Nick Vujicic Shows Us How to Get Up And Never Quit

Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. He admits to us there were plenty of times when all he wanted to do was give up. Nick didn't understand the point to his life and therefore wanted to end it. Thank goodness he's alive because he's shared his story with millions of people around the world. Nick Vujicic inspires us to keep on going.

Just the other day, someone forwarded me an article about a young woman venting because everybody is a workaholic at her office. She tells us how incredibly amazing it is that she gets in at 8am and works until 6:30pm everyday. In other words, she's asking for praise and sympathy for working normal hours. It shocks me how many people work just 40 hours or less a week and complain they can't get ahead.

Nick Vujicic Is An Inspiration: Get Back Up, Never Quit!

Whenever I feel like complaining about how unfair life is, I stop and think about people like Nick who have it just a little bit harder. Is he complaining? No. He is trying harder, and so shall I. Perhaps so shall we all! 

Let's eradicate the sense of entitlement that lingers among everyone of us; some more than others. We shall not whine about our jobs or complain why our love lives crumble. Let's take ownership of our own actions. If you are a complainer, please go somewhere else!

I hope this video of Nick Vujicic will inspire you to try harder every day. You have more than you think. Carpe diem!

    The people who inspire me not to quit are not the people who don’t quit. It’s the people who do quit, that inspire me to push on.

    So many people I’ve grown up with as a kid have seemingly already been pushed over a sort of moral event horizon. In giving up, they have no skills, no knowledge, and pretty much scrub it for the rest of their lives. It’s a scary thought.

    Most people give up because it takes no commitment to quit. Realizing how valuable my time is, even age the age of 21, I have to tell people. How can I quit? Of all the people who have sacrificed themselves for me to be where I am.. How can I let them down?

  2. that’s a great video. It’s amazing how people can overcome obstacles. It’s great that he’s helping to inspire and motivate others.

  3. I’ve actually had the pleasure of seeing Nick speak in person twice. He is super powerful and just an all around motivating. I’m really glad to see he’s made his way in to the PF world :)

  4. Sorry, but 8 am to 6:30 pm is longer than a normal workday, especially if you’re also working on other personal projects during “the other 8 hours” as suggested in the previous day’s post. 1 hour lunch? Ha! Does anyone even take lunch breaks anymore? And we wonder why relationships and healthy habits fall by the wayside. We worship the workaholic lifestyle to prove. . . what? That we’re somehow better than other people who actually have a life outside of work? Been there, done that, got the health problems, learned my lesson. Balance, people, balance.

    Almost every day in NYC, on streets pulsing with energy, excitement and wonder, I see people with major afflictions. Broken bodies, broken minds, broken spirits. So no matter what negative difficulties I’m currently plowing through, I’m constantly reminded of how amazingly fortunate I am.

  6. I saw this a year ago, my wife and I got misty eyed to say the least. Yes, puts a lot of life into perspective. After watching this video you begin to be more conscious of what people are complaining about, and in North America, it is unbelievably petty.

    Nick is an inspiration in the truest sense.

    It’s posts/videos like this that really put life and goals in perspective. I definitely agree with @Mike Hunt with statement. Your attitude when facing adversity is everything. It often determines the overall outcome of said adversity.

  8. Nick rocks! His message is so powerful because he is so real. Thank you for sharing this video because I had no idea who he is.

    As for the woman complaining working from 8am to 6:30pm and expecting praise. What a joke! Maybe if she working 7am to 7pm that MIGHT get a little sympathy from me. But for someone to believe a 9 and a half hour work day (I assume she takes a 1 hour lunch) is hard work, that’s so pitiful. It’s no wonder she was unemployed for 6 months before her current job. I pity the boss who hired her 6 months down the road.

    That was an intense video. There def is no complaining coming out of me after that. It just goes to show you that regardless your current situation that you can find things to be excited about. I dig that he can bring levity and find great things to attach himself to. It’s videos and stories like this that make me want to try a little harder too!

  10. It goes to show that attitude in the face of adversity is everything. And each of us will face our own struggle in the end, just because death is inevitable for all of us.

    When I see that video I don’t see a person who is disabled.

    I half expected Nick to pretend to pop a viagra and get up off the ground that way… just because he mixes in the jokes with his attitude.

    Good clip.


    1. @Mike Hunt: You say that when you look at Mr. Vujicic you “don’t see a person who is disabled.” I would ask you to think about this in a different way. Would you feel comfortable saying, “When I look at President Obama, I don’t see a man who is black” or “When I look at Yo Yo Ma, I don’t see a man who is Asian”?
      I hope you wouldn’t. To pretend that an essential aspect of a person’s identity doesn’t exist is in effect saying, “Why, you’re just like ME! You’re a human being despite being black/Asian/disabled!”
      Mr. Vujicic has a disability. He is not defined solely by the disability. However, it is a part of his identity. To say that you don’t see “a person who is disabled” implies that to be disabled is something to be not-seen, not-acknowledged. Or, worse, “overcome.”
      A couple of members of my family have disabilities, so I *do* have a dog in this particular hunt. What I’ve noticed consistently is that Americans tend to want what the disability rights community sardonically terms the “Supercrip” — the disabled person who is self-sufficient and cheerful and SUCH AN INSPIRATION. It’s as if the Supercrip exists only to inspire us — and, maybe, to make us feel glad that we’re not disabled.
      Yes, he can inspire if he chooses to make a living as an inspirational speaker. But he is not an object lesson.
