“I know that there is no such thing as luck, chance or coincidence for ‘bad’ things
which happen in our life. I had complete peace knowing that God won’t let anything happen to us in our life unless He has a good purpose for it at all”.
– Nick Vujic
These highly inspiring lines are given by a motivational speaker Nick Vujic. At the first look nothing is special in these lines but what is most interesting is the reality behind, that Nick vujic was born without limbs. As you can imagine, he faced many challenges and obstacles for survival.
On the morning of the 4th of December 1982 Nick’s parent were shocked! Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! Nick’s parents had strong concern and evident fears of what kind of life he would be able to lead.
There were a few people who assumed that because of Nick’s physical disability it meant that he would also be mentally disabled. The law in Australia didn’t allow Nick to be integrated into a main-stream school. God did miracles and gave his mother the strength to fight for the law to be changed. Nick Vujicic was one of the first disabled students to be integrated into a main-stream school.
Nick liked going to school, and just tried to live life like everyone else. But it was in his early years of school where he encountered uncomfortable times of feeling rejected and was bullied because of his physical difference. According to Nick ‘One of the most difficult things to do is to be happy with what God gives you, be it your body, your money, or the people around you’.
Due to his emotional struggles a passion of sharing his story and experiences has implanted in him to help others cope with whatever challenge they have in their life. Nick truly believed that God would heal him so he could be a great testimony of His Awesome Power. Later on he was given the wisdom to understand that if we pray for something, if it’s God’s will, it’ll happen in His time. If it’s not God’s will then He has something better.
Nick says I am 26 years old now and have completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Financial planning and Accounting. I am also a motivational speaker and love to go out and share my story and testimony wherever opportunities become available. I have developed talks to relate to and encourage students through topics that challenge today’s teenagers. I am also a speaker in the corporate sector. I have many dreams and goals that I have set to achieve in my life. In recent years, Nick has learnt to become independent and can now take care of all his personal needs.
Remember, Nick’s story is all about being optimistic towards your life. God has blessed you with so many qualities it’s only you who can make use of your capabilities.
