Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

George Sampson look like just an ordinary 13 year old boy who loves to dance but actually he is not. Hoping for a better life for him and his family, back in 2007, when an opportunity comes, George tried his luck and auditioned in Britain’s Got Talent.

Even though George Samson performance was terrific, he failed to make it to the contest semi finals. Judges commented that the teenage street dancer was not ready yet. It was a heart breaking loss for George. Adding more insults to injury, He also had to cope with a rare condition called Scheuermann's disease, a curvature of the spine that hits fast-growing teenagers. The condition left him blind in one eye for two months before Christmas 2007 and doctors had warned him he should stop his beloved breakdancing in case it left him permanently disabled.

"The spinal nerves were trapped and it affected my optic nerves. I lost all my coordination and it was really hard to dance, as I didn't have my balance. I kept bumping into everything." George Sampson said

George never gave up, a year after a heartbreaking failure, George tried it again. More determined, More focused and with more confidence and techniques, George showed the world what he can do.


"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail"- Ralph

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up
-Galatians 6;9

  1. i guess the adage 'there's no harm in trying' has nothing to do with this because trying, in george simpson's case, might cause him harm..

    funny how two hours ago i was at the shrink's office for a session and she gave me a blank sheet of paper & made me write about anything and what i wrote about is, surprise surprise-- passion.. on my case, reading books. anyhow what im trying to point out is that if there is something that we are so passionate about, we must not hinder ourselves from it, we must nurture it. our passions define us.

    its a big piece of the puzzle. george simpson pursued his passion, refused to give up and he triumphed.(;

    i hope we could be all like that.

    great post, as always (;

  2. i've read about his success story and seen his videos many times! he's quite an inspiration for the young generation to never give up on their passion. his win was well-deserved.
