Nick Vujicic, "No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!"
Ever grumbled that life is not fair... Why such things are happening?... Why me Lord?... Why this time?...
Wait till you meet Nicholas "Nick" Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich), born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia without arms and legs. But this disability does not disable him to live a normal life, achieve his dreams and even reach out for others. With the support of his Christian parents - Dushka Vujicic, nurse and Borris Vujicic, pastor, Nick defeated emotional struggles and depression during his growing years. It was not easy though, but Nick managed to adapt to his feebleness and do greater things beyond himself.
Nick started his first motivational speaking engagement at the of age 19 . At 21, he completed double major in Accounting and Financial Planning. In 2005, he was nominated for the "Young Australian of the Year" Award. At age 25, author of his first book,"No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!" ; traveled in 19 nations; president of an international non-profit organization - Life Without Limbs; and also has his own motivational speaking company - Attitude Is Altitude.
One of God's promises which enables Nick to do the impossible is found in Jeremiah 29:11,
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
God bless you Nick!
