Thanks for the wonderful moment! It's so easy when we are into ouselves and feeling "sorry" to forget the blessings we have. Yes ... this made me cry and it was wonderful to experience the emotion. Here is somene who has a real "problem" and he's living life and grateful for the ability to do that! God Bless Him! And God bless You for sharing this great information!
I don't think I am too different than many folks when I state that 2008 was a monumentally tough year. It was hard on me emotionally on both business and personal levels and most of my clients, friends and family members have expressed the same.
Having spent much time picking myself back up after repetitive knock downs, I can find myself losing the energy to get up. It is easy to get wrapped up in one's own personal crisis du jour and to forget that everyone has problems and many of them are far more impacting than your own.
This story is about a person who has a problem more significant than anything I can imagine, but he didn't stay down. He never gives up and in fact, he goes forth and tells everyone that they shouldn't allow themselves that failure either.
I have never met this man, in fact, until I was sent a link to his video by my manager at Park Square Realty, Westfield, MA I had never even heard of him: his name is Nick Vujicic, he is a 25 year old man who was born without limbs. His calling is to travel the world to inspire people to overcome challenges. His website, whether you are of religious mind or not, is more than inspiring.
This video was sent to me by my office manager. I watched it today several times in awe as this young man works to inspire others when it would have been so much easier to give up. He won't give up and he is showing me that I am not willing to, either. I hope you find some inspiration here, as well.
