I noticed the book had been tagged "religious/inspirational" after I'd downloaded it. I thought "well, alright, the story of a limbless guy qualifies as 'inspirational' to me." Early on it's revealed that Nick comes from an evangelical background, becoming an actu ...more
Throughout the book he uses examples from his own life and those he has come into contact with to show people how by changing your attitude, helping other ...more
Three reviews from our CALEB reviewers:
If Nick Vujicic’s autobiography Life Without Limits was required reading for every secondary school student I believe that the suicide rate for young people would plummet. If it could be made compulsory reading for every adult I believe the incidence of depression would also drop dramatically. If Life Without Limitswere mandatory reading for all new parents I believe both parents and children would benefit.
Nick includes lots of personal anecdotes plus a lot of inspirational, motivating and touching stories of others which makes reading the book sort of a roller-coaster emotional ride. At times you have a great laugh at other times your grateful for what you have and sometimes you're somewhere in between.
I liked the part at the end "Action Plan" in which some questions are provided for reflection and that serve as guiding s ...more
His life maxims are encapsulated in many of the chapter titles:
If you can't get a miracle, become one.
Attitude is altitude.
He says the most powerful attitudes are:
1. an attitude of gratitude
2. an attitude of action
3. an attitude of empathy
4. an attitude of forgiveness
Nick has a crazy sense of h ...more

"If you can't get a miracle, become one." -Nick Vujicic, Life without Limits
Life Without Limits is written by Nick Vujicic himself. It's about his life and the hardships he had to go through without both arms and both limbs.
I recommend this book to mostly teenagers and adults because not only does he explain all the life lessons, hardships, how he overcame them, through his words, I as the reader, can feel the encouragements and what the ways he overcame the proble ...more

There are two things I want to say about Life Without Limits. One is positive, the other one not so much.
1. It was extremely inspirational
2. It was extremely long
I’ll talk about number one first because... well, it’s number one. Duh. I cannot count how many times an experience or phrase or perspective Nick included that was awe inspiring. Seriously. I cannot. I don’t have enough fingers.
When I first started, all I could feel was sorry about Nick’s condition. He was born without legs or arms a ...more
Nick was born without arms or legs, yet he accomplishes more in his daily schedule than most of us might accomplish in a week! I was amazed at his ene ...more
Ada banyak orang yang hidupnya tidak bahagia karena mereka masih merasa “kekurangan”. Kurang kaya, kurang ganteng atau cantik, kurang langsing, kurang modis, kurang pandai, dan masih banyak kurang-kurang lainnya. Sebenarnya kunci untuk menjadi ...more
In Nick Vujicic's very own biography, he tells a story of how he, being as someone who was unfortunately born without arms and legs, has managed to overcome so many obstacles, struggles and difficulties that were present in his life. All his life as a child, he had thought that life wasn't worth living, that he was a burden to everyone around him and also that he himself was useless, but one thing he hadn't known was ...more
“My name is Nick Vujicic…I am twenty-seven years old. I was born without any limbs, but I am not constrained by my circumstances.” (pg. vii)
I’d seen Nick on various chat shows earlier in the year while he promoted his book and I remember thinking, what a remarkable man. So inspiring, witty and charismatic. I said to my partner, I would really like to read his book. Sure enough, a new edition of Life Without Limits was published in August 2012 and I jumped at the opportunity to read and ...more
