I was one of the lucky 5,000 who managed to get tickets to watch Nick Vujicic LIVE in Singapore, at The Star Performing Arts Centre, next to Buona Vista MRT Station! 😀 Were you at the event too?
Got to the venue in a taxi and was pleasantly surprised to find out that the cabby is none other than Halim Haron, a former national champion bodybuilder! He now drives a cab on weekends, and is a fitness instructor on weekdays. I even got some fitness tips during the journey – totally worth every cent paid! Haha!
Tickets to “No Limits” were sold out within 5 days (so apparently, there were limits to the number of seats! Ha!).
For those who were unable to attend the event, I’d like to share my notes with you right here. So, if it’s of use to you, leave me a comment, even if it’s just to say “thanks!” ok? 😀
“When you concentrate on the things you don’t have, you forget what you DO have.”
You are valuable, no matter what. You are beautiful.
How can you get courage? PURPOSE ignites courage.
(1) Have an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for what you have.
(2) You don’t know what you can achieve till you TRY!
(3) If you fail, try again.
Keep trying to reach your fullest potential without comparing yourself with anyone else.
The greatest things in life are not things!
Be yourself, not anyone else!
Don’t let your appearance define who you are.
Take one day at a time. Be thankful.
Have you forgiven yourself of the past?
(4) Failure = Education
You are not a failure.
(5) Obstacles can be transformed into opportunities.
Don’t know something? Now’s your chance to learn to do it.
(6) Dream BIG
(7) Never ever ever EVER give up!
(8) Have faith
If you don’t get a miracle, you can still be a miracle for someone else.
Have clarity about which things you can change and which things you just cannot change.
Having trouble asking for help???
Nick’s answer: Be willing to ask for help so people can partake in your success to come because they have helped you.
Learn to delegate. Find trustworthy people. If you give someone a task, he’ll not do it exactly the way you want. Learn to let go.
Some things you just can’t compromise about, but for other things, you can!
Finally, one last thing that Nick said that really resonated with me was this: “I want people to want to work with me. Not because of money but because they want to work with me.”
Thanks for popping by Working With Grace. 🙂 I hope you have been inspired. Let’s all have a ridiculously good life, just like Nick’s! 😀
