Book Review: Life Without Limits

Have you ever attempted something that did not turn out the way you expected?  Perhaps you tried a couple more times with the same lackluster results.  As a result of the disappointment, something negative was embedded in your spirit that now limits you.  It has  made you squelch your dream.  Perhaps you have a chronic illness such as SLE, or a disability that limits you. You think your dream can never come true.  In the book, Life Without Limits, Nick Vujicic  addresses these very issues.

This is a motivational/inspirational book in the purest sense of the word.  You will follow a boy without limbs,  into manhood.  You will read about him overcoming challenge after challenge.   He shares  how he overcame   destructive thought processes that almost took his life.   Nick’s perseverance and drive helped him graduate from university with a double major and then propelled him into becoming a worldwide speaker and evangelist.  You can even see him on You  Tube doing extraordinary feats such as surfing.

In Life Without Limits, Nick  is gracious enough to let us into his world, his mind, and his heart so that we too may learn to overcome what hinders us.  In his conversational writing style, He brings us along step by step from accepting and loving  ourselves, to having the correct attitude to overcome our fears.  He teaches lessons on losing, change and trust.  There are tips on how to select the right dream, how to laugh at yourself, have fun in life and of course, how to make your dream come true.

Do you have a dream you long to see come true? I do. I have tried to make it happen several times in my life without great success.  Nick encourages me, to rise above the  things that would hold me back and persevere until it happens, or else find another dream. Nick had a dream.  You can read all about it in the book and you can see it  in the  short film The Butterfly Circus.

I must say, I initially  did not want to read this book. I thought it would be too heartbreaking for me.  Instead I found it extremely inspirational.  As I was nearing the end, I felt like I needed to start over again,  so that the lessons he was teaching could really sink in and take hold.

Nick is transparent and honest, courageously sharing with the world his life, with the hope of helping someone else live their own life more fully.  I give this book  5 stars.
