Blind, deaf, and dumb. They said Helen Keller would never be able to speak, hear, or see. But as you’ll see in this video, after her 7th lesson with Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller was able to speak her very first sentence.
I am not dumb. – Helen Keller
These four simple words echoed in my ears, powerful, and majestic. I could feel hot tears rolling down my cheeks. You see, we all have those times when we feel like we can’t do something. Or we forget how truly powerful we are. We forget that we hold in our hands and our minds great and wonderful things which we cannot yet even fathom. We let little things get in the way of our potential greatness. Maybe you feel the same way. You tried, it didn’t work, and so you gave up. I want you to know that no matter what it is that you want to do, if you need it bad enough, you can accomplish the impossible. Watch, and be amazed. It only takes one person to believe that the impossible is possible to make it a reality.
Remember this whenever you come across something that you feel you can’t do. Perhaps it is not that you can’t do it, but rather that you just need to find another way to learn it, to get around it. Perhaps there is a new idea that only you can find and bring to the world.
What if all along, your challenges, your struggles, and that heavy thing that weighs on your soul were actually your gift to the world, waiting to unfold? – Selena Marie
Helen Keller became a world renowned author, political activist, and lecturer. All because she believed she could be more than what other people thought she could be, and because one woman was willing to take the chance to help her find a new way to do the seemingly impossible.
Are you the person who everyone thinks can’t do something? Or are you the person who finds a way to do the impossible and to help others do it as well? We are capable of so much more than we realize. Have faith, and remember you are stronger and more capable than you know! – Selena Marie
So what’s standing in your way?
