Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.

“Life without limbs? Or life without limits?”

Imagine being born without arms. No arms to wrap around someone, no hands to experience touch, or to hold another hand with. Or what about being born without legs? Having no ability to dance, walk, run, or even stand on two feet. Now put both of those scenarios together: no arms and no legs. What would you do? How would that effect your everyday life?

Nick Vujicic… Born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without any medical explanation or warning, Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich) came into the world with neither arms nor legs. Having had an uneventful pregnancy and no family history to expect this condition, imagine the shock his parents felt when they saw their first born, brand new baby boy, only to find he was what the world would consider imperfect and abnormal. A limbless son was not what nurse Dushka Vujicic, and her husband Pastor Borris Vujicic had been expecting. How would their son live a normal happy life? What could he ever do or become when living with what the world would see as such a massive disability? Little did they know that this beautiful limbless baby would one day be someone who would inspire and motivate people from all walks of life, touching lives all over the world.

Nick Vujicic struggled mentally and emotionally as well as physically when he was a child. However, with strong willpower, he finally came to terms with his disability. Nick said in one of his interviews: “I found the purpose of my existence, and also the purpose of my circumstance. There’s a purpose for why you’re in the fire.” Nick wholeheartedly believes that there is a purpose in each of the struggles we each encounter in our lives, and that our attitude towards those struggles, along with our faith and trust in the Lord can be the keys to overcoming the challenges we face.

By using his own actions, Vujicic showed what it means to “never give up.” The news of his engagement must be yet another example of what it means that his life is truly without limits.

In 2010, Vujicic published the book “Life Without Limits”, in which he tells how he overcame his disability to live not just independently but a rich, fulfilling life, becoming a model for anyone seeking true happiness.

“Attitude Is Everything And Self Perception Determines Direction”


Today, on August 12, 2013 I had the opportunity to meet with Nick. Such a great experience:

Live with passion!
