I know, I don't have hands to hold my wife's hands, but I don't need hands to hold her heart.
We may have absolutely no control over what happens to us, but we can control how we respond. If we choose the right attitude, we can rise above whatever challenges we face.
It’s a lie to think you’re not good enough. It’s a lie to think you’re not worth anything.
Just because I don’t understand god’s plans does not mean that he is not with me.
If a man without arms and legs is dreaming big why can’t we, why can’t we all?
Don’t put your life on hold so you can dwell on the unfairness of past hurts.
I learned very early that asking for help is possible and necessary. No matter whether your body is ordinary or not, there are things that you cannot overcome alone.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
To wish for change will change nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will change everything!
To pursue your dreams you have to take action. Move it or lose it. Act or be acted upon. If you don’t have what you want, consider creating what you want. God will light the path. Your chance of a lifetime, the door to your dreams is open. Your path to a purpose may present itself at any moment. Be ready for it. Do all you need to do. Learn all you need to know. If no one comes knocking, beat down a few doors. One day you’ll step into the life you desire.
If we went by the world’s definition of who I’m supposed to be because I look weird… ‘Well, surely, this guy can’t have a productive life, surely, he doesn’t have a sense of humor. Surely, he can’t love life.’ We stereotype people in this world. And so… if the world thinks you’re not good enough, it’s a lie, you know. Get a second opinion.
I think the biggest disability that we have as human beings is unbelief, everything starts with a vision, and a man without vision dies.
Have you ever felt trapped in circumstances, then discovered that the only trap was your own lack of vision, lack of courage, or failure to see that you had better options?
Don’t give up. And know that there is always someone out there who believes in you and who loves you just the way that you are.
In life you have a choice: bitter or better? Choose better, forget bitter.
Act in a such a way as to guarantee that your own actions inspire and empower you.
If we look at our lives and concentrate on things that we don’t have or wish to have, that doesn’t change the circumstances. The truth is that we have to focus on what we have and make the best out of it.
If you can’t get a miracle, become one.
One of the greatest joys in this life is the feeling you get when you realise you’re a part of something larger than your own life and personal experiences.
This life is full of great experiences if we only give it a shot.
Those who think of themselves as losers are the ones who don’t understand how close to success they were when they gave up.
If you are rejected – accept, if you feel unloved – let go, if they choose someone or something over you – move on, remember that in every no from someone is a yes to someone better.
When faced with any difficulty, try to find the pure joy that’s contained there.
It’s a form of bullying, in my opinion, to make sure that your kid gets the best grades, the best jobs and all that sort of stuff. I just want my child to be happy. I want him to do his best and trust God in the rest, but I’m not going to bully him.
Bullies want to abuse you. Instead of allowing that, you can use them as your personal motivators. Power up and let the bully eat your dust.
I don’t want to be someone’s reason to hate their life. I want to be someone’s reason to seek something more in their life.
Risk, then, is not just part of life. It is life. The place between your comfort zone and your dream is where life takes place.
You do not know what you can achieve until you try.
If I fail, I try again, and again and again. If YOU fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters HOW you are going to FINISH. Are you going to finish strong?
I encourage you to accept that you may not be able to see a path right now, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there.
The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.
Whether your life is happy or not is your own choice. Many people think I can’t live a normal life because I don’t have arms or legs. I could choose to believe that and give up trying. I could stay at home and wait for others to take care of me. Instead, I choose to believe that I can do anything, and I always try to do things my own way. I choose to be happy. I am happy because I am always thankful.
God won’t allow anything to happen in your life if it’s not for your good.
If you’re not ready to accept yourself, then you’re even less ready to accept other people.
If you aren’t where you want to be or you haven’t achieved all you hope to achieve, the reason most likely resides not around you but within you. Take responsibility and then take action.
Pain is pain. Broken is broken. Fear is the biggest disability of all. And will paralyze you more than you being in a wheelchair.
Having faith, beliefs, and convictions is a great thing, but your life is measured by the actions you take based upon them.
I never met a bitter person who was thankful. Or a thankful person who was bitter.
You have to understand that sometimes it is impossible to receive the answers you’re looking for right away.
Some injuries heal more quickly if you keep moving.
If we all could be a true friend to someone, praying and encouraging one person somehow, that’s a first step in being part of making the world a better place.
There are two types of risk in life: the danger of trying and the danger of not trying.
Money can’t heal your heart. Money can’t give you purpose. I don’t want arms and legs, I want purpose. I don’t want arms and legs, I want peace. And I don’t want arms and legs, I want to be a miracle for someone else.
You do not have to dream up ambitious projects in order to sow good seeds. Even small things can mean a lot to someone.
We all start with zero. We all start at the beginning. Do not give up.
Keep moving ahead because action creates momentum, which in turn creates unanticipated opportunities.
I was never crippled until I lost hope.
If you need a friend, become someone else’s. If you don’t have hope, give hope to others.
My hope is that when people who are in pain see that I have a joyful life, they will think, if Nick – without arms and legs – is thankful, then I will be thankful for today, and I will do my best.
No matter who you are, no matter what you’re going through, God knows it. He is with you. He is going to pull you through.
Love does not care about what you can or cannot do, who you are and who you cannot be. True love looks straight into your heart!
You may not have a clue of what lies ahead, but it’s better to act on life than simply let life act on you.
Think of your attitude towards the world as something similar to a remote control. If you do not like the program you are watching, you just grab the remote and switch the TV to another program. So it is with your attitude towards life: when you aren’t satisfied with the results, change your approach — regardless of what problem you are facing.
Often people ask how I manage to be happy despite having no arms and no legs. The quick answer is that I have a choice. I can be angry about not having limbs, or I can be thankful that I have a purpose. I chose gratitude.
Often times we feel like either we can’t make a world of difference, or we feel that it’s not going to change anything anyway. The truth is you can change someone’s day, you can change someone’s life, but you have to show up and do what you got to do to actually see any fruit coming from it.
The challenges in our lives are there to strengthen our convictions. They are not there to run us over.
When you can’t get a miracle, you can still be a miracle for someone else.
The victory is not when I stand up. The victory is when I realize that I cant’t do it on my own.
Life can be good, if we decide that it is.
There are no short and easy paths to a long and lasting happiness.
The greatest rewards come when you give of yourself. It’s about bettering the lives of others, being part of something bigger than yourself, and making a positive difference.
You can either be angry for what you don’t have or thankful for what you do have. Do your best and God will do the rest.
I know for certain that God does not make mistakes, but he does make miracles. I am one. You are, too.
Adjustments are necessary along the way because life isn’t always rosy, but it is always worth living…
The day you think you have reached your fullest potential is the day that you haven’t.
If you’re not happy single, your not gonna be happy married.
Take small steps in the right direction. No matter how small your steps, keep moving forward towards your goals.
I will try one hundred times to get up, and if I fail one hundred times, If I fail and I give up will I ever get up? No! If I fail I’ll try again and again. But I want to tell you, it’s not the end.
We shouldn’t wait for happiness to simply appear as soon as we reach a certain goal or acquire a desired object. Happiness should surround us all the time. And it will, if you live in mental, psychological, emotional and physical harmony.
Focus on your dream and do everything in your power! You have the power to change your life circumstances.
But there is one thing better than going to Heaven and that is to encourage at least one other person to go with me.
I am gonna try again and again, because the moment I give up, is the moment I fail.
Life is not about having, it’s about being. You can surround yourself with all that money can buy, and you’d still be as miserable as a human can be. I know people with perfect bodies who don’t have half the happiness I’ve found.
If you’re looking for happiness in things, you’ll never find it.
Sometimes you may feel like you are just about to realize your goal only to fall short. That is no reason to quit. Defeat happens only to those who refuse to try again.
In life, if you don’t know the truth, then you can’t be free, because then you’ll believe that the lies are the truth. But once we realize that when we read the Word of God, and you know the truth of who you are, then I’m not a man without arms and legs. I am a child of God.
I believe if God doesn’t give you a miracle, you are a miracle of God for somebody else’s salvation.
You should never live according to what you lack.
Dream big, my friend, and never give up. We all make mistakes, but none of us are mistakes. Take one day at a time. Embrace the positive attitudes, perspectives, principles and truths I share, and you, too, will overcome.
