What are your abilities? What are your limitations?
You might have a hard time getting Bill Shannon to answer that second question. Though he was born with a degenerative hip condition, nothing really limits him. He has lived his life on crutches and instead of considering them a hindrance, he uses them as a tool, a tool for self-expression. He has created his own style of dance, combining influences of breakdancing and skateboarding along with his unique tools. He glides seemingly effortlessly around his city and his life, no doubt entertaining and inspiring countless by-standers. He’s even created a video on YouTube to teach others with crutches all of his moves.
Next time you think you can’t. Remember Bill Shannon. He’s a great example of the fulfillment of human potential.
If Bill can, you can.
