Life Without Limits

This is probably one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. My grandma lent it to me, and I absolutely loved it!! Nick Vujicic tells of his struggles and victories of being born limbless. He explains how he learned to cope without the use of arms or legs, which was quite interesting. If you think about it, even losing one limb would be hard to adjust to, much less all of them. Yet Nick rose above and now he is a well-known public speaker. In his book, he lists the eleven things he needed to live without limbs:

  1. A powerful sense of purpose
  2. Hope so strong that it cannot be diminished
  3. Faith in God and the infinite possibilities
  4. Love and self-acceptance
  5. Attitude with altitude
  6. A courageous spirit
  7. Willingness to change
  8. A trusting heart
  9. Hunger for opportunities
  10. The ability to assess risks and to laugh at life
  11. A mission to serve others first
(Quoted from his book, pg ix)

He dedicates one chapter to each aspect, which shows the book's focus. Over all, this is an extremely uplifting and inspiring book, which I think everyone should read at least once.
