Time to “Get” – Your Choice – A Heartbeat, Awhile, or Never
There is nothing wrong with you
I could write so much about the Paralympics – the backstories, the dedication, the performances. Instead, I simply write this – none of those competitors at any time complained that there was something wrong with them – indeed, many are campaigning to remove the word “disabled.”
The overwhelming message that resonated with me and flies in the face of many who blame their circumstances or ‘lack of a talent’ for not achieving any sort of success – there is nothing wrong with you!
In Naked Leader, when we work with people who are blind, have missing limbs, wheelchair users etc. the experience is exactly the same. We find we are working with determined, gifted, and, often humble people who have got to grips with their world and are awesome in their achievements.
So much we can all learn from these talented individuals – we can all achieve success in what we CAN do rather than what we can’t do. You may say David ‘that’s a special world of sport and athletics’ (!!! Think about it!)
..and what about business?
I give you Rosaleen Moriarty-Simmonds who runs a successful consultancy business. Recently on Radio Wales and featured in the Naked Millionaire and author of her own book Four fingers and Thirteen Toes.
So, KNOW this and know this forever, whoever you are, and wherever you are, there is nothing wrong with you.
I see this as the greatest legacy of the Paralympics.
With my love and best wishes
