Is Your Thinking Disabled? – OHS046

“Disability usually refers to something physical. But in this dynamic and inspirational talk, AlejAndro Anastasio makes a case that nothing is more debilitating than disabled thinking. And who better to speak on disabilities than the one-armed, 3rd Degree Black Belt, self-proclaimed, ‘Champion of Life,’ himself? By changing “disabled thinking” he has transformed his life for the better and helped others to do the same.”

(The first paragraph is the TEDxBoise program description for my talk.)

The opportunity to deliver a TEDx Talk was such a great experience. I was able to express my “Idea Worth Sharing”  on a internally global stage. What I wanted to share with people was the idea of “Disabled Thinking.” This was a concept that came out of a discussion I had with my Buddhist Teacher, Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. We were talking about what it really meant to have a disability. “Is disability in the mind or is it in the body? It was through many conversations and discussions the idea of “Disabled Thinking” unfolded. When I had the chance to share an idea on the TEDx platform, disabled thinking was the title. 

Thanks for listening! I invite you to share this podcast, offer a comment or leave some feedback.
