22 Times

Carl Daikeler meets Tony Horton to develop P90X

If I had known that I was going to fail so many times in my life, I would have kept track. Maybe I could be setting some record. The P90X test version was first marketed in 2005 and bombed. Even people at Beachbody said that the project should be abandoned. It went through 22 versions and failed 22 times before it took off in 2007 and now it is a legendary product in fitness and health. To me,  Carl Daikeler

is one of the great corporate leaders in America and he didn’t give up and he doesn’t give up – if he had, we wouldn’t have  P90X and perhaps millions of people wouldn’t be as healthy as they are today because of it.

This morning on the way to school (we drove because it was raining), the girls and I were listening to the song “Don’t Give Up” on KLOVE. When I got home, I went to YouTube to watch the video and found something even better. It is the story of Derek Redmond with “Don’t Give Up” playing in the background…

Don’t Give Up – Calling Glory (from the album Teach Me To Love)

“This time your heart said it’s had enough
Sick and tired of everything that’s so messed up
You don’t wanna move on just playing games
Praying hard somehow that your life will change
When you feel like you don’t know what to do
Stuck inside this maze you can’t go through

(Chorus)
Don’t give up
Help is surely on its way
And don’t give up
And the dark is breaking in today
And just keep on moving through these storms
And soon enough you’ll find the door
Just don’t give up
Oh, and don’t give up

These walls around you are caving in
And your life seems like it is wearing thin
And your hope is drowning in despair
It looks like you’re not going anywhere
Step inside this heart and then you’ll see
Such a love that is so amazing”
