Nick’s Motivational Quotations:
“This life is full of great experiences if we only give it a shot.”
“… God gave you just one mouth but He gave you two ears, so you should listen twice as much as you speak”
“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.”
“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.”
“The greatest rewards come when you give up yourself. It’s about bettering the lives of others, being part of something bigger than yourself, and making a positive difference.”
“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.”
“I have the choice to be angry at God for what I don’t have, or be thankful for what I do have.”
“If you can’t get a miracle, become one.”
“I don’t care if you are a good mathematician, or a good athletic, or not good at anything. That you think. But I am gonna come and tell you that you are awesome the way you are.”
“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.”
“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.”
“To wish for change will change nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will change everything!”

“You can’t even stand without risking to fall.”
“Some injuries heal more quickly if you keep moving.”
“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?”
“Keep moving ahead because action creates momentum, which in turn creates unanticipated opportunities.”
“If a man without arms and legs is dreaming big why can’t we, why can’t we all?”
“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.”
