A boy who was born with an extremely rare autosomal congenital disorder known as Tetra-amelia syndrome, which is characterized by the absence of four limbs, became an author, painter, swimmer, sky-driver, successful entrepreneur and world famous motivational speaker.
His name is Nicholas James Vujicic.
Have you ever wondered, how did this boy turn into a mentally strong adult?
“It’s a lie to think you’re not good enough. It’s a lie to think you’re not worth anything,” says Nick Vujicic.
Whether you know it or not, you are gifted with the power to create, shape and mould your life in ways you probably can’t even imagine.
Remember challenges, hardships, and setbacks are inevitable. Rather than masking your weakness, you should start working on it. Problems will keep haunting you, if you stay unaware of your natural ability. Though you have a heart to endure anything, you often wilt and stop because you are living inside a SHELL.
Yes! Most of us have created a virtual shell around ourselves that blinds us from the truth. It’s a mental, emotional and spiritual prison that may have confined us for all our lives. We keep ourselves small. This does not only build up our ongoing tension and frustration but also keeps us away from the life we really want to live.
The shell may eventually result in all kinds of problems that manifest themselves as financial challenges, physical and mental issues, relationship problems, performance blocks, emotional discomfort and so on.
Do you have Dreams? Do you have Fantasies? It’s time to turn them into reality.
WhatsApp, Facebook posts promise a better future, but is there any truth in it? You should take extra effort to CRACK YOUR SHELL in this digital world.
You are often trying to escape from reality by scrolling through social media, playing games etc, rather than learning from pain. DON’T SHIELD YOURSELF FROM PAIN.
You have to clearly understand that most of the situations in your life are the result of your actions (or inactions).
If you have ever found yourself holding back on something you really wanted to do, you are familiar with SELF-LIMITATION. Most of the self-limitations are easily identified as helpful or harmful. You should learn to decide which you want to keep and which you want to discard.
FEAR and DOUBT will keep reminding you that you don’t have the ability to fly off from a roof and land safely on your own feet. Get the tools to face and conquer them. SPEND SOME TIME IN EXAMINING YOURSELF.
Now, let me share a small story, which I read earlier.
There was a man who made a living by selling balloons at a fair. He had balloons of all colours, including red, yellow, blue and green. Whenever business was slow, he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they all wanted to buy one. They would come up to him, buy a balloon, and his sales would go up again. He continued this process all day. One day, he felt someone tugging at his jacket. He turned around and saw a little boy who asked, “If you release a black balloon, would that also fly?”
Moved by the boy’s concern, the man replied with empathy, “Son, it is not the colour of the balloon, it is what inside that makes it go up.”
The same thing applies to our lives. Our inner strength makes us go up. The stronger and more powerful you feel, the more you’ll be able to handle and control your actions. (Again, this is only after you begin to notice some real momentum from your smaller initial efforts.)
Strive to improve upon your Mental Health, Block Your Fears, Grow Strong, Think Realistically, Act Courageous, Feel Confident, and Embrace Change.
I wish to develop a new sense of purpose and generate new ideas about yourself and your future.
The secret of this article “CRACK YOUR SHELL” is based on the law of attraction, the belief that “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”. Positive thoughts lead to positive reality. Negative thoughts lead to negative reality.
“By Changing Your Thinking, You Would Change Your Life!”
So are you ready to “Crack Your Shell?”
Join me on this journey. Together let’s Create Future!
