Stephen Hawking’s life has been one of great triumph in overcoming huge obstacles. It’s been so triumphant, in fact, that a new film called The Theory of Everything starring Eddie Redmayne was made to honor him and his successes in life.
It is a fantastic movie and one that I highly recommend.
As you experience the film, it causes you to reflect on what makes Hawking himself so remarkable. Yes, he has a truly brilliant mind and yes, he has exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations about his motor neuron disease and quality of life. But what really struck me is the attitude he maintains and perspective he provides.
And his attitude is encompassed beautifully in this short excerpt from the movie where he(played by Eddie Redmayne) responds to a question in the audience asking him what philosophy of life has helped him.
Here is another wonderfully made motivational video that will really inspire you to make the most of your life. If someone with Stephen’s disability can achieve what he has in life then what excuse can possibly come up with?
If that video doesn’t inspire you to get up off your bum and follow your dreams nothing will. Now here are some nice photos from Stephen’s amazing life:
This one is my favourite.
Please share, and inspire everyone you know to be the best they can be and make the most of life.
