Pain fuels passion. Passion is fueled by what we think we need. In Finding Nemo Dory’s pain was short term memory loss. This challenge (no such thing as a disability) spurred her on to finding Nemo. Was it Nemo she was trying to find… or herself? Contribution in the face of a personal challenge will always benefit the one who is contributing.
What challenge do you have? Acknowledge it as Dory did, but make your passion a TOP PRIORITY. Let your passion lead your pain, not the other way around.
