…Continued from yesterday

Talk 5: Looking for answers and inspiration, Keller’s mother came across a travelogue by Charles Dickens, American Notes, in 1886. She read of the successful education of another deaf and blind child, Laura Bridgman, and soon dispatched Keller and her father to Baltimore, Maryland to see specialist Dr. J. Julian Chisolm. 

Lesson 5: The good life you desire may not come without a quality life. Invest in yourself. Read books in the area of your needs. When you read, you rub minds, and draw inspiration and hope from those that have gone ahead of you.

Talk 6: In 1890, Keller began speech classes at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Boston. She would toil for 25 years to learn to speak so that others could understand her.  Keller became determined to attend college. She attended the Cambridge School for Young Ladies, a preparatory school for women. As her story became known to the general public, Keller began to meet famous and influential people. One of them was the writer Mark Twain, who was very impressed with her. They became friends. Twain introduced her to his friend Henry H. Rogers, a Standard Oil executive. Keller graduated, cum laude, from Radcliffe College in 1904, at the age of 24.  Keller mastered several methods of communication, including touch-lip reading, Braille, speech, typing and finger-spelling. She also went ahead to become a social activist for the disabled after college. Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life, was used as the basis for 1957 television drama, “The Miracle Worker.” Keller died in her sleep on June 1, 1968, just a few weeks before her 88th birthday. 

Lesson 6: The havoc the devil has inflicted upon you is not as important as your resolution to defile all odds. The same havoc if well managed and leveraged always turns out to be a blessing in disguise. This is called the law of equivalent advantage. Life has a way of cooperating with those who don’t give up on their dreams and vision. 

Quote:  With every disappointment, heartbreak, or failure, there exists an equal (usually greater) positive benefit – NapoleonHill.

Prophetic Decree:  The same pain and shame designed to pull you down shall catapault you to greater heights, in Jesus’ name.
