The endurance to overcome everyday scenarios isn’t as easy as flipping the light switch or channel surfing one assumes as predetermined. Take for instance the example of Jesse Owens in the 1936 Berlin Olympics who overcame the long running assumption that race superiority predetermined champions. Being born an African-American had the tides of victory overwhelmingly stacked against his favor. He was excluded from dining with the team, forced to sleep in blacks only hotels and was participating in a country that frowned on the color of his skin. This did not deter his disposition as an underdog and instead he went on to win four gold medals becoming the most successful athlete of that competition.
