I truly admire his positive attitude towards life. View all 4 comments. Nick shares his story of attempted suicide as a young kid, and if you are going through similar circumstances, then you must read this book As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally as well as physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability and, at the age of seventeen, started his Nicholas James Vujicic Serbian:

I have to admit though that I took much longer to finish this book that I'd have liked; mostly because I had been busy with work.
By going through different life circumstances, I always didn't like those kind of ppl who always complain about something but just being lazy, not confident or just leave everything for tomorrow. If u are scared of something in this life and don't know how to go through, vuhicic be scared to ask for help.
He wanted to give up in the beginning.
When his mom first gave birth to him, she refused to look at her child, afflicted with deformities. However, throughout the book there are also messages from Nick about how to live life to the fullest and to believe inyourself.
I laughed out loud when Nick told of the time he posed as a mannequin in a shopfront window and when he hid in the overhead luggage compartment of a plane.
Nick Vujicic was born without arms or legs.
Just imagine what is possible for you! Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Penuturannya sederhana namun mengena, menarik dan jauh dari menjemukan. I've also seen a number of his YouTube videos, but this is the first of his books I've read.
Well written story of the guy on the YouTube videos with no arms or legs. I first heard the story of Nick Vujicic in a documentary years ago! Krn itu saya bertekad mau mendapatkan bukunya saat itu saya tidak tahu bhw buku ini sudah diterjemahkan oleh Gramedia Pustaka Utama - thanks Godjadi betapa senangnya saya menemukan buku ini walaupun dgn kondisi preloved. Alih-alih menyerah terhadap keadaan, Nick justru memilih untuk memanfaatkan kekurangannya sebagai suatu kelebihan.
From learning to swim and surf, to motivational speaking to practical jokes- his anecdotes were highly engaging. In his youth Nick himself despaired about ever having a "normal" life, even to the point that he attempted suicide. Even without limbs, he is an excellent swimmer, scuba diver, drummer, he is extremely independent physically and financially, he also supports the community by being a motivational speaker and being associated with many philanthropy organizations.
His very existence is a statement that says "being disabled doesn't make me any less capable, any less happy". I'd say that he has a more happy, fulfilled, life than most people with arms and legs do, because Christ lives within him.
My only complaint is it's quite short - I finished reading it in one sitting and it left me hungry for more stories he could isn. He tapped into his faith to ask himself what his purpose is on earth, without limbs, no doubt that he had times where he wanted to end his life, to stop the bullying and just not exist anymore, but he twisted that hatred that people had toward vuiicic and made the best of it.
Mungkin banyak hal yang tidak enak sedang terjadi dalam hidup anda saat ini. He could made this book more emotional by potraying the darker picture of his sufferings but he wrote it in a lighter mood, cracking jokes on himself, adding humorous element too. I could not believe how positive he was! I highly recommend this book!
Fix field "sort by title".
Well worth reading, well written and easy to read, ironically relatable. Terlepas buku ini bagus utk pengembangan diri, tetapi tidak terlalu bagus dari sisi biografi-nya. But of course they think that their problem is the worst one and it's just to them life turned ass, while all the other who struggle of hunger, dying from cancer, don't have legs or hands living as they think perfect life.
So, I found it difficult to rate this book because Nick is a very likeable, generous and passionate person and I enjoyed reading about his life.
I personally enjoyed how Nick could take what he had been given and not ask for crowds of sympathy but for crowds of people who are in need of limitee life examples of how to overcome their current situation. What can a man without arms and without legs possibly achieve in life?
This book not only inspired me, but lmiites quirky comments on his own physical appearance made me laugh and sometimes even shed a tear or two.
