"If I can meet my beautiful wife, have 2 children and be massively successful after being burned over 85% what can you do?"...
I couldn't help it, so I had to do a little research on the man called " PAUL V HARRIS"..
He was definitely burned.
He has a scared face, undergone a lot of surgery after a horrific automobile accident, which resulted in a prolonged stay at the hospital, and he was pronounced dead 3 times, while he was at the hospital.
He has been able to create his own good luck. Not only that he has also been able to motivate people, teaching them that fear is only a limitation. He says if I can do it you can TOO. He is an international coach, who is highly sought after. He has been a speaker for 17 years...
He kinda reminds me of our very own Cobhams Asuquo.. The last time I heard him speak, he said that his blindness was his legal right to take a bowl and stand by the road demanding for money, but he didn't do it cos he wanted something better in life.. So he used his disabilities for his own good. Today he is married, sings beautifully, a good sought after music producer. Instead of wallowing in self pity, he rose up from it and overcame the odds.
If people with disabilities can be able to use their disabilities for their own good, and make an impact in society: then what excuse do I have for not following my dream and making an impact on this earth?
I will like us to think about our lives.. What is it we would like to do?
is it to be a better colleague?
a better wife/husband?
a better parent
a good friend
the best entrepreneur ever
to take care of lost children?
to love God more?etc
Whatever it is, trust me you can do it.
Quotes from Paul V Harris: " Don't let anyone tell you what your limitations are"...
Note: for me I have decided to start my 4Th novel.. I have the story line already mapped out. Along the line I will definitely ask you guys for some advise and I know it will be worth it.
Do take care and have a lovely day.
