Born In Darkness

We can learn and have benefits from failure and success but either both can destroy us. Our failure can force us to give up and by success we can lost our hunger. The key is to always set new goals and pursuit them.


Born In Darkness was inspired by Gregg Plitt speech “Own Your Success”.


BORN IN DARKNESS – Motivational Video

“Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.”

Madeleine L’Engle


In this video I mostly I wanted to show story of Derrick Coleman. Although he’s deaf, he never let adversity stand in his way and he became the first deaf offensive player in the NFL.


They told me it couldn’t be done. That I was a lost cause. I was picked on and picked last.
Coaches didn’t know how to talk to me, they gave up on me, told me I should quit.
“And the last pick is…”
They didn’t call my name. Told me it was over.
But I’ve been deaf since I was three, so I didn’t listen.
And now I’m here, with the loudest fans in the NFL cheering me on, and I can hear them all.

– Derrick Coleman
