Diamond in the Rough

I was watching the TED  talk today on the opportunity of adversity by Aimee Mullins. Aimee Mullins was a record-breaking athlete at the Paralympic games in 1996.

Aimee Mullins was born without fibular bones, and had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was an infant. Yet Aimee Mullins has gone on to accomplish great things.  She attributes the following to be one of the strongest characteristics of humanity:

Evolution is not the survival of the strongest but rather the survival of the most adaptable.

One of the most important aspects of adaptability in humans is not skill, knowledge or even physical capabilities. It is the belief that it is possible. It is up to us to help our children, peers and partners remember to move forward and dream big.

Are you encouraging your next generation to explore and adapt?
