“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be” ~ George Sheehan
Today I’m sharing a video of Nick Vujicic, a real example of believing in yourself, and of not giving up. If you do only one thing today, watch this video — take five minutes from your day. You will come away inspired by what is possible, by what can be if you keep on trying, by what truly living life is all about!
Believe In Yourself
Sometimes life has a way of giving us something we don’t necessarily want. And that “something” might knock us down. What do you do when this happens? When you’re knocked down, beat up, and feel like you’ve tried everything?
Keep on trying. You CAN get back up. Maybe it won’t be up in the same direction you were originally going. But then, maybe it will be a new way to of getting up altogether. Who knows what you will discover about yourself and what you are capable of if , when you fail and when you get knocked down in life, you keep working at getting back up.
Amazing abilities are within each of us! If we can just believe in ourselves, even when it seems like things just aren’t going our way. Even when we’ve tried so many times, and keep on failing. Even when life seems unfair.
Even with all of this, you all have awesome talents and treasures within, waiting to come out. Let them free! Let your true colors shine, let your spirit say “I will”, let your life be an example of what is possible!
Believe! In yourself. In others. In hope for our world.
Nick is a shining example of a true belief in himself, and of a real love for life. Be that shining example in your world today!
I want to extend special thanks to a couple of people. First off to my good friend and regular commenter here, Laurie, for pointing me in the direction of this inspiring video. And secondly, to Jamie, from Blue Duck Copy, who shared another video of Nick recently in her post entitled “The Cure for Depression: Nick Vujicic” — one more powerful and inspiring example of Nick in action.
You can learn more about Nick and the amazing work he is doing throughout the world, at his Life Without Limbs website.
