Nick Carter (@nickcarter): Facing the music – Inspiring Quotes

by | Aug 20, 2014 | Backstreet Boys, Boy Bands, Opinion, Thoughts

“The greatest gift you and I will ever receive is the realization that we can and should take responsibility for our own lives. We can rise above.” ~ Nick Carter

I’ve recently re-read his book “Facing the Music and Living to Talk about it” (If you haven’t read it yet YOU MISSED OUT 🙂  but you can still buy it on amazon!)

It is not a book which tells you what to do or how to live your life – BUT it might give you hope, ideas or motivates you to change some things in your life.

In it you’ll find funny moments, sad moments and lots of inspiring quotes and I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes out of it. (With the help of my friend Liesbeth. Thank you!)

You really can program your brain to get you what you want

You still have the ability to write your own story. It may not come easy. You may have a lot of work to do..

As much as I longed to make a change, I didn’t know what life would be like if I gave up my dependencies.

What’s the worst that could happen? Then consider: Is it better or worse that where you are now?

This quote is about him performing with the Buccaneers’ cheerleaders when he was around 10:

Don’t get me wrong, Backstreet is a great group. Kevin, A.J., Brian, and Howie are my brothers and fun to hang out with, but they don’t quite do for me what my first group did. 

(I bet…ha ha)




Maybe those quotes will make you want to re-read it again or for the first time. So feel free to share YOUR favorite quotes with us.

    I just downloaded it on my nook yesterday (I still want a hard copy though) and I cried just at the forward by Howie! I can see myself getting very, very emotional during this! My best friend read it already and loved it.
