Don't Let Anything Stand In Your Way
During my early childhood, I made the most important decision of my life. I decided there was no reason that my disability, as difficult as it may have been, would prevent me from fulfilling all my dreams
and would stop me from being truly happy with my life.
Although I was placed in a special school, together with children who suffer from mental retardation and autism, I fought to break out from that destiny and integrate in an ordinary school with ordinary kids,
excel in anything I chose to do, including school and enjoy my life just like any other kid in my age.
It wasn't easy, yet I came victorious, proving to others and myself that there was no goal that I couldn't achieve. Over and over again, I overcame the obstacles and prejudice of society, understanding
that there was no limit to the human spirit.
Today, I am an owner of a successful business; I have a lot of true friends. I go out enjoy myself with my friends, travel around the world and coach people to fulfill their own wishes, under the motto
that everything is really possible - if one only believe in oneself.
