Tuesdays snippets of Inspiration

There are some people I have seen on YouTube over the years that have brought me to tears. They are incredibly inspirational and can be great sources of motivation to be grateful for our own lives. Do you ever think I am so lucky I can see, hear, feel, taste, touch. The simple pleasures we experience in life some people do not have such fortune. I encourage you today to look these people up, even if just to remind you how fortunate you are;

1. Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Australia with the rare Tetra-amelia disorder: limbless, missing both arms at shoulder level, and having one small foot with two toes protruding from his left thigh. Despite the absence of limbs, he is doing surf and swimming, and playing golf and soccer. He went college and completed an a Accounting and Business degree and  He began his travels as a motivational speaker, focusing on teenagers and problems in their lives. Check him out on youtube he is incredible.

2. Jessica Cox suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms. She went to college and completed a psychology degree. She can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. Ms Cox, from Tuscon, Arizona, USA, is also a former dancer and double black belt in Tai Kwon-Do. She has a no-restrictions driving license and she was the first to fly a plane with no arms.

3. Randolph Frederick "Randy" Pausch died in July 2008. He was an American professor of computer science and human-computer interaction and design. Pausch learned that he had pancreatic cancer, a terminal illness, in September of 2006. He gave an upbeat lecture entitled "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" on September 18, 2007 which became a popular YouTube video. Check his video out today. In his famous speech, Pausch showed a list of his childhood dreams, and explained how he achieved each of them. 

These are just three people, some of whom defied odds of life, they took their power back and used their dreams as inspiration and the cards they had been dealt to help others.
We all have a purpose, we can all heal and then use this to help heal others.
Be the best you you can be, you too can be that inspiration.
