No Arms, No Legs, No Excuses: Finding Success in Spite of Any Obstacles

Presenter: Nick Vujicic

Expand to read full details
Nick Vujicic was born in 1982 and, to the shock of his parents and doctors – and without any medical conclusion at the time – he had no arms or legs. The challenges seemed impossible. But, from a difficult early relationship with his parents to being bullied and even attempting suicide as a teenager due to his unique circumstances, Nick learned to never give up.

As a teenager, he began trading stocks and options and investing in real estate. He became successful in business and reframed his purpose. Despite what seemed like insurmountable odds, he’s become one of the world’s most successful, most inspirational keynote speakers, traveling to 78 countries, presenting on over 3,500 stages – to crowds as large as 800,000 – and meeting 25 presidents, prime ministers and vice presidents. His message? You can find your purpose and you can create value – in your life, your business and your relationships. Your hurdles may be different than Nick’s, but you can overcome them, just like he has. And you can live a life of happiness and prosperity, just like he has.

In this session, you’ll learn:
  • How to harness the same dedication, commitment and perseverance to achieve success
  • The science of cultivating resilience in your personal life and in your business
  • How to live a life without limits
  • How to reframe your fears and use them as motivation and fuel for success
  • And so much more!
