During the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Tasha Danvers Smith stepped onto the track and took her spot among other 400 meter hurdlers. That moment was one Tasha worked towards for nearly eight years. With setbacks and unplanned life events in her past, she sprinted her way over each hurdle. Today, Tasha says the “setbacks” led to unimaginable success. Her story of victory will surely make you re-think all that happens in life. Life is 40 per cent about what happens, and 60 per cent about how you react to those events.
