One of the ongoing theme’s that I’ve been working with over the last few months seems to be the recurring word “disability” rearing its head as a reason why a person is not achieving what they want in life. These disabilities have ranged from chronic aches, reading disorders, seizures, ADD, and anything else.. pick your flavor! Every now and again was one of the disabilities chosen to be overcome in option of pursuit of the results rather than just waiting to see what will happen.
Anyway, here’s the scoop.. I have a “disability” as some would call it. I have had my shoulder thats had re constructive surgery 4 times. I get some pretty indescribable headaches. I ache if the weather changes and the pressure does along with it. Yet, through it all I tend to find a way to overcome these challenges, make the most of skills I have and move forward in pursuit of my goals.
Some of you may remember Susan Boyle, the singing sensation of 2009’s Britains Got Talent. That many people don’t know or realize is that she’s also got a disability from oxygen starvation at birth. When asked about it, she was quoted with saying, ” I was slightly brain damaged at birth, and I want people like me to see that they shouldn’t let a disability get in the way. I want to raise awareness – I want to turn my disability into ability.”
I couldn’t agree more! The ability to capitalize upon the “disability” to seize the day with the abilities you already have! She’s on top of the singing world now, impacting thousands and a source of UK National Pride for her efforts… at 48 years old!
