Thanks for all the support and messages from all of you. Don’t worry, I’m safe and sound (just a lil tie-up with works). Well, lots of things happened and a lot of unexpected things turn-up, but really… it’s no worry.
I would like to share something interesting that Jeff @yong actually shared with me and I’m thankful for your sharing because it is really inspiring. Why inspiring and not motivational? Coz “Motivation gets you through the day, but Inspiration lasts a lifetime”. This is what he says and I’m with him all the way. Who is he? He is Nick Vujicic.
For those who have heard who Nick is, I do not need much introduction but for those who have not heard of him, well he is an Australian born in 1982 with the rare Tetra-amelia disorder – missing of four limbs (no hand and leg)… but Nick has one small foot with two toes protruding from his left thigh, to which he says it looks like a chicken drumstick.
This makes my tears start rolling:
His disability does not prevent him to do what a normal person can. He can walk, swim, drive and even surf. He is able to take care of all his well-being irregardless of his condition.
By the age of 19 Nick started to fulfil his dream of being able to encourage other people and bring them hope, through motivational speaking and telling his story. “I found the purpose of my existence, and also the purpose of my circumstance… There’s a purpose for why you’re in the fire.” Nick wholeheartedly believes that there is a purpose in each of the struggles we encounter in our lives and that our attitude towards those struggles that can be the single most effective factor in overcoming them.
Now, Nick even own his own motivational speaking company; Attitude Is Altitude. Since his first motivational speaking engagement back when he was 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions of people, speaking to a range of different groups such as students, teachers, youth, business men and women, entrepreneurs, and church congregations of all sizes. He has also told his story and been interviewed on various televised programs worldwide. However, Nick’s speaking engagements have gone beyond purely motivational speaking, he has had the opportunity to speak with several leaders, including the vice president of Kenya. This year alone Nick is set to speak in over 20 countries.
His talk is really inspirational. You can see how he puts in his life experience into his talk. Sharing with others jokes using his own condition and always smiling.
Watching his humorous approach, brings both smile and tears to me… It’s so inspirational.
His new DVD – NO LEGS, NO ARMS, NO WORRIES!, also inspire me a lot. It’s really No Worries at all in life. We should really celebrate our life right.
Thanks so much to Nick and Jeff @yong for sharing… =)
