Last week I had the honor and privilege of spending some time with one of the most inspirational and motivational people I’ve ever met, Nick Vujicic. In case you don’t know his story, here’s a quick overview: Nick was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, which is a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. During his adolescent years, he was teased and bullied unmercifully by his classmates which caused him to seriously consider suicide a couple of times.
Instead of giving up and giving in to his situation, he set out to show the world that through his faith, anything is possible. He has gone on to build a multimillion dollar charity, Life Without Limbs, and has inspired people all over the world with his motivational messages. He also spends much of his time sharing his story with children in schools to help combat bullying and self esteem issues.
Instead of making excuses, Nick chooses to make things happen. He has no arms or legs yet he has accomplished many great things and has added immeasurable value to people all over the globe.
So my question to you is, what’s your excuse?
