Ten to Go: Success is only the start
Success isn’t final. It’s measured by your ongoing dedication and determination to overcome adversity. In order to truly succeed, you must dare to fail. Edward Elinburg embodies this concept daily.
On Jan. 22, 2011, Eddie was involved in a horrible hit-and-run accident. He was told he had very little chance of walking again in the near future. But Eddie was fitted for prosthetics only four months later. Since that April, Eddie has been working with professional trainers and has completed two charity walks with little to no assistance.
It hasn’t been easy, and he still battles fears about not being able to walk again. But he overcomes those fears through aspirations. Some of his goals are scuba diving, rock climbing and kayaking.
Eddie has become an ambassador for health and wellness, and these days he enjoys yoga to relax. As he says, “Success is only the beginning. Why stop there?”
