2008 Quought for the Day #3 – Stephen Hopson


This is part of the Quought for the Day – 2008 Series.

Quought = Question that provokes thought!

The question I asked thought leaders and my very smart friends is:

What is ONE question that you wish someone had asked you when you were young? And, Why?

I will be posting answers (which will be Quoughts) one by one.This one is from Stephen Hopson

Stephen is a former award-winning Wall Street stockbroker turned motivational speaker, popular blogger, author and the first deaf pilot in the history of aviation to earn an instrument rating.   His speciality as a speaker is teaching people how to turn adversity into success and achieve the impossible.

Stephen’s Quought

“Why do you think you were born deaf?”

The reason for Stephen’s choice of that Quought

The reason why I wish I was asked this question is because it would have helped me understand at a very early age that we are all born the way we are for a spiritual and divine reason.  Being asked that question would have led me to realize what my purpose was at an early age. It might have led me to accept my hearing disability at a much earlier age.
