When faced with daily problems and struggled with the hard reality, even motivated people tend to lose their faith and lose their vision. This is the time we would be some help and encouragement from someone else.
I would just quote his speech below as a spur for my journey. And I also hope friends who watched what Nick has been achieved is able to carry the spirit with them.
So what do you do when you fall down? Get back up, everybody knows to get back up, … But I tell you there are some times in the life where you fall down and feel like you don’t have the strength to get back up. …, when you don’t have to impress anybody and you’re yourself, and fears come in. You know the fear that you have as soon as you walk into the doors of your house. Maybe it is a broken home. Maybe you have doubt in your life. Maybe you don’t know for sure what’s going to happen in future, and it scares you. Maybe you’re worried about what people think of you, what people say about you. Just that fear that paralyzes you, and I just want to ask you today. Do you think you have hope? Because I tell you I’am down here, face down, and I have no arms and no legs. It should be impossible for me to get back up …
But it’s not. You see, I will try 100 times to get up and if I fail 100 times, if I fail and I give up, do you think that I’am ever going to get up? No. But if I fail and I try again? And again and again? For as long as I try there is always that chance of me getting up. And it’s not the end until you’ve given up. And just the fact that you’re here, should persuade you that you have another chance to get back up. There is still hope.
I am not here today to tell you that I understand your pain. … But I know how it feels to have a broken heart, and I know how it feels to be alone, and I want you to know that I have found my strength with Jesus Christ, and you are going to find that strength in whatever you find it in. But I just want you to know that it’s not the end. It matters how you are going finish. Are you going to finish strong? And you will find that strength to get back up. like this …
We tend to get inspired when you hear this kind of stories, and feels we can achieve anything we want. But everybody knows that is hard. We wake up earlier, make big decisions, acted more deterministically for the first few days. Then our schedule tend to fall back the way we comfortable in. And when we surrounded by negative feedback and energies, faced down the ground, it is really hard to raise your head.
Thats why I have to make this mark here as a constant reminder of hope we have as long as we keep getting up and trying hard.
