This is Nick Vujicic and his son, Kiyoshi James Vujicic. Nick was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, which means he was born with no limbs. He is a successful international motivational speaker and travels globally to give speeches.
At age 8, Nick thought and contemplated about suicide because of all the bullying he had went through throughout elementary school. At age 10 he tried to drown himself. It was a failed attempt but his parents’ love prevented him from following through.
He went through many struggles, from trying to learn how to pick up a phone, to learning how to deal with not playing soccer when he was in grade school. At one point in time, his mother showed him a newspaper article about a man suffering from a severe disability and he realized he should embrace his lack of limbs.
Nick now uses his disability to inspire younger generations and to encourage them,
"The choice that we have is to either give up or keep on going."
"You take steps in this direction, you take steps in that direction, and you sort of get lost along the way. And sometimes you fall down… It should be impossible for me to get back up. As long as I try to get up, there’s always that chance that I can get back up."
"I don’t care if you’re fat, short, tall, man. I DON’T CARE. I don’t care what you’re good at, I don’t care what you’re not good at. But I’m going to tell you that you’re awesome just the way you are…"
"You are worth more than diamonds. You can do something. You can live. Life!"
