"If your life was a book, how would you want your story to go?"
This was the question Amy Purdy asked the audience at the beginning of her TED Talk. Since I referred yesterday to this year being the year of No Limits for me, I thought I would share the talk a friend shared with me today. Amy Purdy is a pro-snowboarder who lost both her legs when she was 19 due to an illness. She has not let that obstacle prevent her from going after her dreams and living her life to the fullest. She is truly an inspiration.
As she says "Our borders and our obstacles can only do two things:
- Stop us in our tracks or
- Force us to get creative."
Not only did she get back into snowboarding after losing both her legs, she became a world champion.
Let 2012 be the year of no limits for you too. Go after your dreams! How will your story unfold this year?
P.S. I love TED TALKS. Anyone have other inspiring talks or videos they wish to share?
