It is often hard to know one's true self, and this problem can sometimes lead to doubts and mistakes in life. Motivational stories can sometimes inspire others to search themselves – which Ilchi Lee says is the key to becoming a better person.
"To know the brain is to know oneself, and to understand the essence of life," Lee tells his supporters. "Without knowledge of your brain, you cannot truly know yourself or your life."
Some people who have endured additional hardships can acquire knowledge at an early age and use it to break through barriers in their daily lives. Such is the case of 17-year-old Marisa Mccray, who lost the use of her legs in a sledding accident when she was 11, according to NBC affiliate WLBZ 2.
While this has restricted Mccray's ability to do many things, driving – as of last week – is no longer one of them. The teen got her learner's permit after taking a written test and using specialized machinery to operate the vehicle. After another 35 hours of driving experience, she will be eligible for her license.
Mcray told the news provider that the first place she wants to go when she earns her driving certificate is the mall.
