Wisdom from Ronaldo

Ronaldo is the all-time World Cup scoring king. Germany’s Mirsolav Klose came within one goal of Ronaldo’s record but was unable to play in Germany’s final World Cup match. Unlike many record-holding athletes, Ronaldo is wonderfully unpossessive of his record. He said, “Congratulations to Klose, to score 14 goals at the World Cup is fantastic. It’s sad that he did not play on Saturday. I was not opposed to him breaking my record. I have made my history. Now it is time for others to write their stories.”

If you achieve something amazing and someone later comes along and does something even more amazing, that in no way diminishes your amazing accomplishment. (Are you listening, ‘72 Dolphins?!?!?)
