* Frank Williams, paralysed, and hugely successful, UsefulNotes/FormulaOne team owner. Rival team owners credited much of his team's increased success after requiring a wheelchair due to a car crash in 1986 to the fact that he had to take a more hands-off role with his team and could only ''think'' his way to success.

* US President UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt. Used a wheelchair because of an illness [[note]]either polio or Guillain-Barré syndrome, there's some debate as to which[[/note]], he still managed to become one of the greatest presidents America ever had.

* Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, The Emperor Claudius, became Emperor by surviving, faking [[ObfuscatingInsanity mental illness]] and [[ObfuscatingStupidity idiocy]], and suffered lameness in his legs (as well as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudius#Claudius.27_affliction_and_personality other physical deformities]]). Considered now a pretty good Emperor, and a great builder.
