When the world tells you “no”, you have two options: You can roll over and quit — or you can trust your power. Derrick Coleman, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, trusted the power within.

Although he’s deaf, he never let adversity stand in his way, on his road to the NFL.

I don’t like the Seahawks because I’m a 49er fan I don’t care about a sorry
quarterback Wilson or lynch honestly should have played better on bills and
I feel bad for them to and Percy harvin and Vikings you ever think about
that so just because he does one thing ok I’m true to my team Coleman is
sad story he’s got guts you do not so shut up and don’t talk to me like I’m
a bad person so I can like one person on a team so talk me down

Derrick = Inspiration!
I am a professional silent comedy performer. I perform around the world and
periodically on TV. 10 years ago I got diagnosed with a muscle/nerve
disorder which has paralyzed parts of my body. I had to stop performing and
lost every cent I had. I fought my way back, nearly dying several times and
now despite being mostly paralyzed, when I perform most people cannot even
tell that I have a disability. Derrick, your example has touched and
inspired me. Continue to shine!

I usually don’t like commercials taking advantage of feelings like that,
but this is damn inspiring.

Kicked our asses but didn’t know he had this problem. Kudos to you keep on
your grind.

Kateryna Aheyeva says:

‘They told me it could not be done…they gave up on me…they told me it
was over…but I have been deaf since I was three so I didn’t listen…’
Very powerful story told by a very inspiration NFL player Derrick Coleman.
He proves it to all that the only thing that holds us back from achieving
our goals is our fears. Great ad by Duracell.

If this isnt the most inspiring thing you’ve seen, you have a problem…
and you need to start fixing it today.

This is a deep video. To me, the best yet on YouTube! “been deaf since i
was three, so i didn’t listen”…..that’s a powerful quote. Shiiid, can’t
NOBODY stop you!
