23 Most Inspiring People Alive

I came across this article "23 Most Inspiring People Alive" written by PowToon and I just had to share it. There are always lessons and insights in someone else's story and you could just have your 'light bulb' moment reading through their stories. Find below 3 of my favourites from the list and go here for the full article.

Nick Vujicic was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterised by the absence of all four limbs. His videos on YouTube have inspired millions and millions of people with his message to love life and live without limits. He was tormented to such an extent that at the age of 10 he attempted suicide. After years of feeling alone and worthless, he had an epiphany one day while reading an article.

He read about a disabled man who refused to let physical limitations dictate his life. At that moment, Nick says, he realized he had the ability to take control of his life. Instead of looking at everything he lacked, he decided to look at everything he could have. Now a famous author and international speaker, Nick inspires the world everyday to live a life without limits. His message is brilliantly sobering and electric.

Oprah Winfrey
Despite how most people view Oprah, she has not led an easy life. She was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother. She was raped at the age of 9, because pregnant 14 and lost her son while still in infancy. But Oprah would make history in her heroic transformation to eventually become one of the most powerful women on earth.

She is a multi-billionaire and is regarded as the “Queen of Media“. Oprah has done so much in her career it’s dizzying. But the most inspiring thing she’s done is showing you that your circumstances don’t dictate your life, only your desire does.

James Franco
He’s a published poet, has a PHD from Yale, teaches film at NYU and USC, debuted in Broadway and is an Academy Award nominee. James Franco inspires because he doesn’t stop and isn’t afraid to go into new territory. He’s not expecting his poetry to be a best seller – but he published it. And just because he’s an actor doesn’t mean he can’t pursue a PHD and teach. So don’t limit your ability to be an artist – the world is your canvas.
