He swims. He surfs. He skateboards. He scuba-dives. . . . All without the convenience of arms and legs.
Meet Nick Vujicic.
Nick has overcome childhood rejection and ridicule, depression, and a suicide attempt to become living proof of the power of faith, hope, and love to conquer any challenge. He now runs his own nonprofit organization, Life Without Limbs, through which he travels around the world as an inspirational speaker. Nick recently penned his first book, Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life.
I’ve seen Nick speak in person, and the joy and charisma that he radiates shines through the pages of his book. Every page offers some nugget of wisdom, so keep a highlighter handy while reading. Through his faith in God and incredible strength of spirit, Nick offers encouragement and hope within and despite difficult circumstances, encouraging his readers to embrace a joyful and purposeful life, just as he has.
Life Without Limits is a buoyant and inspirational read, but has the potential to be life-changing.

I would also recommend an award-winning short film that he appeared in called The Butterfly Circus. You can find it here.
