We live in a world where our perception of ourselves, others, and all that surrounds us is so influential in the lives we live. As a speaker I love learning from everyday experiences, and as someone living with Cerebral Palsy I get some very interesting perspectives which if articulated right have universal lessons within them.
Everyday that we are out and about people are quick to make assumptions about one another, and in looking into the lives of others there are three assumptions I meet on a regular basis.
This third group of people are cool because they notice everything but the unfortunate thing is that they put challenge ahead of opportunity. Now people are welcome to their assumptions but my concern is that when they hit a spot of adversity in their own life, the hurdle is going to much more difficult to leap over and it is not our situation that makes us but our attitude, yes our attitude determines our altitude.
Can I encourage us all to be opportunity centric, to put opportunity ahead of challenge because when we see the best in things we see the best in us and we jump high.
