The details of the story aren't particularly important other than to flesh out the principle involved. In this case, the principle is connected to a track competition.
As this particular track race progressed, someone from one team ran so close to someone from the other team that the cleats on their running shoes actually pierced the ankle of the other runner, who immediately dropped to the ground & began screaming in pain. The perp (I wonder how many times I've been that perp myself?) ran on, quite likely too focused on the finish line to give much thought to the scene in her rear view mirror. Racers from both teams followed suit & ran past the injured runner, ignoring the moaning form in their way.
If there's a race to be run, surely winning it is far more important than anything else that might happen in the process. Surely?
Along comes Samaritan Runner, a lady from the competitive team who simply could not leave her opponent alone & suffering. She stopped, helped the wounded runner to her feet, and then delivered her to the Medical Tent before returning to the race, and onto the finish line - - not to win, but to finish what was before her.
Isn't that the point: To run the race set before us; not to win, but to finish?
Success is getting what you want;
happiness is wanting what you get.
Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.
