The man who leads with no limbs

Life, and success, without limbs. (Credit: Peter Bowes)

‘I have no arms and legs that weigh me down,’ How a man born without arms or legs learned to swim, surf, skydive – and speak in front of thousands

Editor’s Note (26th December 2015): As the year winds to a close, BBC Capital brings you one of our best-loved and most-inspirational stories of the year.

The man standing before the stadium-sized crowd held the attention of thousands, in part because of humorous, yet moving, speech about the power of hope. But also because he was standing there at all.

Nick Vujicic, the 32-year-old president of motivational speech marketer Attitude is Altitude, was born without arms or legs. Though he struggles with some practicalities of everyday living (brushing teeth, for example), he has become an in-demand inspirational speaker.

There is no medical explanation for Vujicic’s physical disability, an extremely rare congenital disorder known as tetra-amelia syndrome. He has a small foot on his left hip which helps him balance. He can type, pick things up between his toes and even kick a ball. The self-confessed adrenalin junkie regularly swims and has gone skydiving.

Confidence didn’t come naturally to Vujicic. Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, he struggled with depression and was bullied at school. When he was just 10 years old, he attempted suicide. Over time, Vujicic worked on adopting a positive attitude, and, at 17, an encounter with his high school janitor inspired him to go into public speaking. The charismatic Australian now travels the world addressing huge crowds, including business groups and schoolchildren. He has visited more than 50 countries and given thousands of talks.

The author of memoir Love Without Limits now lives in California with his wife, Kanae, and their 2-year-old son. They are expecting another child later in 2015. Vujicic runs a non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, as well as Attitude is Altitude, which markets his motivational speeches and campaigns against bullying.

Please click on the arrow above to see Nick Vujicic speak with BBC Capital about his extraordinary life and his recipe for success in the corporate world.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Mobile has been long pointed to as the next great communication channel for marketers, and for good reason. A vast majority of today’s consumers keep their mobile devices within arm’s reach at all times. This positions the smartphone as the consumer’s most trusted and important device, all while turning it into the marketer’s most direct and reliable engagement vehicle. 2015 was a landmark year in mobile marketing, and mobile as a whole. Smartphone adoption hit new record highs – as nearly two-thirds of Americans now own device, according to Pew Research1 . Coinciding with that, a majority of our retail and brand clients witnessed their own customer bases make the shift to mobile-first. We’ve received a variety of questions from clients and marketers just like you. Many seeking to better understand consumer mobile preferences, and arrive to a point-of-view on how their own customer bases use mobile to research, shop, subscribe and interact with the world around them. Our 2016 Mobile Consumer Study was designed to do just that. This report features the latest mobile consumer preference data, along with insights into the ways brands and marketers currently use mobile to engage customers. The goal of this report is to help you not only learn how your customers are using mobile – but also understand how they want to use mobile as well. Whether you’re new to mobile, or a seasoned practitioner, we encourage you to use this report and its data to: • Grow mobile subject matter expertise • Better understand customer mobile habits and preferences • Inform your mobile strategies based on consumer-preferred tactics and offerings
