Sometimes I come across some stories and it strikes a chord deep in me, reminding me that whatever life deals you, success or failure is dependent on how you deal with.

This story is about a man born with no hands but works as an a vehicle engineer at NASCAR's most winning organization, Hendrick Motorsports.

I came across this video about Richie Parker who works as a vehicle engineer at Hendrick Motorsports on "The Christian Post". He reminds me of Nick Vijucic, the man born without arms and legs.

Richie Parker was born in Beaufort, S.C in May 1983 with a non-genetic birth defect called bilateral amelia that left him without arms.

He grew up with doubters telling him what he couldn't do without hands - ride a bike, drive a car or find a good job. But Parker never listened, and today he drives his own car and is a respected engineer for NASCAR's most winning organization, Hendrick Motorsports.

Watch the video about Richie's everyday activities.
