One of the most inspirational people for me is Ben Carson. His childhood was a hard and riskful one, but with the strength and faith of his mother, he became the head of the pediatric neurosurgery of Johns Hopkins at the young age of 33 and one of the the top 10 brain surgeons that specializes on pediatric brain surgery. He did surgeries no one else dared to do before. One of his great achievements was the separation of the Binder twins joined on their heads in 1987. In his first book “Gifted Hands” he describes his childhood and how he became who he is now.
He wants to inspire as many young people as possible to believe in themselves and jump over the borders that seem to interfere with their future plans. He shares his “life philosophy” in his book “Take the Risk“. On the basis of four questions, Dr. Carson can determine whether he should do something or not:
- What’s the best thing that happens if I do something?
- What’s the worst thing that happens if I do something?
- What’s the best thing that happens if I do nothing?
- What’s the worst thing that happens if I do nothing?
Let this man’s life inspire yours too.
