  1. Wow. OK, no complaining today about anything that doesn’t seem to go my way.

    I like her idea of looking for opportunities to overcome obstacles.


  2. This reminds me of the book Think and Grow Rich. The author had a child that was born without ears and was told that he would never be able to hear. He taught his child from a young age that it was not a disability and he went on to hear and never let his “disability” hold him back. This was a very inspirational video! Thanks for sharing.

  3. It’s a sort of psychological homeopathy: she overcomes a challenge by challenging herself. Hats off!
