When your desire to win is bigger than your disability

Every Morning I wake up like most people, I find my running shoes and I am off, come back home I do some reading and I prepare myself mentally for the day. At a glance I have not got anything wrong with me, I am author and speaker and I know a few people who think I am lucky and talented and some people talk about how they would love to be in my shoes. However what a lot of people don’t know is that I have my daily struggles and sometimes doing the simplest of things in life can be a struggle. I have an eye condition called Nystagmus ( an Involuntary movement of the eye) which makes it difficult for to do the simplest, line cutting piece of paper in straight line, going a new place because I am not able to read the signs until I am really close and I have to stop in the middle of the day and shut my eyes for few minutes because I am very tired. However despite all these difficulties I was able to write a whole book, I am able to spend hours studying my favourite subjects and as I write this I am half way though writing my second book. How have I managed to achieve what I have achieved despite my disability? I want you to imagine spending everyday trying to make your eyes to focus, I have to take pain killers at the end of each day. How am I able to do what I do despite my disability? my desire is bigger than my disability.
