Dare to do it! Dive in, take risks and be bold.
The movie depicts very well Ben Carson’s tenacity in the beginning of his career. He took risks. He wasn’t afraid of failing, especially when faced with a complicated and risky surgery.
You should never diminish yourselves simply because of the fact that they come from a one-parent home, or a poor and uneducated family. The devil uses that to belittle you before society and the world.
Another strong point we can extract from the movie is the support Ben Carson's mother gave him. She supported him big time, in spite of not having any education herself.
She invested in her son’s future by pushing him to go further, always telling him he wasn’t dumb or stupid but intelligent and smart. I've seen many youths ignoring their parents advice. They think their parents are picky, annoying or even too radical because of their constant demands on studies and so on, not realizing that all they want is their well-being.
On the other hand there are those who are unfortunate and don’t get the necessary encouragement from their own parents. If you are included in this group I say you to you: don't look at what you don't have but at what you have, which is faith and God. He will always back you up, no matter what.
You have qualities, skills, talents that no other person has. Do not settle down. You can always pursue greater things.
So, remember, BE AUDACIOUS.
