I read Inspiration for the New Year, Perspectives on Disability & Success blog post which I found meaningful, encouraging and provided valuable insight.
Some Key Points from the Blog Post:
• "Instead of hiding and feeling ashamed of who we are, we have to show what we are capable of in spite of, or because, we are disabled.”
• "We as future leaders have the unique ability to change the way others think of those with disabilities and ultimately change the world to our liking.
However, in order to do this, we must start by changing ourselves.”
• “With the appropriate types of accommodations and the superb work ethic that we have demonstrated our whole lives as we advanced towards where we are today, we can accomplish anything that we want to in life.”
• "We are not normal people; we are in fact extraordinary. We have tackled challenges that most cannot even fathom, and we have emerged victorious. When any of us confronts attacks of judgment, prejudice, or condemnation, we know exactly how to respond: fight back with wisdom, perseverance, and leadership by example.”
I also enjoyed reading about the Leadership & Development Symposium.
What perspectives do you have from reading Suzanne Aptman’s Lime - boundless ability blog post? Do you have examples of how you have, or will demonstrate the traits/attitudes described in the New Year? Any other tips or stories to help us be all we have the ability to become?
We all look forward to hearing your valuable comments.
