Your life is a story with new pages being written and new pictures being added to that story every day. But that doesn’t mean that you are always going to be on track.

Pictures and videos are powerful reminders of who you are and where you want to go. Seeing yourself when you were at your best and firing on all cylinders, helps keep you focused and on course.

People who intend to go the distance use the pictures and videos, of both their struggles and their triumphs, to reinforce their determination to succeed.

Pictures that are locked in our mind become the powerful moments we learn from. These images teach us over-and-over again, how persevering is the key to reaching your goal.

They make us anxious to create even more pictures to capture what comes next in life!

Editor’s Note:  The pictures and videos below are a composite of pieces that were taken during the road journeys of 1995 and 1998.
Whenever Jesse and John are seen together, these are pieces from 1995. Most of the other pictures are from the cross Canada journey of 1998.
The exceptions are the pictures of Jesse and John meeting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Ontario presentation, and the Hockey Night in Canada video, all of which were taken in the years between 1995 and 1998.
The picture of the Olympic torch from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver was taken in London on Christmas Eve 2009.
