Anyone searching for motivational and encouraging stories should really get this book. About twenty real-life stories are featured in it — stories of people who were born with a disability or acquired it during their youth and who as children were told that they would never move ahead in life. These people refused to bail out. Instead, they worked their butt off and became role models as adults.
I happen to be very close to one of the people featured in this book, Chris Glavin, and I am very proud of him. He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) when he was five years old. Chris was always told by his peers — and even a private school teacher — that he wouldn’t make it anywhere in life. (Oh yeah, a teacher told him that.) That goes to show…
Anyway, today the guy is anything but a failure. In Chris’ own words, “this (the cynical words from classmates and teacher) only fueled his fire” to work his way to the top and prove them all wrong. Well done, bud! Today, at 29, he is an ADD advocate and CEO of K12 Academics, an informational website for teachers, students, parents and districts officials involved in the K-12 education system.
That’s just his professional life. As a person, Chris is a great, genuine friend, son, brother and boyfriend — and may we say handsome! He’s a very happy person with an incredible personality and he’s extremely passionate about life. As you can see, the possiblities are endless. Believe in yourself!
