Be All That You Can Be

Recently, we received this lovely and inspiring message in response to one of our videos.

So, we thought it’d be great to share with you on this beautiful day before Thanksgiving.

Marcie wrote:

“Keep preaching the truth. There used to be an ad for the army that said, “Be all you can be.”

Of course, it included “in the army.”

I have been blind since birth and was told that I had to be twice as good to even be (sort of) equal.

But, when it came to vocational rehabilitation (as a client), I was supposed to take anything the placement specialist wanted me to take for a job.

I didn’t completely accept what he said, but I was underemployed for almost 22 years so I felt a bit helpless.

When I went back to get two masters degrees; one in vocational rehabilitation counseling and the other in vision rehabilitation therapy.

I came in with the attitude that I was not going to treat my clients the way I was treated.

I go with the premise that the cup is half full, not half empty and that even though a person can’t do something the same way they did it before a vision loss.

They still need to find a way to do the things they want to do, just maybe a different way.

Even if it’s truly not possible, like flying a plane with no vision, they can adapt.

Whether it be helping build the plane or repairing it or owning an air service…

So, keep on encouraging others who are blind/vision impaired to dare to dream and achieve their dreams.”

A client asked me to quote, keep it real, un-quote, so…

One of our clients from India recently signed up for a course that we offer called Train The Trainers…
This is an online course we offer where we teach individuals how to master being an assistive technology instructor.
Before he signed up though, he asked that I “keep it real” about things.
He wanted to know if there was a true living to be made teaching people with disabilities how to use their technology?
He also wanted a real perspective verses a “unicorn outlook” on the industry of assistive technology teaching, so here goes!
Watch the good, bad and ugly of just about anything you do in the video below:
