Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic
From the Publisher:
Life Without Limits is an inspiring book by an extraordinary man. Born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic overcame his disability to live not just independently but a rich, fulfilling life, becoming a model for anyone seeking true happiness. Now an internationally successful motivational speaker, his central message is that the most important goal for anyone is to find their life’s purpose despite whatever difficulties or seemingly impossible odds stand in their way.
Nick tells the story of his physical disabilities and the emotional battle he endured trying to deal with them as a child, a teen, and a young adult. “For the longest, loneliest time, I wondered if there was anyone on earth like me, and whether there was any purpose to my life other than pain and humiliation.” He shares how his faith in God has been his central source of strength and explains that once he found his own sense of purpose—inspiring others to make their lives and the world better—he found the confidence to build a rewarding and productive life without limits.
Nick offers practical advice for realizing a life of fulfillment and happiness by building trust in others, developing supportive relationships, and gaining strength for the journey. He encourages the reader by showing how he learned to accept what he could not control and focus instead on what he could. “I do believe my life has no limits! I want you to feel the same way about your life, no matter what your challenges may be. As we begin our journey together, please take a moment to think about any limitations you’ve placed on your life or that you’ve allowed others to place on it. Now think about what it would be like to be free of those limitations. What would your life be if anything were possible?”
—Nick Vujicic, from Life Without Limits
This book should be ready by all tweens and teenagers - it should be a requirement in school. In fact - this book should be read by everyone!!! There are so many obstacles out there to overcome and so many become so distraught because they do not feel that they fit in, that there is nothing to live for and that they have no future. Nick Vujicic shows in his book, in his videos and in his speaking that anyone can do anything - even when they have physical limitations. God loves everyone and has a plan for everyone - no matter who you are and no matter what your circumstances are. His videos make me cry, he inspires me as a human being and I hope that you find the same for you when reading this book and that you never forget the lessons to be found inside it's covers!
