When Rejection Gets You Down [Video]

When trying to accomplish any major goal in life, rejection and obstacles are inevitable. The key is to learn from your mistakes and persist through it until you succeed. This is easier said than done.

This "must see" video is a story about a person who truly inspires me. His name is Kyle Maynard and he was born without ANY arms or legs. I had the great honor of having breakfast with him several years ago.

This video is the story about his life and about his most recent accomplishment (in a VERY long list of accomplishments) which was to climb the tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.

This video is a MUST SEE video. Trust me.

    I am good friends with someone with this same condition. He too is more upbeat and positive than most “normal” people. It is a humbling thing to be in his presence, and to see these individuals succeed in spite of everything.

    “Make no excuses”. I think this is a very powerful message and we should all when feeling low come back and again watch this video. Thanks a lot.

    This is a truly brilliant, and inspiring video – it shames us when someone with such disabilities can achieve something so amazing.

    Kyle you really brought me to tears. I have so much respect and admiration for you. May god give you the courage to continue doing these amazing things.

    This is amazing. I always thought that I have got the biggest problem in my life but when I saw this, I felt that my problem is nothing compared to him.
    Bravo Kyle!!!
