Nick Vujicic quotes page 2
Keep moving ahead because action creates momentum, which in turn creates unanticipated
Risk, then, is not just part of life. It is life. The place between your comfort zone and your
dream is where life takes place. It's the high-anxiety zone, but it's also where you discover
who you are. Karl Wallenda, patriarch of the legendary high-wire-walking family, nailed it
when he said: "Being on the tightrope is living; everything else is waiting."
Make giving your mission.
In life you have a choice: Bitter or Better? Choose better, forget bitter.
You fail. I fail. The best of us fail, and the rest of us fail too. Those who never rise from
defeat often see failure as final. What we all need to remember is that life is not a pass-fail
test. It's a trial-and-error process. Those who succeed bounce back from their bonehead
mistakes because they view their setbacks as temporary and as learning experiences.
I know for certain that God does not make mistakes, but he does make miracles. I am one.
You are too.
I'm just one small, tiny example. Pick any true-life hero, whether it's Mother Teresa, Mahatma
Gandhi, or the Reverend Martin Luther King and you'll find someone who had to weather
adversity - prison, violence, even the threat of death - but held on to the belief that their
dreams could prevail.
I realize I may not have hands to hold my wife's hand, but when the time comes, I'll be able
to hold her heart. I don't need hands to hold her heart.
Remember - action brings reaction. When you are tempted to abandon your dreams, push
yourself to continue one more day, one more week, one more month, and one more year. You
will be amazed at what happens when you refuse to quit.
Life may not be going well for you now, but as long as you are here, as long as you press
forward, anything is possible.
One of the best ways I've found for holding on even when our prayers are not answered is to
reach out to others. If your suffering is a burden, reach out to ease that of someone else and
bring hope to them.
The challenges in our lives are there to strengthen our convictions. They are not there to run
Each of us hopes to put our talents and knowledge to use for benefits beyond paying the bills.
At first I was not willing to confront that what was really wrong with me wasn't my body, it
was the limits I put on myself and my limited vision of the possibilities for my life.
I never met a bitter person who was thankful. Or a thankful person who was bitter.
Some injuries heal more quickly if you keep moving. The same is true of setbacks in life.
Perhaps you lose your job. A relationship might not work out. Maybe the bills are piling up.
Don't put your life on hold so that you can dwell on the unfairness of past hurts. Look instead
for ways to move forward.
Remember this: God has a truly great purpose for your life! Live it without limits!
Life without limbs? Or life without limits?
I was so excited that there were scientists and inventors intent on providing me with limbs
someday. But I became all the more determined to do whatever I could without waiting for
someone else to find something that would improve my life - I had to find my own answers.
Life isn't about having, it's about being. You could surround yourself with all that money can
buy, and you'd still be as miserable as a human can be. I know people with perfect bodies
who don't have half the happiness I've found. On my journeys I've seen more joy in the slums
of Mumbai and the orphanages of Africa than in wealthy gated communities and on sprawling
estates worth millions.
It's easier to have no arms and legs than to be a kid from a broken home.
We can't, and we should not, compare sufferings. We come together as a family of God, hand
in hand. And then together coming and standing upon the promises of God, knowing that no
matter who you are, no matter what you're going through, that God knows it, He is with you,
He is going to pull you through.
