Overcoming Fear and Achieving Success

2016-0227 Fear

Although I have written and shared hundreds of posts on Beyond Adversity, not a single post deals with the topic of stuttering. I haven’t intentionally avoided topics related to stuttering, I simply had nothing to say. However, I found the following video about stuttering and public speaking to be informative, humorous, inspirational, and worthy of sharing. You should watch the video even if you don’t stutter or intend to be a public speaker, because the video is really about overcoming fear and achieving success.


Thanks to Megan Washington for sharing her story with TED Talks; TED Talks for allowing and encouraging Washington to share her story; Google for helping me find the story; and all the people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible for me to share the picture and video in this post.

Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.
