I Wept Because I Had No Shoes…

You’re probably familiar with the old Persian proverb, “I wept because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.” So many times we’re focused on what we don’t have that we can never get around to using the gifts that we do have.

When I run across someone whose using their gifts without regard to their supposed handicap, I try to honor them in some way because they inspire all of us to look inside at the greatness we’re capable of. Dax Crum One-Handed Basketball playerDax Crum is a Division 1 college basketball player in the U.S. Now that in itself is very special because very basketball players ever reach that level of play. But what makes Dax a hero to me is that he plays at that super-competitive level with ONE HAND. And play he does — as this Fox Sports video shows.

There’s been a lot of talk in recent years about the Law of Attraction, and one of the key principles of that law is “whatever you focus on expands.” Focus on your lack and you’ll get more of it. Focus on your abundance and it will expand. It’s obvious that Dax focuses on the strengths that he has — and he makes the most of them. And so can YOU!
