The day Claudio Vieira de Oliveira was born, doctors advised his mother to let the child starve to death.
Claudio was born with a rare condition that contorted his spine and limbs in a manner none of us are accustomed to. His head rests backwards on his spine and his limbs lay twisted under him. He essentially has an upside down head.
As Claudio grew, he realized he could walk on his knees, and even use a pen with his mouth and his lips to operate a cell phone. As the years went by he grew in confidence, if not in stature… but that never stopped him from chasing his dreams.
Fast forward to today, Claudio is 37 years old and an accountant, celebrated public speaker and published writer. Check out part of his amazing story in the video below and share his beautiful mentality today… having joy is a CHOICE!

Yeah, I am pretty humbled.
Like you I will be more thankful for all I have and not be so unthankful for the things I think I don't have.

In Brazil, China and India you can find the most rare cases because these countries are very populated.
