She’s Grateful to Be Paralyzed

In 2004, Meg Johnson fell off a cliff and broke her neck. Paralyzed and in a wheelchair, Meg is now a motivational speaker, inspiring audiences around the world with her personal motto, which she says is applicable for people of all abilities: When life gets too hard to stand, just keep on rollin’.

In an interview sponsored by ForwardWalking.com, Meg explained a few things she does to help her keep on rollin’ forward. Her opening statement will give you chills…

My favorite quote from our interview was when she said: “There’s nobody who can come over here and save me because the person who’s keeping me down is myself.” That line is so true. Oftentimes, we are the only true obstacles that are holding ourselves back from chasing our dreams and accomplishing great things.

I will forever be grateful that Meg and I were able to meet last year. She doesn’t know it (yet), but my interview with her changed my life. Her cheerful persistence in the midst of overwhelming odds quietly destroyed any of my own personal excuses (a most beautiful destruction, to be sure). She has inspired me to move keep rollin’ forward.
