There seems room for celebration in these apparently paradoxical times. Our heroes provide inspiration unlimited, having overcome seemingly impossible odds -consider the following:
Sheena Iyengar, one of the leading experts on “choices” in our increasingly-visual world happens to be blind
One of the greatest composers ever (Beethovan) couldn’t hear his own tunes
StephenHawking inspires us to think of limitless galaxies and dark holes from the confines of a wheelchair
We see spirit triumph over the body – Christopher Reeve, our superman’s body succumbed to an accident, his spirit didn’t; Lance Armstrong won the tour de France after a successful fight with cancer – and declared “it’snotaboutthebike!”
And these are only a sample….so what could be stopping us from reaching greatness?
