No arms, no legs, no worries
Nick Vujicic was born 30 years ago with no arms and no legs. He resides in California with his wife, KanaeI. His story must have positive impact on our life, as he is able to do things that we can’t, as we are busy complaining and not accepting the life as it is.
Nick was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. It was a shock to his parents when he was born without limbs. His parents did their best to keep him in the mainstream school and give him every opportunity to live to the fullest.
At the age of eight, Nick could not see a bright future ahead and got through the depression. When he was ten years old, he decided to end his life by drowning himself in a bathtub. After a couple attempts, he realized that he did not want his loved ones to feel the burden and guilt, that would result from his suicide.
At the age of thirteen he hurt his foot, which he used for many things like typing, writing, and swimming. That injury made him realize that he need to be more thankful for his abilities and less focused on his disabilities.
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, and whatever you are dealing with, I hope that you will be inspired by my story and my message. Dream big my friend and never give up. We all make mistakes, but none of us are mistakes. Take one day at a time. Embrace the positive attitudes, perspectives, principles, and truths I share, and you too will overcome – Nick Vujicic
When he was fifteen years old, he sealed his faith on God and from there it has been an amazing journey. When he was seventeen, a janitor at his high school inspired him to start speaking about his faith and overcoming adversity. He worked with a speaking coach who helped to cultivate him as a presenter. He especially worked on his body language as his hands flew everywhere at first!
He spoke on motivational topics after creating the company, “Attitude is Altitude”. He also launched a non-profit ministry, life without limbs, to spread the message of faith and hope around the world.
