I'm not picking on you specifically, I just pulled your quote out of the whole lot.
Now to my point. So, the guy has no limbs but he's up on the stage with a motivational speech? And what is that speech? To overcome adversity?
Well, to be honest, he has not completely overcome adversity. He's a motivational speaker. He's not doing any kind of work that has shown him to
overcome his lack of limbs. Yeah, they show him out there doing things like playing soccer and stuff, but heck, I do that with my kids on a bad hip.
But I'm not a pro. And if I wanted to be a motivational speaker, then it would not go over as well because I have all my limbs.
Yes, it's cool to see this guy did not give up on life altogether, but let's keep things in perspective.
