Inspiration: You Are Not Your Condition – TEDx Talk by Sean Stephenson

Posted On

You can never have an overdose of Inspiration. Sometimes, we need to be Inspired or Motivated to the point that we get up and DO! Do Something we’ve been scared of or chase that dream we once had but felt we were not capable. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, “What would I do if I wasn’t afraid” Well, I have and so many times I listed a lot of things I would love to do but Fear set in. I’m not perfect, no one really is but we need to understand that Fear really gets no where.

A cool way I use to help me overcome my fears and chase my dreams is Do that thing I’m scared of, yes!!! Of course I might fail but hey I tried and will get better at my next attempt. I love learning new things, reading and researching about things that I’m interested in and in my recent search, I came across this amazing video and knew I had to share on The Spread Media Business Blog. As Business Owners, certain times, we see our Competition doing better and we get scared, lose faith in ourselves or even go into a shell. As someone who wants to start a Business, we think Oh, I don’t have enough money to start, Oh, hey look at a lot of people are doing this, how will I be able to match up but you know those are the limitations we set for ourselves, nobody did that to you, you set it yourself.

Sean Stephenson When Stephenson was born, doctors quickly recognized the signs of the genetic disorder osteogenesis imperfecta, commonly known as “brittle bone disease“. His doctors gave him 24 hours to live and he will be dead. He is 36 years old now and clearly not dead. Sean is what most of us will call or refer to as been “Disabled“but that didn’t stop him. Stephenson began delivering motivational speeches at the age of 17 and hasn’t stopped. He will always say “ I am not my Condition“.

Today, he is known as American therapist, self-help author and motivational speaker and he is just 3 feets tall.

I want you to take the next few minutes and listen to this wonderful Tedx Talk by Sean Stephenson where he talks on The Prison of The Mind.

Warning: You are going to be so Inspired, you will get up and start DOING!!!. Stop setting limitations for yourself! You are amazing with so much potential. Be Inspired!!


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

    God bless Sean! I’m repeating this over and over again! I am not my Condition. This post and the video has made me think about how I limit myself through Self pity. I pray I never do it again. I’ve got so much potential in me.
