I have times when everything seems like an uphill battle, and giving up on my dreams seems like the easiest option. I think most of us have these.
That's why I think it's so important that people like Nick Vujicic are out there. This is a man who was born without arms or legs, who wanted to commit suicide at the age of eight, who attempted it at the age of ten, but who's gone on to live an inspired life. He has a degree, he plays sport, he's loved and lost. He's now travels all over the world, giving talks about how anyone can take control of their lives.
I think it's his ability to laugh at his own disability is the reason he speaks to me. I don't feel like he's trying to guilt me into feeling grateful for what I have. He just shows me that it's never too late to achieve our full potential, or find meaning in life.
See for yourself.
