Helen Keller

“Although the world is full of suffering it is also full of people overcoming it.” Helen Keller

Helen Keller’s quote is one that beautifully reframes how people need to look at every day struggles. Issues in daily life often seem overwhelming but Helen Keller’s quote is absolutely one to be remembered. Every day people undergo difficulties but every day there are tons more people that are overcoming them. It is important to always remember that miracles happen every day. Now conversely failures happen just as often but it is about keeping your focus in the correct energy. Positive energy is incredibly encouraging and it can help a person to change the lens through which they view the world. A person that is encouraged and positive can help a person to always look towards the positive aspect going through life. No matter how the chips may fall in your life it is important to always remember that somebody somewhere has gone through the same thing as you are. People are amazingly similar in so many ways. Inspiration can be found from many unlikely sources. Recently an acquaintance told me about an incredible new motivational speaker in the area who has undergone his own traumatic injury. Gabe Hurley is a local survivor who has engaged in motivational speaking in relation to the injury that he endured. He is a wonderful example of Helen Keller’s quote in action. He certainly has every reason to feel sorry for himself but conversely he uses his injury as a gift to help and inspire people. Gabe could easily feel sorry for himself with all of the vices that he now endures moving forward in life. Gabe helps to offer some prospective to people as they are going through their lives. It is important to always remember that somebody somewhere always has it better than you; and conversely somebody somewhere always has it worse off. It is important to remember that people are finding the inspiration to continue and overcome seemingly insurmountable things every day. I know that for me this fact really has helped me as I have trekked along on this glorious path that we call life. A person’s focus always has to be towards the positive aspects of life. It is entirely too easy to always find yourself tempted to look towards the negative. I would love to hear any thoughts that you may have.
