I wouldn't call this inspiring, as this fellow is probably a genius. He was likely born with certain talents that allowed him to accomplish what he accomplished. Similarly, I wouldn't call Shaq's 7'+ frame, and ~300 lbs that allowed him to dominate the NBA inspiring. Being born a certain way isn't inspiring at all. It's random luck. Being born without obvious advantages, and overcoming deficits to accomplish something noteworthy by shear stubbornness and grit is inspiring. Maybe Mr. Dean did that. This article doesn't tell us, though.
