LIFE GOES ON
See the enthusiasm, confidence and tenacity on his face? Can we ever be distressed, impatient or complaining for frivolous reasons after witnessing this?
Peng Shu Lin survived against all the odds; now he has astounded doctors by learning to walk again.
While his body was cut in two by a lorry in 1995, it was little short of a medical miracle that he lived. It took a group of more than 20 doctors to save his life. Skin was grafted from his head to seal his torso? However the legless Mr Peng was left only 78cm ( 2ft 6in ) tall.
Mission, vision, vocation, calling, destiny, bliss, passion, meaning. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe our human need to identify and express our purpose. But are these words all really talking about the same thing?
A mission statement is common in a business. Your company probably has one. It describes what the company does. You might have a personal mission statement. It would describe what you do. For example, your mission might be to design systems that save time and money. But that is not your life’s purpose. Purpose is bigger than that.
Let Fear be a catalyst for your growth!
Fear is not your enemy! If you befriend fear, it can be an asset to you. A tremendous amount of energy is associated with fear. You have undoubtedly heard stories of people who showed superhuman strength when they were faced with fear.
In research studies, students who felt some fear about taking a test did better than students who felt no fear. Your goal is not to eliminate fear, but to harness it.
