Most of us who have access to the internet, have at some point or the other heard about Nick Vujicic’s (pronounced VOY-a-chich) or watched this remarkable man on YouTube. Nick was born without arms and legs and yet lives a full and inspiring life.
This booklet has been adapted from Nick’s full-length autobiography ‘Life Without Limits’ which tells his most inspiring story.
It was with great eagerness then that I offered to review this book. Frankly, I was disappointed that this was not Nick’s autobiography like I thought it was. It is an extract from his biography and seems more of a motivational capsule.
However, you are able to get a glimpse into Nick’s struggles to be ‘normal’ despite his disability. He shares his experience of the complete loss of hope that he went through in his teenage years. The love and faith of his family pulled from the brink. Ultimately, it was his personal discovery of hope through his experience of God that helped him turn his life around.
I was never crippled until I lost hope. Believe me, the loss of hope is far worse than the loss of limbs. – Nick Vujicic
Nick shares how his belief in the power of hope is reaffirmed by others – like the orphans from an earthquake in China, the survivors in Haiti, slumdwellers in Mumbai. All of these people live on hope and their life is not determined by their circumstances. He urges his readers to monitor their thoughts and to live out their dreams.
We need to take responsibility for our own happiness and success. Nick Vujicic
This booklet makes great reading for someone is going through a low phase.
As I mentioned before, I was a little disappointed that this wasn’t actually Nick’s complete story. However, reading this booklet I certainly want to read the complete book – Life Without Limits.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for the purpose of this review.
