I’m feeling very humbled by today’s video.
This isn’t about ways to create wealth or changing your mindset, this video is about recognizing your own unique value and focusing on your blessings and the power you have to impact the world in a wonderful way. one that every human being would benefit from watching. Every teenager should see this, if you’re a parent, do your children a huge kindness and show them this, let them realize they are perfect in all their imperfections, they have a unique purpose, they are your miracle and a gift to the world.

Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in 1982, to Serbian Orthodox parents. He was born without limbs. His devoted parents taught him to be thankful for all he had and to not focus on what he didn’t have but despite their love, encouragement, and support, Nick still had to deal with being different and limited by his disability.
At school, he was teased and bullied and by the age of 8 was contemplating suicide. At ten he attempted suicide as he just couldn’t take any more of the pain and hopelessness he felt. Whilst attempting to drown himself he had an image of his parents and brother crying at his graveside and realized the heartbreak he would bring them.
Nick understood that love is the most important thing of all and that he may not have limbs but what he did have in abundance is love and faith, and with those two things, he could do anything.
In this TED talk given in Serbia in 2012, Nick explains that when he found faith and was able to love himself he realized he has immense value, that he can touch lives and give them hope and faith just as we all can.
In his young life he has given countless motivational talks around the world, has written 2 books, has motivational DVDs, appeared in a short film that won him many awards including best actor, he has met presidents, is known by over 1 billion people and now is married with two small sons.
His message is – ‘ If I can dream big, then so can you, there are no walls, make your peace and you’ll make your walls, doors.’
To your inner peace and faith,
