September 19th Finding Ultimate Vision through Sight Loss

“Our accomplishments are not measured by our abilities or disabilities but rather by our willingness to try!”  This quote has anchored Clark Roberts in his life as he has journeyed through sight loss and emotional acuity.  He is the founder of the non-profit, Ultimate Vision, that inspires people of all ages who have endured a significant loss of sight to see in new ways.  Ultimate Vision continues to bring quality comprehensive programs to students in the following areas: Social & Emotional Learning (SEL), Diversity Awareness, Anti-Bullying, Virtues and other amazing programs customized to fit the needs of your students.

At age 24, Clark lost his sight to Retinitis Pigmentosa. This journey has allowed him to learn how one truly embraces life, a message of hope and encouragement that he shares with CEO’s and young students as well as elders in the community.  He shows each person how to reach beyond their limitations inspiring them to live a life of significance. Clark has learned to celebrate differences, live his life to the fullest, and inspire others to do the same.

The 4 Questions with Grace Bell

Grace Bell first encountered a need to heal from very painful thinking when still a teenager. This started a journey of self-discovery, seeking, riding a roller-coaster of emotions and thoughts, and studying.  She discovered the beauty of the 12 Steps and the power of sharing the road with others.  Later, she learned Transcendental Meditation in 1992 in a beginners class and went on to complete her master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University.  In 2008 Grace graduated from both the Certification Program for The Work of Byron Katie with The Institute for The Work after many hours of training and attendance over three years, and Accomplishment Coaching, a one-year Life Coach Certification program.  She has worked with people from all over the world including Japan, Australia, Tasmania, England, Holland, Spain, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Namibia, South Africa, Lebanon, Canada, Egypt, Ireland, Peru, Mexico, China, and the United States.  She has appeared on radio programs such as,  “The Secrets of Dating and Relationship Success” produced by Sharon Marks, “The Great Parenting Radio Show” with Jacqueline Green in Toronto, Canada and “Intuition To Income” with Abby Gooch.  With humor, gentleness, acceptance and sincerity, Grace has helped thousands of people (and most importantly, her own mind) to discover freedom, peace and joy by encouraging them to clearly identify their most painful beliefs and then asking them questions to transcend such beliefs.  Enjoy her inspiring blog at:
