If ever there was a real ‘meta-human’, it’s got to be Nick Vujicic. This best-selling author and motivational speaker has overcome suffering that most people couldn’t even imagine, and that’s exactly why we believe in him.
Vujicic was born without limbs. He has never experienced what it’s like to hold his child in his arms or embrace his wife, however through his passion and his zest for life despite all obstacles – he embraces the world. The key to Vujicic’s strong sense of self may be due to his upbringing and the determination of his parents to integrate him into a normal school system with his peers. Of course, he knew he was different, but they strived to ensure that he never felt excluded. Pretty amazing parents, eh?
As a pre-teen, life got tough for Vujicic and he struggled with depression. He couldn’t see a way forward or indeed – a way through. However his love and dedication to his family pulled him out the other side. And it looks like the other side has been one hell of a ride for this inspiring speaker.
Vujicic has now traveled extensively across the world, experiencing more of life each year than most people do in 50 of them. Although he’s a pretty religious guy, he doesn’t preach in a way that alienates those who don’t share his beliefs. He regularly presents on a range of topics from anti-bullying to positive living and leaves each person he speaks to with a smile that’s a little bit brighter.
This guy is an entrepreneur and his business is making people happy. Does it get any better than that?
