Let’s stroll down memory lane again and look back on Nick Vujicic’s motivational speech that has tremendously inspired millions of people worldwide.
Nick Vujicic and his Motivational Speech, “NEVER GIVE UP”
We’re on the same boat if you say you cried after watching the above clip. Born without arms and legs, Nicholas James Vujicic had every right to be bitter about his state. At age 10, thoughts of suicide clouded his mind but soon retracted upon remembering his parents’ unconditional love. Consequently, he decided to look past his disability and chose to see the bigger picture. What followed was a flow of blessing with him being the channel as he traveled ‘round the world offering words of hope.
“I love my life, because I’ve seen my purpose.”
Internationally, he’s affectionately equated as an inspirational figure. Through his initiative Life Without Limbs, he does the work of an evangelist: encouraging millions to not be paralyzed by their present distress and leading them to overcome life’s hurdles by looking unto Jesus.
Now 35 years of age, Nick’s having the best days of his life with his beautiful wife, Kanae Miyahara. The couple had four healthy children: two boys and twin daughters. They currently reside in Southern California.
“There’s no point in being complete on the outside when you’re broken in the inside.”
