Discover Your Pioneer Spirit

America was built by self-reliant, independent individuals who had the tenacity to overcome any challenge. We, as people with disabilities, need to focus on the positive aspects of our lives. We all have talents in need of further development. With fierce tenacity, visualize your own success and further develop one talent that you possess. Utilize your skills to create your own independence.

Activities that yield a measurable result are most desirable and inherently good. Two examples are washing dishes and growing a small tomato plant. You can experience these activities by seeing clean dishes, touching the growing plant, tasting your tomatoes—even hearing water washing over the dishes. Get involved, create something, do something! Your pioneering efforts will create an unparalleled feeling of self-satisfaction and tremendous accomplishment.
