What the guy with no arms and no legs said to the high school kids

Sometimes life throws us a rotten tomato. It's easy to blame external circumstances when we fail to meet our goals. Sometimes we live down to others' expectations of us. Sometimes we collapse into a debilitating depression, unable perhaps even to get out of bed. Nick Vujicic had every reason to give up on life from the get-go, but he didn't. Look at his face. Listen to his voice.

People say to me, "How can you smile?" ... Then they realize "There’s got to be something more to life than meets the eye if a guy without arms and legs is living a fuller life than I am."

Attitude is Altitude

Whatever you think is keeping you down, isn't. You're keeping yourself down. Get up. It's the Ordinary thing to do.
