A Surfer, a Shark and a Story of Survival

Jan 01, 1970 / Inspirational     

Bethany Hamilton dreamed of being a professional surfer, but at 13, she lost her arm in a shark attack. You'd think that would be the end of her career plans, but that's not the case. The new movie, Soul Surfer, will show you three things that Bethany did to realize her dreams. You can do them, too. First, put the pain aside. Before you can do anything about your circumstances, you have to be able to move past the initial hurt. Second, get to the beach. Just focus on what's straight ahead, reach one goal at a time. Third, get back up on your board and surf again. Be persistent.
