Growing up, my mother used to tell us often to banish the word “can’t” from our vocabulary. We were not allowed to think that we were incapable of doing something we set our minds to. The older I get, the more I need to take that advice to heart.

Here are a few examples of people who didn’t take “can’t” as an option. We recently posted this gallery on five inspirational athletes who beat the odds and turned their disabilities into super abilities. Check it out: 5 Inspiring Athletes Who Overcame Disabilities

I hope you’re inspired by this article, and I hope it gets you thinking about a life without limits. Whether you feel handicapped physically or emotionally, there’s truly nothing you can’t achieve if you decide to never give up.
