Most people are privileged to live on this planet because they have everything they need to achieve their dreams. Unfortunately, some people confront obstacles in their lives that prevent them from realizing their aspirations. Some people are born with physical deformities such as no arms or legs, blindness, or deafness, which make it difficult for them to live a regular life and achieve their goals. Some people grow depressed as a result of their physical limitations and eventually lose up on their aspirations; others decide to beg on the street or turn on their families.
With these physical limitations, some people pledge not to give up on their dreams and instead devise new ways to realize them. These various methods they employ to attain their objectives sometimes come as a surprise to us, and most of us are blown away. And people are blown away because nstead of giving up on their aspirations, they discover other ways to develop and perfect other bodily skills, which they then employ to their advantage, and even motivates others not to look down on themselves
