Life Without Limits PB: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life
What Would Your Life be Like if Anything Were Possible?
Born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic overcame his disabilities to live an independent, rich, fulfilling, and 'ridiculously good' life while serving as a role model for anyone seeking true happiness. Now an internationally successful motivational speaker, Nick eagerly spreads his central message: the most important goal is to find your life's purpose and to never give up, despite whatever difficulties or seemingly impossible odds stand in your way.
Nick tells the story of his physical disabilities and the emotional battle he endured while learning to deal with them as a child, teen, and 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.'
Nick shares how his faith in God has been his major source of strength, and he explains that once he found a sense of purpose - inspiring others to better their lives and the world around them - he found the confidence to build a rewarding and productive life without limits. Let Nick inspire you to start living your own life without limits.
Includes a Life Without Limits Personal Action Plan to help anyone determine their unique path to a successful life.
Nick Voyicic has touched my heart and his book is a real attempt to help people who are feeling defeated. It is not an autobiography as such; it is motivational and spiritually uplifting. It gets one's own difficulties into perspective and it is encouraging and helpful. It does rely on faith in the ultimate nature of things and is based in Christianity. However, anyone who has faith in a power higher than themselves will be able to reap tremendous rewards from Nick's words.
I reckon people who have not heard of this man should read this book. This has touched me and I love this man and his power to do what he can do with this disability!!!!
On the face of it, Nick Vuyicic seems to have every reason to feel sour about life. Yet from this book shines such positivity and faith. It is a truly inspirational read, and tends to put the little problems I may face in perspective. Highly recommended.
If you are feeling sorry for yourself, and thinking that life is a bit hard on you, this is a must read. A baby born with no limbs, other than a tiny appendage where a leg should be. A shock for his parents, this was post Thalydomide, and a life of challenges. He was a gorgeous baby, how easy it would have been for his parents to wrap him up in cotton wool and let him vegetate. Fortunately they would not allow that, and he had a very determined spirit. His parents allowed him to face each challenge in his own way, finding a solution.
Yes, he was labelled a freak by unkind children and adults alike, it must have hurt, but he found ways of getting over that. A Christian family, there is a strong Christian theme running through - Life without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life. It is exciting and full of humour. He laughed at himself, and enjoyed playing practical jokes with the help of siblings, cousins and friends. A truly excellent book that I was sorry to finish.
