People often expect someone with a severe disability to beinactive, maybe even angry and withdrawn. I like to surprise them by showingthat I lead a very adventurous and fulfilling existence. Despite my physicallimitations, I'm living as though I have no limits.
I often ask myself the very question: "Nick, how can you be sohappy?" Here is my answer: I found happiness when I realized that asimperfect as I may be, I am the perfect Nick Vujicic. I am God's creation,designed according to His plan for me. That's not to say that there isn't roomfor improvement. I'm always trying to be better so I can better serve Him andthe world!
I do believe my life has no limits. I want you to feel the same way about yourlife, no matter what your challenges may be. As we begin our journey together,please take a moment to think about any limitations you've placed on your lifeor that you've allowed others to place on it. Now think about what it would belike to free of those limitations. What would your life be if anything werepossible?
I'm officially disabled, but I'm truly enabled because of my lack of limbs. Myunique challenges have opened up unique opportunities to reach so many in need.Just imagine what is possible for you!
Too often we tell ourselves we aren't smart enough or attractive enough ortalented enough to pursue our dreams. We buy into what others say about us, orwe put restrictions on ourselves. What's worse is that when you consideryourself unworthy, you are putting limits on how God can work through you!
When you give up on your dreams, you put God in a box. After all, you are Hiscreation. He made you for a purpose. Therefore your life cannot be limited anymore than God's love can be contained.
I have a choice. You have a choice. We can choose to dwell on disappointmentsand shortcomings. We can choose to be bitter, angry, or sad. Or when faced withhard times and hurtful people, we can choose to learn from the experience andmove forward, taking responsibility for our own happiness.
As God's child, you are beautiful and precious, worth more than all thediamonds in the world. You and I are perfectly suited to be who we were meantto be! Even still, it should always be our goal to become an even better personand stretch out boundaries by dreaming big. Adjustments are necessary along theway because life isn't always rosy, but it is always worth living. I'm here totell you that no matter what your circumstances may be, as long as you arebreathing, you have a contribution to make.
I can't put a hand on your shoulder to reassure you, but I can speak from theheart. However desperate your life may seem, there is hope. As bad ascircumstances appear, there are better days ahead. No matter how dire yourcircumstances may appear, you can rise above them. l'o wish for change willchange nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will changeeverything!
All events come together for the good. I'm certain of that because it's beentrue in my life. What good is a life without limbs? Just by looking at me,people know that I faced and overcame many obstacles and hardships. That makesthem willing to listen to me as a source of inspiration. They allow me to sharemy faith, to tell them they are loved, and to give them hope.
That is my contribution. It's important to recognize your own value. Know thatyou also have something to contribute. If you feel frustrated right now, that'sokay. Your sense of frustration means you want more for your life than you haveright now. That's all good. Often it's the challenges in life that show us whowe are truly meant to be.
