Life Without Limbs - Nick Vujicic (biography and videos)

Updated on February 19, 2014

Nick Vujicic was born in a Christian family in Melbourne, Australia on the date 4th December, 1982 as the first-born child in his dedicated Serbian Christian household. From his birth onwards, he was cursed with the terrible and unusual Tetra-Amelia disorder: limbless, lacking both arms at shoulder joint, and having one little foot with 2 toes bulging from his left thigh. There were no time or admonitions for his parents to prepare themselves for this tragedy..

His life was full with troubles and hardships, and as he says "There comes times in life when there will be several violent storms and you may not be able to curb them, as often as they are going to come. But God is there and that's why I can be here and smile to you." We can watch him successful, with joyfulness, in the battle with life daily. It was very tough for him to get practiced to it in early schooling years due to his physical disability, but with boosts and encouragements from his well wishers and parents he overlooked the bullies and started making friends. Soon he and the others recognized that no matter how peculiar he was on the outside, he was just similar to everyone else from inside. As time went on he learned the art of writing with the help of the toes on his left "foot", he acquired the skills to use and work on computer using the method "heel and toe", and he could also respond to telephone calls, throw tennis balls, get a glass of water & he was even able to shave as he demonstrated in his demonstrations and speech presentations.

An Interview - Nick Vujicic: Life Without Limbs

Nick Vujicic Motivational Presentation and Speech

Nick completed his graduation from college at the age of 21 with double major in the branch Accounting and Financial planning and then he started his journeys and travels as a motivational & inspirational speaker, concentrating on the matters that today's teenagers face. He has spoken to more than a few million individuals so far and he continues to do so, because he realizes that his accomplishments were inspirational to many. He wishes to promote his words by the medium television shows such as the "The Oprah Winfrey Show", as well as by publishing books. His first book has already been completed in 2009 and is titled "No Arms, No Legs, and No Worries!" He also desires to become the greatest witness, that can be, of God's love and trust, and to be used as a vessel in both Christian and non-Christian venues. He even has 2 DVD's available with his inspirational speeches.

I would like to conclude with some of his thoughts : "Along the time you may fall down like this (he falls down on the stage). So what do you do when you drop down...?!!! I'm telling you that there are sometimes in life when you fall down and you feel like you don't have adequate strength to rise, do you think you have trust? Because I tell you I am down here... face down ... and I do not have any arms any legs ( he is down on the stage), it should be unattainable for me to get back up, but if I fail 100 times and give up, do you think that I will ever be able to get back up... NO... but if I fail I'll try over again and again, and again. I only want you to know that it's NOT the end... It counts that how you are going to end. Are you going to end STRONG & HARD? You WILL find that STRENGTH to GET BACK UP... like this... (He gets back up using his head and his 'leg'), I love living life".
