Aimee Mullins & Jessica Cox

Aimee Mullins & Jessica Cox

Here is a couple of more people I want to bring to your attention. Their names are: Aimee Mullins and Jessica Cox.

The reason why I want to write about them is simply because these ladies are real fighters. They never settle nor do they give up on their dreams.

Like in the previous video where I talked about Nick Vujicic who has no arms no legs, Aimee Mullins has no legs and Jessica Cox has no arms. Yet Aimee is a runner, Olympics game veteran, World’s record holder, model and actress. Whereas, Jessica Cox, who has no arms, is a motivational speaker, black belt martial artist who also learned to fly an airplane. Wow!

Against all odds, the girls don’t see themselves as the victims of the ‘events’ or circumstances but rather pull themselves out of this as the winners. They do things many of us don’t dare to.

Why Is That So? What Drives These Young Ladies To Overcome Any Obstacle On Their Ways? Continue reading »

Nick on the stage

Nick on the stage

The following story I want to talk about has blown my mind away. When you watch the video below it will be hard for you to stop the tears. And I seriously meant it.

His name is Nick Vujicic. No arms, no legs is what can describe this young man from the first sight. But when look closer into his story you will understand that Nick is a living example of the people who possess the strong attitudes a human being can be blessed with.

Hopeless, alone, pointless to live is what it used to feel for Nick when struggling through his life. There was no point to do anything like going to school, not to mention going to the university. Continue reading »

Motivate yourself

Motivate yourself

The ability to self-motivate has always been important to me. I know well in my heart that if I don’t achieve results I want the only reason lies in me. How I think reflects the way how I make, if any, accomplishments.

We all go through hardships in all aspects of our lives. This being said, it is not what we go through it is how we react and act upon them. Many, to great sadness, would just walk around and about a life and how bad the conditions or circumstances are. All kinds of excuses are made up. The only way out seems to be finding a “scapegoat” and continue this pathetic routine of wining. Reasons are a misnomer. Continue reading »

Be productive. Be efficient.

Be productive. Be efficient.

Have you noticed whenever you need to concentrate on something you regard important, often times you get distracted by small things, problems, challenges and so on (also described as No.7 in this post on the 11 Productivity tips). This surely prevents you from getting it done according to the timeframe you planned. For example, when I was writing my thesis I would often find myself doing dishes, cleaning the apartment, watching TV or surfing on the Net … or anything that the other part of my brain would say (lie) is also good/necessary  to do right now.
