Publisher Comments:

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

Synopsis:

LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS is an inspiring book by an extraordinary man--Nick Vujicic, who was born without arms or legs but overcame his disability to live not only independently, but to live a rich, fulfilling life that is a model for anyone seeking true happiness.  Now an internationally successful motivational speaker, his key message is letting people know the importance of finding your life's purpose--even through pain.

     

In his youth Nick himself despaired about ever having a "normal" life, even to the point that he attempted suicide.  But with wisdom uncharacteristic of one so young, he realized that he could affect how his life proceeded. Now 27 years old, he is an internationally successful motivational speaker, helping people find the strength to overcome their difficulties however large or small. "Often people ask how I manage to be happy despite having no arms and no legs. The quick answer is that I have a choice. I can be angry about not having limbs, or I can be thankful that I have a purpose. I chose gratitude. You can too."

    

Nick offers profound inspiration in Life Without Limits for getting back up every time you are knocked down. "Follow your heart just as I followed mine in pursuing my dream of inspiring and reaching out to people all over the world. If I can chase my dream traveling thousands and thousands of miles each year, you should have no doubt that your dreams are within reach too."

I believe that the only disability in life is a bad attitude and that lack of imagination is perhaps the most detrimental obstacle.

As a person with Cerebral Palsy who uses a walker to facilitate mobility, I have a personal passion to make the world universally accessible through innovation and design. I believe that Nick's memoir offers a unique first-person account of the able-bodied world and how those of us with differences navigate and shine in our environments. Nick is able to share his passion for life and the divine as he connects with all people in a cohesive manner, understanding their circumstances and meeting their concerns with a level of sensitivity found only in those who have traveled similar paths.

Nick's greatest desire to take his personal experiences and use them to the benefit of others by helping to facilitate growth in public awareness and acceptance of the differently able leaps off the page and is fulfilled in this great work.

In closing, the people who experience challenges first hand are often the ones who bring the greatest innovation and change to such issues. I believe that Nick's personal struggles and triumphs have prepared him to reach all the people of the world, helping each individual to reach their fullest potential.

Thank you Nick for providing all of us with the insight to help celebrate uniqueness and the tools to provide the next generation with a world that embraces curiosity and acceptance, not fear.
