The Only Disability in Life is a BAD Attitude

By  |  225 Comments

I came across this video today. A good friend forwarded me the link. It had over 200,000 likes on youtube and rightfully so.


My little sister, Maddy, has cerebral palsy, a mild form of it, but none the less something she has had to deal with her entire life. She’s had countless surgeries, weekly therapy sessions, she’s gone through more than any 14 year old should have to go through. But what has impressed me most, is she never ACTS like she has cerebral palsy. She doesn’t ask anyone to feel sorry for her or give her any special attention. She has one of the best attitudes towards life I’ve ever seen, and she inspires me every day. So when I watch Matthew Jeffers tell his story, I can’t help but be reminded of Maddy. His message is so true, the only disability in life is a bad attitude…I think we can all learn a little something from Matthew and Maddy.

Matthew Jeffers is known as the man who motivated the Baltimore Ravens to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Matthew Jeffers is an actor and speaker who lives in Baltimore, Maryland. He graduated in May with a B.S in Theatre. His hopes and dreams of playing in the NBA came to a crashing halt as a teenager when he realized he would never be any taller than 4’2”.

Matthew did not have a typical childhood. He was born with Skeletal Dysplasia, he has endured over 21 surgeries, some small, others life-threatening. He has had a tracheotomy, blood transfusions, spent summers in a hip spica cast, and had to learn how to walk again. Through it all, he has always had and remains having an incredible positive attitude. In 2013 Matthew gained national attention when he & his story inspired the Baltimore Ravens, who ended up winning the 2013 Super Bowl.
