“Have you ever felt trapped in circumstances, then discovered that the only trap was your own lack of vision, lack of courage, or failure to see that you had better options?”  

- Nick Vujicic

What would you do if you had no limbs; no means of walking, lifting or touching the people you love and things around you? It sounds like a terrible situation to imagine and you could be forgiven for thinking that any meaningful kind of life would not be possible. Well, Nick Vujicic was born that way and through his example he shows us that the quality of life we lead doesn't depend on our circumstances, it depends on our attitude!

His whole life, Nick has lived with this extreme physical disability, yet he has become an inspiration for anyone who comes to learn about him. His message is teaching us that we have so little to complain about and so much to be grateful for in life, that if we want to be truly happy, we must make this our mindset.  

Too often in modern society we tend to depreciate ourselves, others and what we have in life, feeling down or depressed as a result. Nick’s deeply humbling example is helping anyone who watches him to put any petty complaints, dissatisfaction or self-pity firmly in it’s place.
