The Disability Advantage: Keeping New Year’s Resolutions
Can individuals with disabilities make and keep New Year’s resolutions? Absolutely! While people with restrictions and limitations may have increased struggles in fulfilling certain New Year’s resolutions, success can still be had. In fact, people with disabilities may be better equipped than able-bodied people to keep New Year’s resolutions.
People With Disabilities Have What It Takes To Keep New Year’s Resolutions
Did you know that some individuals with disabilities may be especially equipped to keep New Year’s resolutions? This is because people with certain restrictions and limitations have extensive experience with overcoming hardships. Some disabilities require a person to be very resilient, resourceful, patient, and determined. Imagine how helpful these qualities would be to someone attempting to keep a New Year’s resolution, such as reaching long term weight loss goals. Indeed, individuals with disabilities may have an easier time sticking to New Year’s resolutions than some able-bodied people.
Resolve To Increase Awareness Of The Disability Community’s Potential
As an individual with a disability, we’re sure you are aware of the prejudices that exist toward people with physical, mental, emotional, and intellectual restrictions and limitations. Many times, people are unaware of the fact that individuals with disabilities are capable of achieving great things. The best way to display the greatness that lies within you is to achieve great things in 2015! Even if a goal seems too big for you to accomplish, resolve to take steps toward it this coming year. Simply moving toward your dreams will cause others to become more aware of the extraordinary abilities that you possess.
