I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

You are special.

nick-closeupEveryone in this world is special.   It doesn’t matter what people have told you in the past or how they have treated you – YOU ARE SPECIAL!    Many people grow up in a negative environment where they have been treated badly, ignored or abused and they believe their lives have no value or purpose.  We have to show our families, friends and others around us how special they are by encouraging them to develop their strengths and use their abilities to the best of their potential.

One person that continually encourages me to live up to my potential is Nick Vujicic (  He is an amazing man who has overcome his disability and does far more that I could ever dream of doing.  He is a very special person and he makes others feel special.  I often watch his video clips and I just watched one today called ‘The Butterfly Circus” – a short film that I’ve never seen.  It shows what happens when people encourage each other and treat us for the special people that we are.   Enjoy!


An amazing man

This video clip is from a recent Oprah Winfrey show…… inspired!
