Dealing with Depression in College – Do It Nick Vujicic Way [Video]

If you’re finding it difficult to deal with depression in college or high school, if you think you’re the unfortunate one, and, worse, if you feel life is not worth living, then watch this video. Bit longish (nearly 15 minutes), but worth watching.

Nick Vujicic was born with tetra-Amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized with absence of all four limbs. As a child, he was teased and mocked at. He thought he had no future, no opportunity, and no hope. And he nearly attempted suicide at the age of ten.

Today, he is a sought-after speaker (30,000 standing invitations at the time of this talk), has addressed millions in 60+ countries, has met the who’s who, runs a non-profit and a for-profit venture, has written two books, has done a music video, has acted in a short film with an award winning performance, and has a spouse and a child.

Growth Mindset Example: Eustace’s Record-Breaking Jump from Space [Video]

On October 24, 2014, Alan Eustace, then Senior Vice President of Knowledge at Google, jumped off a helium balloon from stratosphere, creating two world records – longest and highest (135,890 feet) free-fall than any other human being.
In all, he took just 15 minutes to complete the record-breaking fall.

Just 15 minutes.

It doesn’t look too difficult: he donned a special suit, took a helium balloon from Roswell, New Mexico, ascended to 135,890 feet, jumped, opened the parachute few hundred feet above the ground, and… record accomplished.

Does it?

However, it wasn’t that straightforward.
