Blind, But Standing Tall

The power of attitude and positive thinking never cease to amaze me. These two elements always bring out the best of every individual and it beautifully proven and illustrated in biographies of successful people. One should take note that most of these successful characters were almost never born with a silver spoon. Many of them had to endure countless hardship which most of us will probably just throw in the towel and give up. Through the experiences they accumulated in life, they emerged as a better and stronger person instead of being cowed into straying off the pathway to success.

One of such remarkable individuals had his story featured the Sunday Star (29th July 2007). The protagonist of this article, Lee Sheng Chow, beautifully demonstrates that being blind was never an obstacle. It never stopped him in obtaining a degree, starting a massage business and have a family of his own. As if a cruel joke was played on him by God, he and his vision impaired wife was blessed with a daughter who has cerebral palsy but Sheng Chow never once blamed God. Instead, he had the grace to thank God for for the blessings he had receive and ask for His forgiveness each night! To me, that was the most amazing showcase of faith in the Lord and the power of positive attitude towards life. I salute Mr.Lee Sheng Chow for his awe-inspiring faith and attitude and I will always take his words,"Never, never, never, never, ever give up" to heart. Do take the time to download this article and read. I hope it will inspire you as much as it inspired me. Have a good read and cheers!
