First, I suggest you watch this interview:
I hadn’t heard of Blake Leeper before, but to give you a really quick summary.
Blake was born without both his legs. The story could have ended up with him being confined to a wheel chair all his life, but that’s not what happened…
He has set his mind to being the fastest man alive.
Wait?! A man without legs being the fastest man alive?
Blake hasn’t let his “disability” disable him.
He has a clear goal and he is taking action to achieve it.
Do people scoff at him and laugh and tell him to set his sights on more realistic goals? Certainly.
But he doesn’t let that stop him, because his goal is clear in his mind. He has absolute certainty.
If you every think that you are encountering adversity or if people try and cut you down and laugh at your goals, you have a choice.
Listen to them and leave your dreams by the wayside and live a mediocre life.
Or live in your own certainty and achieve the seemingly impossible.
