After attempting suicide at the age of 10, Nick has since turned his experience with bullying into a positive one by becoming a motivational speaker.
He attends schools, prisons and community groups all over the world to teach others that their worth isn't dependant on the opinion of other people.
Appearing on 60 minutes, Nick spoke about how teenagers will often seek direction from other people in their lives.
'I just want them to know early on that you'll overcome anything and to not listen to the world when it's telling you you're not good enough,' he said.
Nick openly talks about the very dark period he went through in life, but now admits that he can't believe how many of his dreams have fallen into place in the years since.
Revealing that he always hoped to fall in love and have a daughter he could walk down the aisle, Nick is now happily married with four children of his own, including twin girls.
Despite his condition Nick has never let it stop him from being active and involved with his children.
He is able to go fishing, play handball with his head and go swimming with his family.
Now a New York Times best-selling author, Nick has written several books including Life Without Limits, Unstoppable, Limitless, Stand Strong and Love Without Limits.
