For years i have written about the impact that this team has had on me and my life with diabetes. They saved my life and I can’t thank them enough for that. The truth is it was one man that had a dream and believed in me that saved my life. Today that man gave a speech that brought me to tears, taught the world about diabetes and how a bike can change the world.
I have studied public speakers and how they relate to a crowd and how they get everyone interested in what they are saying. I love listening to Martin Luther King speak, I will listen to Les Brown speeches while driving to work and I listen to Phil Southerland speak. The last speaker is a little tougher to find when searching YouTube but today he gave the speech of a lifetime. I encourage everyone to go on Facebook search Team Novo Nordisk and watch the video. This speech will teach you to dream and get you believing that anything is possible. The speech is truth and right from Phil’s heart, it was not written by some speech writer and delivered by Phil. This speech is Phil, he has dreamed about changing the world with a bike and today he reached another dream.
On this first World Bicycle Day I put on the Team Novo Nordisk kit and smiled. Phil Southerland and Team Novo Nordisk saved my life and everyday I get on the bike I smile because I got a second chance at life. I get to live my dream because Phil and the team taught me how to dream and how to fight for what is right in life. It’s not very often that we get to meet our heroes in life. I’m honored that my hero is never to busy to stop and talk. The best thing is that my hero is a hero to so many across the globe and those people have the same relationship with him because Phil takes the time for everyone and encourages everyone that anything is possible!!
