No Is Never the Answer... : The Lift | Brian@GrowthWorks

No Is Never the Answer...

by Brian McDermott on 11/27/13

What's possible? What's impossible? This story will make you rethink your answers...

Richie Parker's story begins with being born with no arms, and his parents quickly committing to him having as normal a life as possible. This 8-minute ESPN-produced video picks up the story with his work as an engineer with the most successful team in NASCAR.

Where is his story headed? He says, "I can't say there is anything that I can't do. I don't know that there's a whole lot in life period that I can't do. Just things I haven't done yet."

I love this portrait of a rebel. Early in the clip his refusal to listen to the nay-sayers is inspiring.

In the context of such an awe inspiring personality as is illustrated in this video, "no is not the answer", but sometimes no is a strategic response that should not be over used.
