Life Without Limits, by Nick Vujicic, is one of the best nonfiction books I’ve read in a long time. It left me feeling inspired and motivated to work harder to achieve my own goals in life.
Nick Vujicic had to overcome physical challenges that few people face, but his emotional struggles are ones most of us can relate to. Born without arms or legs, he desperately wanted to fit in and experience the same things other kids did. His parents helped him achieve a certain amount of independence, and he taught himself how to perform many tasks that I’d never have thought possible for a person without arms or legs. An adept swimmer, he also learned to surf. He even defended himself against a bully on the school playground. Yet his physical achievements aren’t as amazing as his emotional strength.
During his youth, Nick faced and overcame serious depression. He began reaching out to others facing tough circumstances and helped them find hope for the future. His own sense of purpose grew stronger as he became acquainted with people all over the world that needed someone to encourage them not to give up their dreams.
Still in his twenties, Nick is already an accomplished motivational speaker, Christian evangelist, and businessman. His positive attitude and insightful suggestions for overcoming life’s trials have made an impact on people wherever he’s travelled. One of the many comments he made in his book that had an impact on me is this: “You may not control what happens to you, but you can control how you respond.”(p.33)
I highly recommend Life Without Limits.
