The speaker is very curious about many aspects of his life, he has the ability to create new concepts and ideas in order to achieve his goals and overcome obstacles, and uses his imagination to make those thoughts possible, create new helpful ways to make his life easier and do not allow his condition to be an impediment to succeed in life and make his dreams come true.
Personal experience and benefits in society: To be honest, I was completely amazed with Sam Berns, due to the fact that regardless of his condition he has never doubt himself and he believes that the most important thing about him is that he has a very happy life because he is grateful for what he has, and the word impossible does not exist in his vocabulary.

Conclusion
Using creativity, imagination and curiosity could lead us to make important changes in our lives just by having an idea and creating new ways to get what we want and be where we want to be.
