How to Turn Mental Health on Its Head

Did you ever think that maybe all those so-called normal folks aren't so normal? And maybe being proud of who you are has a much greater payoff than trying to fit in?

Today is the 31thst anniversary of the signing of the ADA. It's time to pivot again and think differently about invisible disabilities.

July is also National Disability Pride Month, a chance to amplify each others' success. (FYI This USA Today story does a good job of showing what NDP Month is all about and it's much more exciting than its title).

BOTTOM LINE Don't let anything hold you back, especially at work. Start standing prouder when someone questions how you problem solve, speak or spend time at your desk. You don't get to the Olympics—or any dream job—by aiming to be average.
