Spiritual Sunday - Scott Sonnon someone you should know!

I speak and write frequently about the importance of TENACITY and GRIT! Today on Spiritual Sunday I want to share a story demonstrating this TENACITY and GRIT.   

To say Scott has grit is an understatement.  I also give credit to his mother because I too am a mother like his; a mother who will let no obstacle stand in her or her children's way.  

As you know I am on a mission change the world, so that no child will ever have an experience like Scott had to endure.  I too, carry with me the scars of the battles I had to fight through my educational experiences but like Scott, it has made me stronger and with my innate tenacity and grit I am unstoppable. 

This is a must watch video for every person, parent, teacher, administrator... Remember to really have empathy we need to be open to learning about the experiences of others.  The year 2014 is the year of EMPATHY (click there to see old posts on empathy from previous years - search empathy in this blog to see posts from 2014).

To show your support for Scott please vote for Scott for "The Ultimate Men's Health Guy Search" (click link to vote and learn more about Scott!!).  Proceeds from this win will go towards Dyslexia.

This post is not about getting votes for Scott this post is about getting the world to know about Scott life experience!  Scott has a purpose and message that not only benefits people with dyslexia but every person who has not fit in or felt different (a Dragonfly).  Scott is an inspiration for all and everyone can learn from him.  I encourage you to follow Scott on his webpage/blog, some wonderful articles to keep you motivated physically and emotionally. 

I have now added Scott to my list of people I admire & would like to meet so I can learn from him, be motivated by him, and connect with a kindred spirit! 

**(Coaching note: if you don't have your list of people you admire & would like to meet - get one started today!)

High five to all my Dragonfly friends out there!  I love the quote below from Scott because this is exactly the mission I am on - helping everyone find their learning style, purpose, and inner spirit!
