Don't you think we as humans take everything in life for granted? A lot of us don't even put in efforts and all we do is complain about all the petty issues. It's sad how we're never thankful for the things we have. But there are some people in this world who defy all the odds and make their lives worthwhile.
Meet Nicholas James Vujicic, a man who was born with no hands and legs. Unlike anybody else, Nick chose to do things that maybe a lot of us can't. Knowing what he has achieved in life would definitely inspire you more than anything.
Born in Melbourne in the year 1982, Nick had a condition because of which he was born without any limbs, with only two deformed feet that he uses to type, write and swim.
Even though he was loved immensely by his friends and family, he grew depressed as a child and tried to drown himself in a bathtub at the age of 10.
At the age of 13, he hurt his foot and that's when he realized that his focus should be more on the positive side of his life rather than crying over his disabilities.
When he was 17, a janitor at his high school inspired him to start speaking about his faith in god. And that's when he initiated his beautiful journey of life. In the beginning, he started speaking to small groups telling them about his faith in god. Ever since he has continued being a public speaker and has given speeches over 2000 times in 44 countries!
His speeches are so heartfelt and motivating that it's always a struggle to control your tears from falling.
He is also the founder of his company called "Attitude is Altitude" and has a non-profit ministry called "Life Without Limbs" which helps him to spread the message of hope and faith all across the world.
Nick found love in Kanae Miyahara which he thought he would never find in any person. He said he never thought anyone could love as much until he found Kanae.
The duo tied the knot in the year 2012 and are now blessed with two adorable boys.
Being a brilliant speaker, Nick is also an amazing writer. His first book was published in the year 2010 called Life without Limits: Inspiration for a ridiculously good life.
One of his books have been recently published this year called Love without Limits which includes Nick and Kanae's beautiful love story.
Nick Vujicic is truly one of the most amazing and inspiring man to ever exist.
He definitely is a blessing in disguise.
