Monday Motivation: Dr. Ben Carson

Cuba Gooding, Jr. (l) played Dr. Ben Carson (r) in "Gifted Hands"

Last night, my wife and I watched “Gifted Hands”. The movie is about the life story of world renowned, Dr. Ben Carson. He is the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. I got to hear Dr. Carson speak a few years ago during a leadership simulcast. I’ve been intrigued with him ever since. His story is truly inspiring. He was receiving poor grades in elementary school, and classmates made fun of him continuously for it.

His story all changed for him after his mother discovered that he was having problems with his eyesight. He simply needed glasses. His mother bought his glasses with her savings and it turned him around. His mother was also a continual believer in young “Benny”.

I really can’t do his story justice, so let’s listen to Dr. Carson give you the abbreviated version:

Powerful stuff! To end this post, I’ll let Dr. Carson offer some words of encouragement and motivation to you:

Make it a great Monday!
