Physical Disability Is No Barrier To Success.

My inspiration comes from people who lives a very simple every day life ; Ordinary people with extra-ordinary stories to share. Some are so strong that nothing can ever cut their path short – not even physical ability. This time, I am going to share a story about a man who is not only strong-willed but also determined to be successful despite of his physical condition. After reading through his story, I realize that each one of use are blessed with an ability, beyond the naked eye. Sometimes its in your mind and sometimes its in your spirit.

The person I am referring to here is KHAIRUL NIZAM, the founder of JAMU MALL. Khairul Nizam is one of the many successful entrepreneurs in our country – and what makes him special is the limitation on his physical functioning. At the age of 30, he managed to build an empire that allows him to live a life that is sufficient to support not only himself but his family too.

Aku melihat ramai yg malas untuk ubah hidup sendiri  , ramai yg suke bg bermacam alasan bile bekerja, ramai yg cepat giveup bile ade cabaran !!
Ramai cube memilih untuk kerja senang , taknak susah , lebih memilih kehidupan susah tanpa usaha dengan kuat , sanggup berhenti kerja dan mengangur bertahun2 atas dasar ego boleh bergerak sendiri dan sanggup melihat keluarga dan org sekeliling susah, Paling terkesan nak bg duit mak dan ayah, family pun tak mampu … Aku sedih !!! Terdetik keinginan aku untuk bantu mereka …

Jadi aku bangkit!!! Aku cuba buktikan pada masyarakat the best kehidupan adalah atas dasar bersyukur .. bersyukur dengan nikmat yg allah beri dan jangan sia2 kan , aku bangkit untuk beri manfaat pada org lain . Aku nak satu dunia nampak hanya 3 jari dan satu akal aku dpt melihat kegembiraan , senyuman ramai org2 disekeliling aku ..
Kini aku sedar .. untuk berjaya dlm kehidupan , pekerjaan , mahupun bisnes bukan mudah . Tetapi atas keinginan yg kuat , kasih syg yg hebat , keberanian yg tinggi , suka berlajar dan improve diri , dan juga seorang yg berkomitmen tinggi membawa aku ketahap sekarang .. Dan semua value yg ade dlm diri aku akan aku bawakan kedalam semua team aku dan masyarakat untuk mereka bangkit , bersemangat , dan berjaya !!

Akhir kata … kalau aku ada 3 jari dan akal mampu membina kehidupan sendiri dan kebahagiaan org sekeliling .. anda ade berapa jari untuk ubah kehidupan?? Usia semakin meningkat, jangan tunggu lagi.. kite je mampu ubah diri kita!!

Inspiring wasn’t it? I am truly inspired and decided to follow him. Check out his pages below :

✵ Primero Tatuaje ✵

They say there is a story behind every tattoo. Mine is simple. In fact – the most common one, in my personal opinion. Ribbon. Colorless. Seems childish, I know but the heart wants what it wants. Got my first tattoo 4 years ago, it was a long overdue plan and I didn’t want to push any longer so I decided to go with a ribbon. It was a random thought that jump into my mind – and I was like “Well, that’s it”. Once I got inked – people was quite curious, and started questioning, like “Why ribbon?”, “why colorless?”.

There were even weird questions – some even wondered if it was an inspiration from my favorite disney princess, Cinderella. At that point, it was super annoying and i often sigh about it, genuinely couldn’t find the essence to talk about my tattoo. It was less than 5 cm in size but was such a big concern for many. Eventually, I gave up and prepared a whole story in my head – LITERALLY. I knew exactly what to say – but honest, and it took quite a number of revisits to find why RIBBON was good enough to be my first tattoo.

My answer, like I’ve mentioned earlier, is as simple as my tattoo – my tattoo symbolizes the action of “giving love”. How does a ribbon can be a symbol of such action you may ask, but again tattoo stories with individual, it is a personal choice – something we want others to respect ; just like our personal space. This is the “thing” that was there in my head in the moment, and kept lingering around – it was almost difficult to take it out thus I took it a sign. I am someone who believes in love and kindness – people are capable of these and we should always spread positive vibes, than the negative ones.

And a colorless ribbon symbolizes the action has no boundaries – it is an oath to love each other without looking at one’s external but to love them with no borders – to spread kindness and love no matter where you are. It is also a symbol that love is not within human being only – it can be extended to our Mother Nature and everything we are blessed with in this universe and beyond. It is a reminder of what the fundamental of love really is to show kindness, genuine care and all the little things I do to make someone happy. It acts as the anchor to my values – holding me grounded to what I am passionate about and to always be as compassionate as I am – in spite of the circumstances.

The cloud of confusions. 

tumblr_m9cbm64ZP21r25xgkThe decisions we take in life are never easy, we all have been there and we all know it. The stress of choosing what we want and what we must have. And often, we choose what we “must” have over what we “want”, because that seems rational, in a good sense. Then we end up disliking what we choose because apparently, we don’t like what we choose because that’s not what we want. But they’re people who likes all the “Musts”. Trust me there are. Example? Well, Parents 😉 . Yeah, I’ve got you on that. LOL.  Alright, before I throw light upon this “controversial – subject” , I just want to say, that I’m not going to cook up stories that’s gonna trigger the taste buds of your wonderful mind, I’m just going to speak truth, as what I think is the truth.

During my school days, I wish my parents asked for my opinion while choosing the right school for me, I was a brilliant kid, but it wasn’t the pleasant years of my life. I remember when I graduated from High School, my parents bragged to their friends and relatives about how confused they were, then they both agreed they’ve made the right decision, when they selected this particular school. All I did was so cliché,  I went into my room, look at my own reflection in the mirror, and said “Mirror mirror on the wall, who are they kidding after all?”  They choose which school I “must” be then which school they “want” me to be in . I wish my parent’s were not so confused , they they over-thought , well, I believe it could have resulted a better outcome. I wish.  But parents, they just want the best from us. No complains.

The next step in life, choosing college to continue my journey, well, I finally got the freedom I yearned for but then with limited choices. Yeah, my parents helped me to ease down the overwhelming stress I felt. They said “ Choose what is the best for you” , well what they meant by that is to choose what you “must” have over what you “want” . Yet again, I was confused. What I want? And what I must have? With all the rules and regulations, limitations set by my parents, I finally pick the college that seems promising to me – well not so, but I did enjoy my days in college *thumbs up* .

Currently, I’m not doing a job that I would love to do, but I “must” do it. Because for various reasons, the “must” seems logical, good, and always  the positive , but trust me, nothing seems to be the way it is for a long time. I’m pretty sure, if I am to do something I must do and let go something that I want to do, I’m pretty sure, I’ll break down one day, and things will go really bad !  Moral of the story ?

Always do something you want to do, don’t do something because you must do it. Still it depends on various factors! The most vital factor, you ask me? PARENTS !  But if you have the freedom to do something without anyone’s permission, follow you what you want !

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
