The Incredible Power Of The Human Spirit – Turning Adversity Into Opportunity

I just saw this video a few days ago and I’ve got to say, I very nearly shed a tear. It’s an inspiring and profound look at the power of our human spirit and what it really means to face adversity and adaptation.

Aimee Mullins is a wonderful woman, a great speaker, an Olympic athlete, a model, and an actress. She was also born with no shin bones. But looking at her life it’s hard to even associate her with the word, “disabled”. She’s proof that you can do whatever you set your mind to. And that’s exactly why I want you to watch this video.

And if you tend to tear up in movies, you might want to grab a tissue before watching

What I’d like to know is your story. Have you ever came across a challenge or been faced with adversity? Have you ever experienced a blessing in disguise? Tell me your story in the comments below. I can’t wait to read them.
