“We often face different predicaments in life. Sometimes when we are knocked down by the setback, we come up with negative ideas and thoughts. This is a vicious circle where in the end, we would be shrouded by negativity. Nick was born different. In the past he had experienced despair towards life but now he’s learned to embrace it. In this book, he teaches people to appreciate those who are nice to you as well as those who aren’t. Learn to see things with some humor. You only get to live once so whenever you set up a goal, see to accomplish it. Expend your horizon, don’t limit yourself. ”

If you have doubt in your ability, Nick says, “When you doubt whether you could realize your life goal, please trust those who are willing to help you and guide you.”
If you feel horrible about yourself, Nick says, “When my parents saw me with no limbs when I was born, they couldn’t help but wonder what God was thinking. However, today I’m living a life beyond all imagination. I can only say, ‘I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.’”
If you face changes in life, Nick says, “To take a hold of the unwanted or sudden change, the first step is to keep alert, promptly acknowledge that you will be entering a new phase, whether it is good or bad, sensing and detecting the change can lessen the stress.”
If you are planning to give up your dream, Nick says, “Tell yourself to give it a day, a week, a month or a year more. You will realize the result of refusing to quit is simply amazing. Only the ones who refuse to try again will be defeated.”
If you feel sad and grieved, Nick says, “On the other side of the grieve, there will be a way. It will make you stronger and firmer and you will find the life you want. I will show you the way.”
If you ever feel like committing suicide, Nick says, “If I had let my face sink in the water for 10 more centimeters when I was 10, perhaps I could’ve ended this short life of suffering. But at what cost? I will never swim with sea turtles in Hawaii, surf in California, dive happily in Columbia. Please don’t make the mistake I almost did.”
