Jose Feliciano, the world famous guitarist, singer and songwriter is a Puerto Rican who was born poor and blind. His condition was so pathetic to the point that his neighbours suggested that he go begging arms like every other blind person in his community will do. But Jose blatantly refused!
At the age of 9, his father’s friend got him an old piece of guitar and so he taught himself how to play. Day after day, night after night, he practised playing the guitar until his fingers bled. Today, Jose Feliciano is considered one of the world greatest guitarist of all time. He’s travelled 80 countries, won 9 Grammy awards, has 16 nominations and in the latin hall of fame. He wrote an all-time best-selling single called ‘Feliz Navidad’ sung arguably around the world every Christmas celebration.
“You can be whatever you want and go wherever you want, only if you think you can.” – Sonnie Amadi
Jose Feliciano by his achievements has proven that there’s ability in every disability despite his lack of eyesight and impoverished background. Do you think that your options in life have been grossly limited by your disability? Then, think again. No disability is powerful enough to keep you from achieving your destined greatness. Greatness as a matter of fact is located in your DNA, not in your disability.
