I Am Potential

I Am Potential

Eight Lessons on Living, Loving, and Reaching Your Dreams

Patrick Henry Hughes was born with a rare genetic disorder that left him without eyes and physically disabled. But he was blessed with rare musical talent—able to play the piano as a baby. Today, at age twenty, he is a nationally known pianist, singer, trumpeter, and marching-band member. With determined optimism, Hughes made “I am potential” his mantra, defying his disabilities at every turn.

In I Am Potential, Hughes and his father share their extraordinary journey and describe the eight critical lessons at the heart of their success. Simply and candidly written, I Am Potential is an inspiration for anyone facing their own challenges.

Praise

Blogcritics.org, 8/27/09
“[A] heroic story.”

Blogcritics.org, 8/17/09
“This book is a must read for people with handicapping conditions from birth or from fate. Patrick’s courage and the support given by mother, father, and brothers as he grew older, cannot help but inspire even the most depressed individual to accept a disabling condition and move forward. I Am Potential is fascinating to read…I cannot recommend this book highly enough to the general public who often see people with a handicap as a handicapped person. Patrick has proven the two terms are not equal or even logical.”

Acadiana LifeStyle LA, October 2009
“This story of parental love and a persevering child should lift your spirits and encourage you to discover and pursue your own potential.”

Midwest Book Review, December 2009
“Both a memoir of achievement and an inspirational account perfect for any general library strong in positive 'can-do' guides.”

Alaska Journal of Commerce, 12/13/09
“Any businessperson who needs motivation needs I Am Potential…Not only is this a book that puts things into perspective, but it’s also a darn good story.”
