was injured in a farming accident, which left him without the use of his legs. He would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

But Randy never used that as an excuse. Instead, he turned it into a strength. In the process he became the most successful wheelchair athlete in history and the first person ever inducted into the Olympic Hall of Fame in a wheelchair.

Randy electrified our audience in Dallas as he did audiences all around the world. I was very sad when I learned he had passed away suddenly in November 2009. But, as was typical of Randy, he was doing something he loved — ¬†volunteering at a wheelchair tennis camp in El Salvador.

I am so grateful that he left us with his incredible message that regardless of what happens to us, there are NO EXCUSES! And that’s certainly one of the Best of the First 10 Years of AsAManThinketh.net .

    The only thing I was left missing after hearing Randy Snow’s audio was a visual. What a motivator. I can’t wait to get rid of my “but”!!!

    I especially enjoyed his ending quotes, I’m going to use this one in my email signature line next week:

    “There is nothing wrong with a silver medal life, if behind it you have a gold medal effort.” ~Randy Snow.

    Thanks Vic & Lisa! Your website makes a positive influence on lives, something to be proud of :o)

    thank u. Very inspiring. Because I am foreigner I did not understand some words or some portion of the speech but it was nice to here it. “There is no excuse” tells us that we must go forward without any fear of situations and barriers.
    long live Mr. Vic
