On one fateful day, United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills stepped on an IED and severely injured himself. He was serving his third tour in Afghanistan and knew how dangerous this tour could be. This accident left him with no hands and arms, he became the 5th quadruple amputee of the American Army. Normally these kind of cases end fatally but God had other plans for Travis.
When he woke up and realized that he has no arms and legs and he has to be dependent on other for his entire life, Travis slipped into depression. He told his wife to take whatever they had and leave him. He was feeling worthless and very low on confidence.
What pulled Travis out was his 6 month old daughter. Gradually with the love and support from his wife he started pulling his life together. Opting for a rehab and occupational therapy this soldier showed his mettle by completing the entire course of 3 years to 13 months. He learned to walk, eat and move on his own on prosthetics arms and legs.
His entire approach towards life changed and he is one positive person. His mantra is to think that instead of thinking how worse things can be think how better you can make them.
We have this video of Travis speaking about everything that happened to him and the cause he is working for. The first thing that will strike you is his humorous side, this fellow is making jokes even after going through such a tough time.
Positivity can pull you out even from the worst time and Travis is a living example of the same. We love his guts and the positive approach in life. If we are able to bring even an ounce of this attitude in our lives, it would be simply great.
