If you were born with no limbs, no one would blame you for feeling down. And that's what Australian Nick Vujicic, 28, who suffers from the rare Tetra-amelia syndrome, did for most of his childhood. But eventually he realised his struggles were potentially inspirational to others.

And what struggles they were. Vujicic, who had to get the law changed in his home state of Victoria to go to a mainstream school, has taught himself to do everything from writing to shaving to playing the drums, and even started his own non-profit organisation, Life Without Limbs, at the age of 17.

Since graduating from university, he's taken his message of hope around the world, speaking to more than three million people, appearing on television programmes, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, and releasing motivational DVDs. He talks about his disability, how he's overcome many problems, and how everyone can find meaning and purpose in their lives. His Dream Big tour sees him focus on young people, encouraging them to think about what they'd do if they ruled the world.
