Inspiration

Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

The Directors of AIM, Andy Reid and Stephen Cruise, never decided they were inspirational people, nor have they decided to tag this word to their titles. They have just decided that life after amputation was going to be the beginning of something new. They both knew that their previous careers where over, due to massive traumas. Life ahead was to be a new beginning, not an end to their lives. Setting new challenges and setting small goals to finally achieve the overall challenge is the way to self-motivate. Small goals are not as daunting and the end is always in sight. Never giving up, never taking no for an answer and believing in yourself is truly INSPIRATIONAL.

People at AIM share their stories not only with each other but with schools, businesses and communities. These stories offer inspiration to others about not only overcoming amputation but also about overcoming personal challenges in life.
