Nick Vujicic is one of the people I think of to encourage me when I struggle with negative thoughts and emotions.
He was born without arms or legs. His mother would not hold him when he was born. Since they did not have access to an ultrasound, his parents had no idea before he was born that he would come out that way.
Today, Nick is married and has a young son (pictured above). His YouTube videos have many millions of views and he encourages people around the world with his work and his life.
Nick's first book 'Life Without Limits - Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life was an instant best seller.
On his Facebook page, Nick offered a sneak peak at the first chapter of the book.

Welcome to my second book. My name is Nick Vujicic (pronounced Voo-yi-chich). Even if you did not read my first book, Life Without Limits, you may have seen my videos on YouTube or attended one of my appearances around the world as an inspirational speaker and evangelist.
As you probably know or can see from my cover photograph, I was born without arms or legs. What you cannot see but might have sensed already is that my lack of limbs has not kept me from enjoying great adventures, a fulflling and meaningful career, and loving relationships. In this book my goal is to share with you the unstoppable power of faith in action that has helped me create my own ridiculously good life, despite my disabilities.
Putting faith in action is about believing and achieving. It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents, your purpose, and, most of all, in God’s love and His divine plan for your life.
This book was inspired by the many people of all ages from around the world who’ve asked me for advice and guidance in dealing with specifc challenges in their own lives. They know from my speeches that I haveovercome adversities, including my youthful thoughts of suicide, concerns about being able to support myself and whether I’d ever fnd a woman to love me, my experiences with bullying, and other issues and insecurities that are not unique to me by any means.
