Enthusiasm is the key to success in life. Many times we get frustrated by remembering the failures of the past. It seems to us that we have not been able to meet our expectations. This makes our attitude towards life negative.
Enthusiasm has immense power. A person with an excited mind can easily overcome any major disaster and achieve success.
Jack Ma, the founder of the world’s leading e-commerce company, Alibaba, says that for me, life is full of surprises. He says half of my life has been spent fighting failure. There was a day when I was not even considered fit for a salesman’s job in a small company. At that time I asked myself, what do I want to do in my life? My inner self said, “do not sit at all by giving up. Rather do things with enthusiasm. Then life taught me a new lesson every day. I just moved forward with enthusiasm and work dedicatedly. You prepare yourself to face any situation with enthusiasm. The situation is that if you are full of enthusiasm, then no problem seems big to you. With enthusiasm, you make your way to success with ease.
The whole world remembers Jessica Cox of America for achieving success with the power of enthusiasm. Born in the US state of Arizona, Jessica did not have both hands. When Jessica grew up, her parents got her prosthetic hands. But Jessica was not comfortable with those prosthetic hands. She removed the artificial hands. Jessica made enthusiasm for the core of moving forward in life. She started doing all the work on foot. Be it picking up a book or any other household chores. When she started going to school, the school children were surprised to see her. But her parents encouraged her.
Jessica learned to comb her hair with her feet, take a bath, etc. She started learning to dance without hands. With no hands, she became a karate champion, she started driving with her feet. She started typing with her toe fingers.
Once she thought she could fly the plane too, she met the pilot of the fighter plane. She took guidance from the pilot of a fighter plane. It took her nearly three years in this work. She practiced flying for 89 hours. She then got a license to fly the plane.
Jessica is the first handless woman of the world with a license to fly airplanes. In this perspective, her name is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
After achieving worldwide fame and name, she decided to marry her friend Patrick Chamberlain. Now the issue was where to wear the engagement ring? Then fiancée Patrick put the ring on Jessica’s toe. Her engagement picture went viral in newspapers and television channels across the world. The picture was captioned – “Engagement photo of the world’s first handless woman, self-made with enthusiasm and courage.”
