This is a story of a man who is an inspiration for people who say “Sorry, I failed”. This man is a motivational speaker from Australia who can be better introduced as half human being. This man is none other than Nick Vujicic. He is the name of an inspirational fireball that has the potential to ignite all the minds who have given up on their “purpose of life”.
Nick Vujicic (Nicholas James Vujicic) was born in 1982 to a Serbian couple in Melbourne, Australia. Nick was born with a rare disease known as Tetra-Amelia Syndrome in which all four limbs are not there in a human body. After seeing this, his parents were initially disheartened, but later on, they took it as a God’s blessing. His parents bought him up strong to face the ugly reality of life.
When Nick came in teenage, his mother used to inspire him by showing a newspaper article of a severely disabled person who carried his life with great vigour. Nick used to give speeches in a church prayer group where his mother used to work. He pursued commerce course and graduated from Griffith University. He scored very good marks in accountancy and financial planning.
Inspirational Journey of Life
Nick started his public speaking career when he was just 19 years old. In 2005, Nick founded a non-profit organisation “Life Without Limbs”. Through this organisation, he used to spread the message of the life he experienced with a great determination and strong will power. In 2007, he founded a motivational speaking company “Attitude is Altitude”. Nick has traveled to 60 countries to inspire people out of his own experiences.
In 2008, Nick met Kanae Miyahara in Texas. Kanae had once gone to listen to Nick’s motivational speeches where she was overwhelmed. Kanae is the younger daughter of Japanese agricultural engineer. The couple got married in 2012 and currently based in Texas.
Nick, in his autobiography, mentioned that he tried to commit suicide at the age of 10 years. He threw himself in a bathtub of water with more than 6 feet depth and tried to drown himself, but he failed. After this, he came to know that it’s all God’s wish and God had a different destiny for him.
Life Without Limbs
Nick is a self-made wonder who does many things as normal people do. He has plenty of confidence which inspires him to take on life head to head. In his opinion, you a more disabled than him if you don’t know these three things:
- Who are you & what your value is
- What is your purpose in life
- What is your destiny when you have done here
He describes life as all about finding the purpose. You don’t have to prove others; you don’t have to live for others. You just have to focus on the purpose of your life. He believes that every single human life has its own value and it doesn’t depend on anyone else’s life. Nick has even worked in various music videos to inspire people who are suffering from depression. Nick has even worked in a short film ‘The Butterfly Circus’. This short film inspires the human mind that is ridiculed by negligence, comment barbs, mockery, and everything that discourages a person to live.
