Teaching the youths to push beyond their limiting beliefs and live a life that has NO LIMITS. Nick already helped to inspire GIANTS in today's world, such as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ed Mylett, and many more.
Nick was born with Hanhart Syndrome with no leg and one arm. He was the 12th baby in the medical history that was born with that birth defect and gave him 30% of chances to live because out of the twelve, eight of them had passed away. Unfortunately, Nick is super blessed to have very supportive parents. They’ve cast those limiting beliefs of the things Nick can’t accomplish with. They were determined to give him a good life and believed that he could outshine on his limitations. Nick’s dad promised to be his arms and legs until the day he dies.
As expected, the world was so hard for Nick, especially during middle school. It was a very dark place for him where he experienced bullying. He started to question himself “WHY ME?”, and was not exempted from that victim mentality. The worst thing is Nick hated himself. He was thinking that his body is the biggest curse and the most disgusting thing to him.
Until one day Nick realized he had to change his life. Find the things that make him comfortable in order to gain confidence, and to avoid a miserable life. He was determined to shift his mindset and focus on positive things. He believed that nothing is impossible and he could be whatever he wanted to be. But then again, Nick was not an instant Mindset King. Things didn’t just happen for him but were constant progress of creating reality. He experienced downfalls but sees it as strength and gifts that mold him as a person to grow. Nick believes that life is a game and more opportunities come into your life if you control the game. He keeps working towards his dream and it’s worth it.
Now, Nick has found clarity, happiness, and fulfillment in life. His mission is to contribute and give impact to the world by helping the kids. He believes that he could change teens’ life by giving them the knowledge, perspective, and the tools to overcome difficulties and live the best life. Nick wanted to be “The Mindset Guide for the Kids”, by showing his biggest superpower to make people comfortable through sharing inspirational and actionable videos for kids, as well as building a community for parents.
Nick believes that kids are very receptive. Therefore, the best thing we can do is plant seeds. Plant seeds of contribution, plant seeds of how you can give fulfillment, and of how we can gain confidence, creating winners, giving them the victorious mindset, and teaching them how to teach and help others.
Take the action now so your kids can win the future!
