Talk: Eyes Wide Open

Isaac Lidsky began losing his eyesight at the age of thirteen, eventually losing his sight entirely by the time he was twenty-five. He thought blindness would mean an end to his early success and his hopes for the future. Paradoxically, losing his sight gave him the vision to take responsibility for his reality and thrive. Now in his new release EYES WIDE OPEN, Lidsky explains the powerful insight that inspired him to pursue his most ambitious dreams despite losing his sight to a blinding disease: it isn’t external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality.
