Worth Your Time; Let Aimee Mullins Inspire You…

Published on March 23, 2012, by

Because she certainly inspires me…


Aimee Mullins is an athlete, model/actress, and leader by example.  The unfathomable great challenge of losing both her legs at the age of 1 was the adversity that gave her the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary life.


In my effort to provide content that helps support people who want to lead a healthier, happier, and ageless lifestyle I came across the story of Aimee Mullins.  Through the years, it has become apparent that there are a few life-skills that need to be mastered in order to achieve a healthier, happier, and ageless lifestyle.  One determining factor seems to be the ability to overcome your own personal obstacles.  Aimee Mullins shows us that her ability to overcome her physical obstacle was just a switch in perspective. She did not perceive herself as incomplete or incapable as others may have perceived her to be.  She saw herself as quite the opposite. How do you see yourself? Capable! OR Incapable?


Be inspired.

    We have to credit “help along the way” — her parents could have treated her like an invalid – or may not have been able to nurture strong self-esteem in other ways — she didn’t do it alone. NOBODY does, actually.

    Studies have illustrated that almost everyone living a life of extraordinary accomplishment either had an amazingly positive environment growing up or ran across a person who made a difference in their lives at a significant point. (whether or not “against all odds”)

    Great argument for coaching, huh?
