"Take a breath and focus on what is important right now. Don't get too far ahead and miss what you need to do now."
This advice comes from Chris Norton. You've likely "met" him through the viral video of him walking across the stage at his graduation.
Why was this so meaningful?
Chris was paralyzed while playing NCAA football. Accomplishing this walk became his biggest goal. His walk, story and determination will give you amazing insight to live more inspired today.
