Calvin Borel who is best known as the jockey who won the Kentucky Derby on a horse, Mine That Bird, with a 50-1 shot of winning, is today attempting an unprecedented Triple Crown sweep on two different horses. Go Calvin Go!
I however am writing about him today because of the inspiration and example of how we can learn from him, and how we should all live our lives. I am not saying that we should all drop out of school or become jockeys, but I am talking about following our passions. Of living the life that we want and finding what brings us joy. Calvin knew at a very early age that all he ever wanted was to be a jockey. He began riding races at the age of 8, and then professionally at the age of 16. He is known for his strong work ethic and his eagerness to help when asked. He has worked long and hard and has done so with a passion of doing what he loves.
Calvin proves my point that if we all follow our dreams, and stay true to ourselves, that we will all not choose the same path, or want the same things. But if we truly know what we want, and do whatever it takes to get there with enthusiasm, hard work, and passion, we can have the life that we want.
