Temple Grandin was born August 29, 1947. She was diagnosed with Autism in 1950 and went on to become a Doctor of Animal Science and professor at Colorado State University, bestselling author, and known for her work in autism advocacy.
Temple was pushed by her Mother, who refused to believe in her daughter's perceived limitations, out of her comfort zone and paint the pictures of opportunity that were available to her. Even though Temple was terrified, she continued to walk through what she describes as “Doors of Opportunity”. Each time Temple walked through a new door a new opportunity would present itself.
3 major lessons from Temple Grandin:
- Opportunities come to those who are prepared to receive those opportunities
- Fear holds us back from achieving our full potential
- Step out of your comfort zone! Great things await you.
