In 1982, Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Australia. He was born without arms and legs. There was no medical reason for it, but it just happened. Growing up was difficult. In addition to dealing with typical childhood issues like bullying and self-esteem, he also had to deal with severe depression and loneliness.

He struggled with the questions about why he was different than the other kids. His questions were never answered. But he realized at the age of 19, that he could  use his unique situation to speak to others. He had a strong faith in God and he knew that his story could help others overcome their struggles. He moved to California where he started the non-profit organization called: Life Without Limbs.

He wrote a powerful book about overcoming his challenges called: Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action. He has numerous videos on the internet (similar to the one above) from speeches he has given around the world. In this video, he talks about the role of his faith in staying positive: http://www.lifewithoutlimbs.org/knowing-god/

Discussing his motivation, Nick said: “I found the purpose of my existence, and also the purpose of my circumstance. There’s a purpose for why you’re in the fire.”
