This morning, after having my tea, making my husband his smoothie and getting him off to the office…I put in one of my favorite Jillian Michaels DVDs to get my workout in before starting my day. As Jillian was seriously kicking my ass…she said something that I just loved so much; it was so motivating that I had to go back to that part when I was done to hear it again... Here's what she said, (or yelled!)…"For those of you who are going to argue with me about your limitations…IF YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR LIMITATIONS YOU GET TO KEEP THEM!!!! Instead of thinking about what you CAN'T do and what's NOT possible, why don't you think about what you CAN do and what IS possible!!"
I often hate her during my workouts, but I love her because she has given me a stronger body at 42 years old than I had in my 20's. It got me thinking about the limitations people THINK hold them back and it reminded me of a video I saw that's very inspirational, touching, and makes you RETHINK your limitations. When you see what this man has overcome in his life, it might help put yours in perspective and be inspired to DO MORE, GIVE MORE, and ACHIEVE MORE! His name is Nicholas James Vujicic, and Australian motivational speaker born with Tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. Take a look, share it with someone you love, and go have an AMAZING, HAPPY HEALTHY day! Take a moment out of your busy day to watch the short video...you won't regret it.
