My friend, W Mitchell was in a terrible motorcycle accident, two-third of his body was burned. As he lay in the hospital, he decided he’d figure out a way to contribute, no matter what. Even though his face had been burned beyond recognition, he believed his smile could light up their world. He believed he could cheer people up; he could listen to people and comfort them. And he did.
A few years later he was in another accident. This time in a plane, that paralyzed him from the waist down. Did he gave up? No, instead, he noticed a beautiful nurse at the hospital. “How could I get a date with her?” he asked. His buddies told him he was nuts. Maybe he secretly agree with them. But he didn’t stop dreaming.
W. Mitchell saw a great future with this beautiful woman. He used his charm, his fine wit, his free spirit, and dynamic personality to attract her, and he eventually ended up marrying her. Most people in his position would never have even tried. But he reached for the stars – and changed his life forever.
The world makes way for a man who knows where he is going.
