“Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action”
Mike’s special guest on “Quest for Character” was Nick Vujicic, author of “Unstoppable”.
A life without arms and legs - IMAGINE! What if you couldn't wrap your arms around the ones you love? How about not being able to walk, dance, run, or even stand? Now envision the worst case scenario: living with no arms and no legs. What would you do? Would you still search for PURPOSE and meaning? How would it affect your ATTITUDE towards life and those around you? Would you let the pressure and despair of your circumstance taint your CHARACTER, or would you move forward with honor? Would you have the strength to repeatedly tell yourself, "NEVER GIVE UP"?
Meet Nick Vujicic. He was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia. Without any medical explanation or warning, Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced 'Vooy-cheech') came into the world with neither arms nor legs. Having had an uneventful pregnancy and no family history to expect this condition, indescribable shock filled the hospital room that pivotal 4th of December day. A limbless son was not what nurse Dushka Vujicic, and her husband Pastor Borris Vujicic had been expecting. How would their son live a normal happy life? What could he ever do or become when living with what the world would see as such a massive disability? Little did they know, the little beautiful limbless baby would one day inspire and motivate people from all walks of life.
Millions around the world recognize the smiling face and inspirational message of Nick Vujicic. Despite being born without arms or legs, Nick’s challenges have not kept him from enjoying great adventures, a fulfilling and meaningful career, and loving relationships. Nick has overcome trials and hardships by focusing on the promises that he was created for a unique and specific purpose, that his life has value and is a gift to others, and that no matter the despair and hard times in life, God is always present. Nick credits his success in life to the power that is unleashed when faith takes action.
But how does that happen? In Unstoppable Nick addresses adversity and difficult circumstances that many people face today.
