It’s all up to you, baby!
This is one lesson we learn when we read stories of turning great challenge into triumph. Some of the most well-documented tales of inspiration come from people like:
- Helen Keller – deaf & blind and still managed to write 12 books
- Beethoven – lost his hearing yet wrote some of the best classical music, ever!
- Victor Frankl – despite unspeakable horrors in concentration camps wrote Man’s Search for Meaning & 32 other books
- Leonardo DiVinci, Walt Disney, Einstein – all had learning disabilities or dyslexia yet they did brilliant, impressive things and made their own extraordinary marks on the world.
- J.K. Rowling – single mom on welfare until she wrote The Harry Potter Series. Now she’s got it made in the shade!
These are just a few examples of people’s personal histories that demonstrate why it is important never to give up on our hopes and dreams and pursue our passions in life. You never know where they will lead to if you dare to follow their flight.
