Australian motivational speaker, Nick Vujicic, has given presentations about a healthy mind and self esteem to millions of people worldwide, from 25 different countries. He is an unexpected type of person to be a thought leader, because he was born with neither arms, nor legs, without any medical explanation. This hasn’t stopped him from achieving his goals, and having less body parts than the average person didn’t make him less of a man.
The first time we all watched this familiar video we were moved by how someone who we see as less fortunate can take control of his life, and boost the self esteem of others, especially young people. In the presentation Nick boldly says, “I may not have hands to hold my wife’s hands, but when the time comes, I’ll be able to hold her heart. I don’t need hands to hold her heart”. Little did we all know, that he would be speaking into his future at the same time.
On Febuary 10th 2012, ‘limbless’ Nick Vujicic married his fiancé, Kanae Miyahara in California.
We hear all that God uses the most unlikely people to make a difference, but rarely do we see such a great example today. Now we can’t say that we aren’t good enough to take hold of what is rightfully ours.
In a previous interview, Nick said, “Despite the many limitations in life, I can do all things through Him who gives me strength”.
Nick Vujicic runs “Life Without Limbs“, an organisation that uses Nick’s passion and faith to reach out to schools, churches, prisons, orphanages, hospitals, and face-to-face encounters, telling them about the love of Christ.
