Being unstoppable is about believing and achieving. It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents, your purpose, and most of all, in God’s great love and His divine plan for your life.
Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action, by Nick Vujicic, provides inspirational stories of Nick’s hardships. Because he was born without arms and legs, he had to overcome the many obstacles and trials to get where his is today. Just when he thought that he’d hit rock-bottom, he realized that having faith in himself was going to make him a stronger person. Not only did having faith guide him on a daily basis, his passion for helping others made him a better person.
Throughout the book, Nick guides the readers on how to achieve their own success and happiness, as well as how to start believing in themselves. He also discusses topics, such as:
- Personal crises
- Relationship issues
- Career and job challenges
- Health and disability concerns
- Self-destructive thoughts, emotions, and addictions
- Bullying, persecution, cruelty, and intolerance
- Imbalance in body, mind, heart, and spirit
- Feeling out of control
It was over a year ago that I was introduced to one of Nick’s YouTube videos and I really enjoyed his speech. He was funny and I enjoyed his positive energy. As for this book, I did enjoy reading it. I, especially, was interested in the topic of bullying and the effects it can have on people, as well as the fact that awareness of bullying needs to be addressed. Bullying not only occurs in schools, it occurs everywhere else, such as in the home and the workplace.
One of the passages that I really liked is where Nick says: “Many people struggle to find meaning and direction in their lives. They question their value because they aren’t clear on how they can contribute or make a mark. Maybe you haven’t identified where your talents and interests lie. It’s not uncommon to cast about trying one thing or another before identifying your life’s calling. Changing course several times is increasingly common. I encourage you to identify whatever it is that fulfills you and engages all your gifts and energy…Be patient if it takes time to find your way. Know that timing is important and that as long as you hold a true passion in your heart, it will not fade. Understand that even passions can come with risk.”
Nick’s advice is to always put your “faith into action” and to believe in the power of prayer. Although I’m not a religious person, I do enjoy an inspirational story, on occasions. I’d recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an inspirational story for self-improvement, success, etc. The topics in this story can really benefit others.
