Some people advise: “Improve your weaknesses to become better.”
I think it is total non-sense!
9 days with Mohammed proved me the opposite!
During my first days in Tehran, I have been feeling sad after witnessing Mohammed struggling with his walking. I had tears in my eyes, when he asked me to pray for him, so he will be healed and then able to walk normally.
My mind was clouded with sadness and I was trying to figure out how I could help to fix Mohammed’s problem. Rehab? Special doctor? Shaman? Miracle? I was desperate and really gloomy. Mohammed was sobbing every day, how unfortunate he is that he cannot walk and talk.
And then, last night after online chat with my Dad, I have got it!
I knew Mohammed is great with computers and he could be really excellent in it, if he only knows how to read and write!
So, last night we have started to get Mohammed’s literacy under his belt.
Prior to start we have made an agreement: that there will be NO crying about his feet and disabilities anymore! <we shook hands on it>
I have showed Mohammed pictures of Prof. Stephen Hawking and explained to him, that he is much better off (physically) than Prof. Hawking. So, no more tears and complaints!
We have studied last night till 2.30 AM and Mohammed carried on with reading new words and letters in his room till God knows when.
In the morning he was dragging me out of bed to carry on with reading and writing lessons.
Yes, this is the way:
Instead of crying over his walking, it is much better to get his amazingly intelligent mind occupied with learning.
Mohammed’s glowing face is the answer why I think that focusing on improving weaknesses is non-sense.
SCG, focus on what you are good at, what you enjoy doing, practice it, sweat it out and new horizons will appear in front of you.
Keep on unleashing your powers, folks!
