Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time, developed symptoms of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) at the age of 21. Just as his career was beginning to take off, his body began to fail him. If anyone knows about dealing with unfortunate circumstances in life, it’s probably him.

Though the illness crippled his body, Hawking’s sharp mind did not allow him to wallow in negativity. In fact, he dedicated himself to the field of theoretical physics with even more ardor.

Although doctors gave him roughly two to three years to live, Hawking chose to make the best of his situation and is now recognized worldwide for the answers he has unearthed concerning the universe, the Big Bang, creation and scientific theories, as Power of Positivity relays.

Of course, Hawking did endure bad times coping with his condition, but he knows that there is much to be grateful for in this life. He shared as much at a recent lecture which took place at the Royal Institute in London.

Bound to a wheelchair, Hawking cannot speak or move. However, he has found a way to communicate through technology, and compared black holes to depression, making it clear that neither are impossible to escape.

He said:

“The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up; there’s a way out.

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. If you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
