Nick Vujicic is a best-selling author, motivational speaker and evangelist. Born without arms or legs, Vujicic has surpassed all expectations.
He struggled as a child when kids bullied him but at 17 he became a motivational speaker. He later earned a double Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Financial Planning then became a full-time speaker.
Since he was 17-years-old, Vujicic has traveled to over 57 countries and shared his story with over 400 million people.
On his Facebook page, Vujicic wrote: “People say to me, ‘How can you smile? Then they realize there’s got to be something more to life than meets the eye if a guy without arms and legs is living a fuller life than I am.”
He not only motivates people to live fuller lives, but he also encourages them to accept Christ.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Vujicic spoke of his latest book “Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action.”
“I share about the depression I went through in 2010, and share that basically ‘unstoppable’ doesn’t mean bullet proof,” he stated. “When you can’t walk, God’s going to carry you.
“With me, in my life, I know that there are people who can get encouraged to see how God can use a man without arms and legs to be his hands and feet, but I want people to know that I am not a superhero, it is not about me, or how well I speak or articulate – it is the Spirit of God. It is an active relationship with him.”
In one post, Vujicic writes, “I love seeing a sea of hearts and souls wondering where this limbless man gets his joy from.”
Vujicic gets it. His joy doesn’t come from physical perfection, riches or other worldly gifts – it comes from knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – and he continues to share the secret of real joy around the world.
