No excuses – Be thankful, be happy

Nick Vujicic has no arms and no legs, yet is thankful for what he has, not bitter for what he doesn’t have. He keeps getting back up every day and living his dream life, inspiring others, traveling and being happy.

Watch this video, be inspired, and never let any obstacles prevent you from loving and enjoying your incredible life.

As the video says “We are put in situations to build our character, not to destroy us.” Use challenges as an opportunity to grow and inspire others.

  1. Always a favourite to watch this man and his heart’s courage to give, simply give.
    Always moves me one step forward…
    and my only frustrations in life have been about not being able to truly give my gifts as well,
    so he speaks directly to that.
    Best to you all,
    G Sid

  9. The absolute second I saw the subject title of Mark and Amanda’s “Amazing Self” e-mail: [Inspirational Video] – No Excuses…

    I knew it had to be a video of “Nick Vujicic”. Because there is NO GREATER inspiration in the world, nay UNIVERSE, than this wonderful human being.

    Whether we see Nick or another person that has a life challenge… We should all remember this little phrase: “But For The Grace of God… There Go “I”…”

    Saying that each time you observe or even have thoughts about someone with a life’s challenge, whatever that may be, will help us all develop and or hone our own empathy. And… Having such empathy can lead to tolerace that could lead to the kind of acceptance that puts a halt to all WAR! Since there have only been 26 “world-wide war free” years in the written history of mankind… What better goal than to aspire to add just one more “war free” year in our lifetime.

    Blessings to each and every one of you!!!

    And thank you to Mark and Amanda!
