Everyday Legend - Recovering From Losing All His Limbs
by James Mills, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
“I have always been very level headed and cool, calm, and collected in high stress situations. I believe this attribute has helped me immensely throughout my injury and recovery process.
From day one of my injury, I have been able to accept the position I was currently in, and then think about how I could improve it. I knew my recovery would have to be executed with small goals along the way.
I used my hard work ethic that was instilled in me as a child, to push forward and achieve these small goals one-by-one. I have never been one to accept defeat. This is just another example of understanding the road was going to be tough, exhausting, and troublesome but also knowing that I was responsible for my own destiny.”
- Taylor Morris
It is easy to take life for granted and to feel despondent when we encounter challenges in our day-to-day lives at home or at work. The video below shows Taylor Morris' inspiring and humbling journey to recovery, after losing all four limbs serving in Afghanistan in 2012.
In a recent interview, Taylor said,
“Now that I am here in this situation, I am totally adjusting focus to make life better for an amputee. Because I have a first hand look at how many problems still need to be solved - I believe I could have a big impact in this community for the greater good.”
Taylor’s example teaches us all about the power of choice in the face of utmost adversity. He had the incredible attitude ofworking with the reality of a very negative situation and making the best of it, rather than wishing it away. Through acceptance, raw persistence and a deep appreciation for life he has already inspired millions across the globe.
