Learning From Famous Inspirational People To Achieve Success
1. Helen Keller
The Inspirational Life Of Helen Keller
I always say Helen Keller is one of the best inspirational people I admire. Her life was full of inspiration.
Helen Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. Born on June 27th, 1880, died on 1st June 1968.
She lived as deaf and blind since her childhood. However, she didn’t let her disability enslave her. She was the first deaf and blind person to earn a bachelor of art degree.
Hellen Keller wrote 22 books and other articles. One popular book is her autobiography entitled ” The Story of my life(1903)“.She also wrote, “The World I Live In(1908)” which gives insight into how she felt about life.
She became a well-known celebrity and lecturer by sharing her experiences with audiences and working on behalf of others living with disabilities.
Helen testified before Congress, strongly advocating to improve the welfare of blind people.
She also joined other organizations dedicated to helping those less fortunate, including the Permanent Blind War Relief Fund (later called the American Braille Press)
Helen traveled to 35 countries on five continents. In 1955, when she was 75 years, Keller embarked on the longest and most grueling trip of her life: e.i. a 40,000-mile, five-month trek across Asia.
Through her many speeches and appearances, Helen brought inspiration and encouragement to millions of people in the world.
She is one of the inspirational people who proved that “disability is not inability“.She changed the perception of people’s views against physically challenged people and all kinds of hard situations in life.
2. Nick Vujicic
The Inspirational Life Story Of Nick Vujicic
Right from Helen Keller, we land on Nick Vujicic. Helen was the classic inspirational person in the 20th century.
Now in this 21st century, it is all about Nick Vujicic. He has shared his inspirational messages with about 6 million people in 57 countries.
In most of my inspirational articles, I make reference to the amazing life of Nick Vujicic. Actually, I prefer calling him ‘Pastor Nick Vujicic.’
Don’t be surprised that the two famous inspirational people I have mentioned so far are handicapped. Yes, they hold genuine inspiration for everyone facing life challenges.
At least if their inspirational messages don’t touch your heart; their lifestyle will. They don’t give flimsy excuses but to go out there and make an impact.
Nick can swim, use the computer, play soccer, and do the unimaginable. He is a limbless man but that doesn’t prevent him from enjoying life to the fullest.
Back to the real issue about Pastor Nick Vujicic. He was born without limbs but he is one of the happiest people in the world today.
Do you have any excuse for not being happy?. Do you find yourself in a pool of hopelessness that you will never be yourself again?. Don’t underestimate your potentials. Cheer up now!.
Here is Nick, the man full of inspiration not that he has no worries nor challenges. But he has trained himself to stay positive in every situation. He has overcome his limitations and conquered his fears.
Nick was born in 1982 with a rare disease making him limbless. Despite this, he has achieved so many in life. He is the New York Times best-selling author. For in-depth information on Pastor, Nick Vujicic use this link to read about his beautiful life which is full of happiness.
3. Jacqueline Saburido
The Inspirational Life Story Of Jacqueline Saburido
Talking about famous inspirational people, I cannot leave Jacqueline Saburido behind. She was born on 20th December 1978 in Venezuela.
She has shared her inspiring story with people all around the world. Jacqueline is the one to prove to you that, there is still hope if you have ‘breath of life‘. Her tragic story goes like this:
On September 19, 1999, after dancing Salsa and partying, she had a lift from her classmate Natalia Chpytchak-Bennett. Unfortunately, a drunk driver, Reginald Stephey (18yrs) who was driving home… On a dark road on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, …a crush….two people( Guerrero and Chpytchak-Bennett) died instantly.
Jacqueline Saburido commonly known as Jacqui was trapped in the car. She sustained burns on her face. This beautiful young lady suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to over 60% of her body but survived despite her doctor’s expectations. She survived, thanks be to God!.
Now, Jacqui has allowed herself to become an activist against “drink driving“. Despite her deformity, she has found the courage to speak in public. She uses her photo before the accident and how she looks now to Conscientize people on the dangers of drink driving.
Above all, she has great faith in God. She believes God has a purpose for her. She is a courageous woman. She said;
“Am I not a human being that has the right to go out and have some fun after the 50 surgeries I have to endure? Was it not enough having to go out and dealing with everybody looking at me?”
“If it had not been for my strength, my determination and my faith in God that nurtures me every day, I would have been depressed, crying every day without wanting to get out of my house, or maybe I could have wanted to kill myself after the great humiliation I suffered. But that was not the case! Because I know how much I am worth and nothing or nobody is going to stop me from making my rights count and from continuing with the great mission that God has for me and for which he allowed me to stay on this planet.”
Somebody’s negligence deformed this beautiful girl. It could happen to any of us. What do you think?. In one of my oldest posts about “weekend celebration“.
I iterated on the dangers of over celebration. A piece of advice like this can save you from an unforeseen accident like what Reginald Stephey caused to innocent Jacqui. She has also set some good examples of forgiveness and many people are learning from her.
4. Jack Ma
This man is very famous in every part of the world today. But who thought he could reach this far; judging from his difficult beginning?.
Well, he is one of the guys whom you seriously have to take inspiration from. Jack Ma chose to be resilient to failure. And his pay off is great.
Jack Ma got rejected 10 times when he tried to school at Havard University. He also got rejected 30 times when he tried to get a job. Even the police refused to take him!
It felt like he was cursed to fail. But that bitter experiences never bog him down. Jack Ma avenged his failure with success.
He founded Alibaba Group in 1995. Even his initiative was rejected and criticized by investors as unprofitable and unsustainable. Today, Alibaba is the largest e-commerce platform you could ever think of.
He is now known as the richest man in China with a net worth of about $26 Billion. This is one of the famous inspirational people you must make your role model.
No matter how hard life is, you can get through it and someday share your story with others. Jack Ma said:
“If you can not get used to failure — just like a boxer — if you can’t get used to [being] hit, how can you win?” — Jack Ma
