It was an inspiring video that send a clear message to all of us. Wanna know about his biodata? The following are copied from Wikipedia. Early life The first-born child in his devout Serbian Christian family, Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne with the rare Tetra-amelia disorder: limbless, missing both arms at shoulder level, and having one small foot with two toes protruding from his left thigh. Initially, his parents were devastated. Vujicic was otherwise healthy. Growing up His life was filled with difficulties and hardships. One was not being able to attend a mainstream school because of his physical disability, as the law of Australia required, even though he was not mentally impaired. During his schooling, the laws were changed, and Nick was one of the first disabled students to be migrated to a mainstream school. He learned to write using the two toes on his left "foot," and a special device that slid onto his big toe to grip. He also learned to use a computer and type using the "heel and toe" method (as demonstrated in his speeches). He can also throw tennis balls and answer the phone. He can also shave and get a glass of water (also demonstrated in speeches). Epiphany Being bullied at his school, Nick grew extremely depressed, and by the age of eight, started contemplating suicide. After begging God to grow arms and legs, Nick eventually began to realize that his accomplishments were inspirational to many, and began to thank God he was alive. A key turning point in his life was when his mother showed him a newspaper article about a man dealing with severe disability. This led him to realize he wasn't the only one with major struggles Career Nick graduated from college at the age of 21 with a double major in Accounting and Financial Planning. He began his travels as a motivational speaker, focusing on the topics that today's teenagers face. He also speaks in the corporate sector, although his aim is to become an international inspirational speaker, in both Christian and non-Christian venues. He regularly travels internationally to speak to Christian congregations, schools, and corporate meetings. He has spoken to over two million people so far, in twelve countries on four continents (Africa, Asia, <, as well as by writing books. His first book, planned for completion by the end of 2009, is to be called No Arms, No Legs, No Worries! His motivational DVD, Life's Greater Purpose,is available on the Life Without Limbs website. Most of the DVD was filmed in 2005, featuring a brief documentary about his home life, and how he does regular things without limbs. The second part of the DVD was filmed at his local church in Brisbane, and was one of his first professional motivational speeches. His motivational speeches can be seen on the Premiere Speakers Bureau Website. Vujicic currently lives in California. His secular DVD "No Arms, No Legs, No Worries" is available online through his corporate motivational speaking company "Attitude Is Altitude.

it makes me feel selfish. I am happy for Nick but it makes me feel bad for not trying my hardest in life.

I'm really motivated to try harder and never give up.

I saw this video clip many times. It's very motivational.
We are so fortunate and actually we should be able to achieve more because we are all unique creative people.
We are well equipped with many resources......that are the reasons we should do better!
If we fail after continous attempt, we got to go back to basic...
What are the cause of the failure?
Sometimes, that is just a learning curve...something that we wish might not in line with God's mission.
So that's why we are not getting.
Rely on God but not on your own, with your own ability, understanding and resource!

Nick is a good example.

God is best example, trust God, ask God, obey God,listen to God and surrender and rely on God!
