Change the Perspective

One of people who inspire me the most is Nick Vujicic. I believe many of you know about this man. If you don't, well, he's a man with no arms and no legs. Although he has this disability, he still lives his life to the fullest. He swims. He surfs. He married. He does whatever he wants. Even he inspires many people around the world with great stories about his amazing life. Isn't he really a huge inspiration?

I'm sure you know what I'm gonna write here. Many things we can learn from him, like being thankful, enjoying life, creating your happiness, or living the life you want no matter what the circumstance is. But I want to talk about his great life from a little bit different thing.

He inspired me in one thing when I read his book. If there's one thing I can learn from him, it's that you can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it.

You can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it.

You can't always change your problems - He's born without arms and legs. Well, imagine if he had a faith like "Someday I'll have two arms and two legs. It will grow from the inside of my body. I believe that." It seems like a good attitude, an optimistic thing, but it's not right. If he set his mind like that, he would never live his life like now, because he would always look for something that doesn't exist, and he would just be frustrated. That solution will never come. He's born with no arms and legs. That's it. But wait, it doesn't mean there's no hope. That solution doesn't exist, but it doesn't mean there's no right solution.

You can always change the way you see it - First thing first, he has to accept what happens in his life. Be grateful though he's not as "lucky" as others. Second, change the perspective! It's about the way you see it. Take something good from your challenges. See your problems as opportunities. Take a chance to change your weaknesses into something powerful. Just like Nick, he learned to swim without arms and legs instead of saying "I will never be able to swim like others, because I have no arms and legs".

Don't let your life be controlled by the circumstance. You're the one who should control your life, no matter what the circumstance is.

I don't say that you can always control your circumstance. Sometimes it's just far from what you expect it would be, but you can still design your own life with whatever life throws at you.

You can still change bad things into good things. It's an opportunity to change the worst into the best. Just set it right. It's not easy. Sometimes it takes a long process and time, but it can really happen. Even when the situation is bad, life can still be great when you live it right and see it from the right perspective.

Valentine's day is coming soon, and it's the day of love. I think it's a great idea to share something related to love: Love Languages . Have you heard about it before? It's not my idea.

Look to God, not Yourself

Few days ago, suddenly I was moved to post this topic on this blog, and a perfect title came to me. Look to God, not yourself. This title really represents what I want to share with you right now. Some friends of mine, who are also following my Twitter, told me that I tweet a lot about God. Yeah, maybe it's true. I told them my reason, " Because God has the biggest role in my life. I can talk about my life, my problems, myself, but all of them are nothing if there's no God behind it. There are many things in my life that I really can't do alone. Even when I've done my best, I still can't. I need God. Only God can help me and make it work. " God is the key of everything in my life. Without God, I'm just an imperfect and weak man. Life is too challenging, I can't even handle it with my own strength and ability. I am not able. That's why I really need to look to God. The only reason I stand still now is because I look to God. There are
