Life Without Limits

Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic

If you are not a reader, and if you were told you have to read just ONE book, this would be THE BOOK.

Just the video inspires you, and yet humbles you.

Nick Vujicic was born without arms and legs. His family, especially his parents, loved him unconditionally. The book is his story, how he had to deal with his disabilities emotionally and physically growing up. It is brutally honest, and you can feel his despair. But as the book progresses, you see this extraordinary man embrace God, have faith in God’s plan for him, and how he transforms his life into living happily and independently. There are some funny moments in the book which simply bring tears to your eyes (my favorite moment was when he stuffed himself into the baggage carrier on top of the airline seats as a prank!)

Here we are, with hands and legs, and we grumble through life. There are days nothing anyone does or anything around us makes us happy. We forget how blessed we are. We forget how it is up to us to make a choice to be happy – no matter what!

“To wish for change will change nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will change everything!”

His book offers practical day to day advice for building a life of fulfillment and happiness by accepting what you cannot change, and embracing what you can change. And that’s what Nick did. Instead of letting his disability bring him down, he embraced it, and went on to conquer one goal after another – learning how to swim to learning how to surf! Yes surf! Now that’s incredible.

I remember reading his chapter on learning how to swim and thought to myself – dammit Leena you are scared to swim why?? And I ended up enrolling into classes to learn how to swim. I figured if he can do it, so can I! Screw living in fear! 🙂

Go ahead and invest in this book. I promise you – you will start to live your life with happiness once you realize that it is your imperfections that make you the Unique You that you truly are!

“I found happiness when I realized that as imperfect as I may be, I am the perfect Nick Vujicic. I am God’s creation, designed according to his perfect plan for me.”

How do you want to be remembered?

How do you want to be remembered when you decide to leave this Earth?

Everyone will be remembered. Each and every person usually is. There is always a person connected to the departed that will carry on some memory.

If that is the case, then how do you want your story to go? Do you want your story to be about what you achieved in life or in your job? Is it about your accomplishments on a project or what you did for your kids? Is it about how much joy you brought to people around you, how you inspired them or is it about how negatively you made other people feel?

Whatever has happened till date, has happened. I have come to believe that each and every day, every minute, you have the Power to Choose how to live your life. You have the Power to choose which emotions will you let go of and which ones you will let affect you.

Each day is a beautiful chance to challenge yourself, to do something new, to be a better ‘version’ of yourself. It is a chance to choose happiness, to take joy for a ride.

Holding onto the past is easy, Very easy. It keeps you safe, and within boundaries of emotions you already know – the anger, the regrets, the resentments. But as soon as you make a choice to let go of the past, as soon as you make a choice of not letting the past affect your present … that’s when you start to make room for the rest of your life to show up. That’s when you actually choose happiness for yourself.

Make a choice. The Power is Yours.

Being You. Changing The World

Being You. Changing The World by Dr Dain Heer

One of the best books I have read in recent years.  If you ever thought you don’t ‘belong’, people don’t understand you, and everyone thinks you are weird … guess what .. this book is for you!

Being You Changing The World empowers you with very simple yet life altering tools on how to embrace yourself, accept yourself with love, drop the judgement, change your conscious mind patterns, and simply helps you get to a place to celebrate the glory, greatness and joy of being YOU. This book talks to you. His writing is simple, and yet very powerful.

I read this book last year, and since then I keep picking it up every time I feel I don’t get what’s happening around me or if I go into judgement of me. Access Consciousness is a fun modality that ‘provides you with ways to become totally aware and to begin to function as the conscious being you truly are.’ You start to play with energy, you become aware of your choices, and you start to live in 15 sec increments.  You become aware that every choice is determined by you, and you have the complete power to choose. So what will you choose?

Go ahead, read a sample, and see what else is possible? What glorious and fun adventures are you ready to have with You?
