Vujicic began the Life Without Limbs Organization and tells his story in more than 54 countries around the world. And sure, his motivational speaking is faith-based, which means a bunch of you just said to yourselves, "I'm an atheist, so now it's time to stop reading this and enter a Photoshop contest." To which we say, "You don't have to declare that you're an atheist to yourself all the time. You should understand that inherently without having to state it out loud."
Still ... what can he actually do, other than tell people around the world that they have hope in their lives? Did we mention Nick can swim? That dude can totally swim. Here he is insulting your laziness, and if that's not good enough, here he is surfing all over your prejudices. Basically, he spends a lot of time doing things most of us are too busy compiling all the family histories of Game Of Thrones to try. He's the ultimate "if he can do it, I can do it," example. And that's what his motivational speeches are all about.

Here he is about to swim with sharks, and then presumably convince them to follow Jesus.
Still ... you're probably saying, "Great. He's a motivational speaker. What kind of a life can he actually have with no arms and no legs? I grade people's overall worth by the sex they can and can't have, so let's be real for a minute." I'm paraphrasing you in a hypothetical situation, which makes this quote about as accurate as a dog's eyewitness testimony in a cat-murder case. But, we know you thought something similar to that, and you've never read a Cracked article before, and you're reading this with all of your delusions intact, which will make this all the sweeter when we tell you that Vujicic got married in 2012 and fathered a child shortly after ... probably just to prove you wrong.
"I like this game. Go on, tell me I'll never win the lottery either."
