– Stephen Hawking
Each morning I have the distinct pleasure of arriving in your inbox to share my thoughts and experiences with mindset in service a living with greater resilience in the presence of life’s challenges.
I had planned on sharing something entirely different today until I awoke to the news of the passing of theoretical physics titan Stephen Hawking.
Stephen has been a lifelong role model for me as someone who continued to stretch his own mind and challenge our understanding of our place in the universe.
Many of my coaching clients are young adults or in their teens and are not familiar with Stephen. I enthusiastically introduce them to him as someone who thrived in spite of his physical challenges. As someone who has defied the odds and was a shining example of resilience.
In recent years, I’ve referenced him as someone who taught me to live fully with a physical disability. I go into this more deeply in today’s video. I hope you enjoy it.
