The important thing in life is not the triumph, but the fight; the essential thing is not to have won, but to have fought well.

Inspired by the words of the Bishop of Pennsylvania, Ethelbert Talbot, Pierre de Coubertin first spoke this phrase in a slightly different form at a reception given by the British government on 24 July 1908. It went on to become the Olympic Movement’s creed.

Thanks to the Olympians supporting the Mental-Aid Foundation, Steve Podborski, Franz Klammer, Ashleigh McIvor, Jungle Jim Hunter, Kathy Kreiner, Franz WeberChandra Crawford, Mark Tewksbury and Christina Smith.

Some people, some charities, stand like beacons in the night. They shine brightly to help others find their way. Still, some cannot see the light well enough, and they need help. There are people, then, who will lend a hand to raise others up. Here, one can find the light and the help to find the way to it …

There is never a day goes by that I don’t think of how different life could have been for me compared to the blessed life I have lived. At 9 I was doing flips on my bed and missed causing a massive concussion that required 18 months of retraining. From a coma, to someone who has suffered from mental illness every day. No one would think I struggled unless you live in my world. I have had help every step of the way and without it I’m not sure where I’d be. Those with mental illness live in a world you and I can’t see. Until we care enough to help them see better, you and I have not done enough to help those in need!

It was not heroes that met the challenge, the challenge was met, and the heroes were born.

If you find preciousness in you, you will find it in others too. When you find it in others, you will find it in you too … and for the first time, you are the greatest healing force on this Earth.

When you choose to succeed, extend that choice to another too, when you choose to be happy, extend that choice to another too. In doing so you act from love, and this love is what it means to be a friend to mankind.

I feel it is a grave danger to conclude another; instead, let’s see their possibility, let’s be there for another and rise as a humanity.

Every person born has value and offers a unique gift to the world. Let’s invest in both the discovery and acceptance of what those whom we label as ‘mentally ill’ are really here to share.

The progress made in the last 100 years, towards diagnosing, treating, and managing mental illness, is truly amazing. But now, more than ever, we must continue funding medical research and educating the public. It’s a daunting process, but together, we can truly change lives.
