“Life Without Limits” By Nick Vujicic

Life Without Limits

I got this book in the mail on Monday at 5pm and I finished it by 1pm on Wednesday. I really enjoyed it. I did not know anything about Nick Vujicic before I got the book, but after reading about his life, it definitely inspires me.

Its not just a book that talks about his limitations but it talks about his opportunities. It’s not just about his disability but also all the things that he is able to do. I love how he shares about the disadvantages he had growing up and how he developed ways to move forward and make the best life possible.

I love how he not only talks about his life but he shares nuggets of wisdom about what he has learned in life. On page 29 he says “Life is not about having, it’ about being.” That is awesome and true. It’s not about having and accumulating more stuff; it’s about becoming a better person. Life is about the ‘who’ more then its about all the ‘what’s’. It’s about who we are becoming daily and not what we accumulating.

I also love the thought he had about our actions. He said that  ‘action brings reaction’. I love that thought. That we need to do something for something else to happen. That we cannot just wait around and hope for change, but we need to become the change.  We need to change the way we think. If we can change the way that we think then we can change the way we live. He said in the book, “by changing our attitudes, we can change our lives.” That’s amazing coming from a man with no arms and legs.

I really enjoyed this book and I loved how it challenged me to become more positive to the world around me. I need to be more grateful for what I have and to be more open to opportunities. There is more for all us, we just need to change our mindsets.
