Finding New Roads While Redefining Yourself with Stefanie Schaffer (Episode #28)

Our thought leader of the day is Stefanie Schaffer, an inspiring human being who managed to find new roads in her life after a fatal accident. The accident left her with broken bones, internal bleeding, and damaged legs that needed to be amputated.

Stefanie admitted that she was angry at first for what happened to her and viewed herself as a failure. What made her realize that failures could be opportunities was the kindness shown by all the people who’ve helped her stand up again. Stefanie later learned that this accident had enabled her to redefine herself, all while taking on new paths and uplifting everyone else around her.
