Nick Vujicic- Get Inspired from this man!!
Nick Vujicic..alias Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich), the man without hands and limbs, but who has conquered hearts of millions…..many of you might have already heard and known him…..but I must let you know that he is a messenger of God to let each human being realise ones own purpose of life, instead of sweating and fettering around with silly complaints and headaches.
Every time I see a video of this amazing guy, I can simply admire the way God has given him the ability to identify his key talents and use the available resources to spread the word of love, positivity, faith and courage to people around the world.
The remarkable features, I find in this wonderful person is that:
- He is thankful to God for his birth on Planet Earth (which most humans don’t do or value)
- He is living the life of his dreams (With all his disabilities, he has dared to dream of a life with purpose, have a wonderful family life, enjoy the funny side of life, taste the pleasures of travelling around the world and above all cherish each day of life, each event he attend, each person he interact with…….which normal human beings fail to do)
- He has not only identified his purpose of life, but also taken steps to actualise it (He is preaching the words of Jesus, words of peace and positivity for the last 10 years and in over 25 nations. How many people in this world take steps to reach their goals of life that are selfless and significant?)
Here is one part of Nick’s life story as narrated in one of his official websites:
“Throughout his childhood Nick dealt not only with the typical challenges of school and adolescence such as bullying and self-esteem issues; he also struggled with depression and loneliness as he questioned why he was different to all the other kids surrounding him; why he was the one born without arms and legs. He wondered what was the purpose behind his life, or if he even had a purpose.
After a lot of frustration and feeling like the odd one out in school, at seven years of age Nick tried out some specially designed electronic arms and hands, in hope that he would be more like the other kids. During the short trial period of the electronic arms, Nick realized that even with them, he was still unlike his peers at school, and they turned out to be much too heavy for Nick to operate, effecting his general mobility quite significantly.
As Nick grew up he learnt to deal with his disability and started to be able to do more and more things on his own. He adapted to his situation and found ways to accomplish tasks that most people could only do by using their limbs, such as cleaning teeth, brushing hair, typing on a computer, swimming, playing sports, and much more. As time went by Nick began to embrace his situation and achieve greater things. In grade seven Nick was elected captain of his school and worked with the student council there on various fund-raising events for local charities and disability campaigns.
According to Nick the victory over his struggles throughout his journey, as well as the strength and passion he has for life can be credited to his faith, his family, his friends and the many people he’s encountered during his life who have encouraged him along the way.
After school Nick went on with further study and obtained a double bachelor degree majoring in accounting and financial planning. By the age of 19 Nick started to fulfil his dream of being able to encourage other people and bring them hope, through motivational speaking and telling his story. 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 encounter in our lives and that our attitude towards those struggles that can be the single most effective factor in overcoming them.
In 2005 Nick was nominated for the “Young Australian of the Year” Award, which is a large honor in Australia, recognizing a young person for their excellence and service to their local community and the nation, as well as their own personal accomplishments. Nominations for this award are only given to truly inspirational people.
Now at 28, this limbless young man has accomplished more than most people even twice his age. Nick recently made the massive move from Brisbane, Australia to California, USA, where he is the president of an international non-profit organization, and also has his own motivational speaking company; Attitude Is Altitude. Since his first motivational speaking engagement back when he was 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions of people, speaking to a range of different groups such as students, teachers, youth, business men and women, entrepreneurs, and church congregations of all sizes. He has also told his story and been interviewed on various televised programs worldwide”.
If a man without hand and limbs could do this much, I wonder how much normal human beings blessed with every physical abilities and senses can contribute to world. GET INSPIRED from the life of these rare lives on Earth and make some positive difference to your family, your society, your nation and to the world at large. Hiring words of Nick I conclude for the day: “Motivation gets you through the day, but inspiration lasts a lifetime.”
