Attitude is Altitude: A Must-Watch Story

My friend, Caitlin, often shares heartwarming links and stories. She's a blogger-turned-author andmotivational speaker. Last Friday she shared this one. Whoa. I loved it!
Having been born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic suffered bullying, depressionand loneliness. Instead of letting this get him down, he fought back--by doing things people said he never could and inspiring others in the process. The Australia native earned a college degree and moved to the US, where he operates the nonprofit Attitude is Altitude. He's also recently engaged.
From Attitude is Altitude: "Imagine being born without arms. No arms to wrap around someone, no hands to experience touch, or to hold another hand with. Or what about being born without legs? Having no ability to dance, walk, run, or even stand on two feet. Now put both of those scenarios together: no arms and no legs. What would you do? How would that effect (sic) your everyday life?"
Watch Nick's inspiration video now:

One of the best quotes: "It's a lie to think that you're not good enough. It's a lie to think that you're not worthy."
