A Man Who Leads Without Limbs!

Most people who have no arms or legs struggle to find normality, but not Nick Vujicic, the 32-year-old president of motivational speech marketer Attitude is Altitude, was born without arms or legs. He was born without arms or legs and struggles to do everyday stuff like brush his teeth, tie his shoes, or get dressed. But he has done motivational stuff to look on the bright side. He has jumped of a plane with his dad and is a great swimmer. He is a great swimmer due to the fact that he doesn't have arms or legs to weigh him down. It surprised me when I saw he could swim due to the fact that he had no arms of legs, but when I saw that he could swim better than me I understood that a disability could be an advantage. He is the head of the company Attitude is Altitude and he gives motivational speeches around the world to disabled youth. He has a small foot on his left hip which helps him balance. He can type, pick things up between his toes and even kick a ball. Safe to say he can do most things normally. He said that confidence didn't always come to him and that he even attempted suicide after the bullying go so sever. But around 17 a school janitor looked him in the eyes and said, "Your going to be a motivational speaker." After that he decided that that was what he was going to do. My opinion is that this is awesome and a real moral booster to kids who have disabilities.
