Find ability in your disability. Create what you can and work on making things better. I feel that a positive mind and outlook is the most essential thing.

Wondering how to stay confident and positive as a wheelchair user? Check out these tips.
Accept your disability– There are many people who became disabled later on in their lives due to certain illnesses or even accidents. For them, an unexpected disability in their lives can be harder to cope up with. But understand that unless you accept your disability, you cannot be confident. There might be many people around you who talks only negative things. But you are in complete charge of your life.
Be yourself– Do not worry about what the world tells you. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot do things. Unleash your inner self and enjoy every minute of your days. This is the key to staying positive and confident always.
Try out new things– Love arts, sports or crafts? Find out your interests and build on it. When you have an activity to engage in, you will never get bored. At the same time, you can learn new things what interests you.
Go outdoors and explore– Most of the times, moving around is not easy for a wheelchair user. This is because most of the public places in India and even across the world are not fully accessible. But being a wheelchair user, do not miss out on any opportunity to step outdoors. Love travelling? Do not hesitate. Do a research on the most accessible places and explore the world.
