Born with what most folks would call "handicaps," - no arms, badly “compromised” legs, he refused to quit!! Jeff is living proof that, “…the difficult we do right away, the impossible takes a little longer!” A true overcomer, he continues to accomplish the very things his family & friends insisted, "…he couldn't do, shouldn't do or wouldn't do."
As a young boy Jeff, learned the truth that would become the foundation of his life: "I am fearfully and wonderfully made...” Jeff Steinberg is a Masterpiece In Progress, and he wants YOU to know it! He sees his disabilities as assets, not liabilities.For more than 45 years, he has traveled the globe with a most unique challenge, "Quit focusing on the handicap and start appreciating The Gift!" His presentation is fun, up close & personal and inspirational.
SPEAKING TOPICS INCLUDE:
“All That I Can Be…” – A major key to achieving personal goals lies in the discovery of the “unique design” that is “ME” – positives and negatives, strengths and weaknesses, abilities and “disabilities” – then shaping my future to take full advantage of that design. Recognizing, acknowledging and ultimately embracing, “all that I am” provides the foundation for me to become “all that I can be.” The acceptance and application of these principles will promote achievement commensurate with ability, regardless of the task.
“How Handicapped Am I??” – Everyone has limitations. The danger of self-actualization lies in accepting those limitations as “handicaps”. By redefining the word “handicap” as “anything which keeps me from being or becoming all that I was created to be,” and replace the myths we accept about our apparent limitations with a realistic understanding of what truly prevents success provides a vehicle to personal and professional fulfillment.
"Leadership and success in business, as it is in life begins by knowing ourselves, rising above our perceived limitations and accepting the challenge to positively impact our world.”
“The least likely person can accomplish the most extraordinary things in a most unusual way!”
