The life story of the amazingly gutsy Nick Vujicic, who despite being born without arms or legs has an unbelievably infectious zest for life and now travels the world as highly successful motivational speaker. This new edition includes a Personal Action Plan. LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS is the story of gutsy Nick Vujicic, an amazing 28-year-old Aussie born without arms or legs who is now an internationally successful inspirational speaker. Packed full of wisdom, testimonials of his faith and laugh-out-loud humour, Nick tells of life in his 'Chesty Bond' body, his visit to Africa at the age of 20 where he gave away $20,000 of his life savings to the poor, and raised another $20,000 for them on the side, and how he learned to surf, skateboard, dive and more. Noting that 'perfection isn't always perfect' and that 'brokenness can be a good thing', Nick shows how he learned to accept what he could not control and focus instead on what he could. He encourages everyone to find their life's purpose and, whatever their obstacles, go for it. He's already appeared in an acclaimed short film doing his own stunts, and his zest for life is unbelievably infectious. This new edition contains Nick's Personal Action Plan, a tool any reader can use to more precisely determine and track their individual destiny. Winner, 2011 CALEB Prize for faith inspired writing, Reviewer's Choice. Finalist, 2011 CALEB Prize for faith inspired writing, Memoir and Bookseller's Choice categories.

Nick Vujicic

Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced VOO-yee-cheech). Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs - a rare condition known as phocomelia. Before his birth, three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, Nick's parents Dushanka and Borislav were destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.

The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life.

Nick has two vestigial feet, with one of which he learned to operate a wheelchair, computer keyboard, and mobile phone. He was able to graduate from Griffith University at 21, with a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well. Nick holds to a born-again faith in Christ and to the truth of the Bible as God's Word to man.

Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has travelled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today this dynamic young evangelist has accomplished more than most people achieve in a lifetime. He's an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. In 2007, Nick made the long journey from Australia to southern California where he is the president of the international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, which was established in 2005. In 2012, Nick married Kanae Miyahara, and they make their home in California with their two sons.

Nick says, "If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!"

Well Titled
4 stars By Julie, Mar 25 2015
One has to admire the courage of this man, and ask the question: 'How does he summon it?', especially in today's 'picture perfect' society, where the body beautiful reigns. The book well answers the question, and of course, it's not a silver bullet answer. Nick has a deep faith, solid family support and a purpose in life that is proven to lead to happiness: the service of others. We can truly thank God for people such as Nick, who don't give up despite all seeming to be against them. I would recommend this book to anyone facing seemingly insurmountable problems. It makes a great gift, even to those who don't profess any faith themselves - the mix of life story (which Nick tells with great honesty) and motivational passages will not offend, only inspire! Highly recommended.

5 stars By hannah, Mar 31 2013
Ever since the night Nick spoke at my youth group, I've been inspired by him, so it was with great anticipation that I bought this book, his biography. I wasn't disappointed. He writes with a gut-wrenching honesty about his life and the path it's taken to get to where he is today. But more than just a biography, Nick uses this book to challenge readers to not let anything stop them from reaching their dreams. It's real, it's tough, it's beautiful. After reading this, you'll never look at life the same.
