I first heard about Nick Vujicic from my sister a few years ago. She passed me a DVD and said “watch this story about a guy born without arms and legs”. I quickly became Nick’s fan after watching his video on how he overcame his disability and depression. I was moved and greatly encouraged by his never-die, never-give-up attitude. Here I am with arms and legs but I am not even near what he has accomplished so far without arms and legs.
Nick struggled a lot when he was a kid. He was depressed, lonely, got bullied in school and frustrated with his condition. When he was 10 years old, he even attempted suicide. He could not understand why he was different from the other kids. Despite the struggles, Nick eventually overcame them over the years through faith in God and support from his family and loved ones. He decided he would start doing things by himself and not have to rely on his parents or people around him. He was determined to keep a positive attitude at all times and God transformed his life.
Today Nick is a dynamic motivational speaker and evangelist who travels around the world. He shares his courageous story to encourage millions of people around the world, speaking to students, teachers, young people and church audiences. The venues are usually packed to maximum capacity. When Nick came to my church 3 years ago, it was so packed that people had to sit on the floor. In every city that Nick visited, he attracted hundreds and thousands of people waiting eagerly to hear him speak. Even the local media channels would rush to cover his amazing story in the news. They want to know how this young man can accomplish so much more than most people can achieve in a lifetime. Nick is an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming.
Originally born in Australia, Nick stays in Southern California, USA now where he is president of an international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs. He is married to his lovely wife and they have a 2-year old son.
Nick Vujicic says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!”
Nick enjoys scuba diving, sky diving, swimming and a lot of outdoor adventures despite having no arms and legs. He really enjoys them and nothing can stop him! This is really living life without limits. Our only limitation is our mindset. I am truly inspired by Nick Vujicic and his faith in God. If you have been inspired by Nick, please share his amazing story with your family and friends. Encourage someone today!
