At some point, we have all told ourselves the same lie: “I’m not enough.”
Maybe when it comes to your work, you believe you’re not enough. You’re working as hard as you can, but you still get the feeling that your coworkers and boss think less of you. Or maybe, you feel like you’re not enough when it comes to your relationships. You look at your partner and think, “Why on earth would they want to be with someone like me?” Or maybe, you look at yourself in the mirror and you don’t like what you see. You think to yourself, “I wish I was someone else.”
I don’t think there’s a single human being that hasn’t struggled with self-doubt. I know I have. Maybe you were bullied as a kid, and you can’t shake that feeling — that you’re a loser and can’t possibly measure up.
When I was in school, people called me the “dumb kid.” For years, I let that taunt me. But people don’t define your limitations — you define them. If you live your life believing the lie that “you’re not enough,” you’ll end up limiting yourself.
It’s amazing the things we can accomplish when we actually believe we can accomplish them. That change of mindset is crucial when it comes to reaching our full potential. You are enough.
My guest today knows all about self-doubt. He has no limbs — no arms or legs. But he hasn’t let this slow him down.
Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on as well.
Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity. Nick established Life Without Limbs ministry in 2005, and he is currently serving as President and CEO. In 2012, Nick married the love of his life and now they have four beautiful children.
Nick has written several bestselling books, such as Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life and Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children. Nick is truly an inspiration, and I was so honored to have him on The School of Greatness today.
