- THE RACE is the perfect gift for parents, coaches, youth group leaders, teachers, and anyone else who works with children. It is also ideal for the corporate gift market, which is a large component of Successories' sales.- Mac Anderson is the author of "The Nature of Success (J. Countryman Books, 5/03), which has sold 60,000 copies to date. He is a popular motivational speaker and speaks 25 times a year to business and community groups.
The lesson of "rising each time we fall" is brought to life in this unforgettable, inspirational gift book from Mac Anderson, the former CEO and founder of Successories(, based on the poem written by Dee Groberg. Makes an ideal gift for parents, teachers, or anyone who works with children.
An illustrated poem, this is the heart-wrenching story of a boy in a footrace hoping to win, but falling again and again. Each time he wants to give up, knowing, pace by pace, that he has lost any chance of winning and that his dad, watching from a distance, will be disappointed. But each time he gets back up and runs as hard as he can. For inhis heart he can hear the voice of his dad: "You haven't lost at all; for winning is no more than this, to rise each time you fall." As the boy finishes the race, the crowd cheers as loudly for him as for the winner, and his father's proud look is his true reward.
Mac Anderson lives in Illinois.
