Why Big Dreams Matter

"Everything is incredible and people don't accept it."

No one has the right to tell anyone else that what they're doing is unimportant.

If it matters to you, then do it.

Stay with it.

Never give up.

Meet Agustin, from Siguatepeque, Honduras.

Ravaged by childhood polio.

Confined to a wheelchair.

Lived his entire life in poverty.

Worked as a shoemaker.

He decided to build a helicopter using pieces of scrap metal collected at the dump.

And pieces from his new wheelchair, sent from the U.S.

He began in 1958.


When you are tempted to give up, think about Agustin.
