Lori has a very inspirational post today. I was at the Tom Ferry Summit and was equally impressed with his determination to make things happen.

Check out this guy - Anthony Robles. Anthony appeared at the Tom Ferry Summit in Anaheim last week. What an inspiration!

Anthony was born with one leg. Throughout his life he achieved so much with one leg. He played football and then switched to wrestling. He went on to win the NCAA National College Championship for his weight. He even won an ESPY Award for his accomplishments in college wrestling.

What really struck me as I listened to him talk was that the other wrestlers thought he had an advantage with only one leg! It is all in perception.

Anthony said he had one leg since birth so that is all he knew. He said the bigger challenges in life for him was his dad leaving his mom and then losing their home. Also his girlfriend of three years, dad died.

Anthony is a positive, determined, intelligent and driven young man - truly an inspiration for all of us, to accomplish all we can and strive to help others and the world each day.
