Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. He admits to us there were plenty of times when all he wanted to do was give up. Nick didn’t understand the point to his life and therefore wanted to end it. Thank goodness he’s alive because he’s shared his story with millions of people around the world, inspiring them to keep on going.
Just the other day, someone forwarded me an article about this young woman venting because everybody is a workaholic at her office. She tells us how incredibly amazing it is that she gets in at 8am and works until 6:30pm everyday. In other words, she’s asking for praise and sympathy for working normal hours. The kicker? She was unemployed for over half a year and just started this job!
Whenever I feel like complaining about how unfair life is, I stop and think about people like Nick who have it just a little bit harder. Is he complaining? No. He is trying harder, and so shall I. Perhaps so shall we all! Let’s eradicate the sense of entitlement that lingers among everyone of us; some more than others. We shall not whine about our jobs or complain why our love lives crumble. Let’s take ownership of our own actions. If you are a complainer, please go somewhere else!
Readers, who inspires you to keep on going?
