Very often we get disheartened and discouraged by small setbacks in our lives and give up easily on what we want to achieve. Physical handicap or other obstacles no doubt tend to pull us down. But the biggest handicap or obstacle is our own negative mind-set. When our attention shifts from our goal, then whatever we see is an obstacle. If we are determined and stay focused on our goal, positive mental power can overcome all handicaps, setbacks and obstacles.
National volley ball player of India, Arunima Sinha is one such person who has proved this in her life after one of her legs had to be amputated. Generally, after such a handicap we tend to keep our goals and ambitions limited to pursuits more suitable to our new physical reality — but not Arunima Sinha. She chose the toughest goal which tests the physical and mental endurance of even the best and fittest of able bodied people.
