In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing
fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and
was burned on 100% of his body. He was given 1% chance to live.
This episode will challenge you to ask yourself, "What more can I do?" as the legendary Hall of Fame announcer, Jack Buck, asked himself after seeing John in the hospital for the first time and fearing that he would not see him again.
You will not want to miss this as John takes us through his mindset and the importance of faith in overcoming adversity and trauma, including how to use it in a manner that brings out the best version of ourselves.
You will learn why John finds it so important to journal on a daily basis and a simple question to help you start.
This epic story of survival was first showcased in his parents’
book, Overwhelming Odds, in 2006. Originally printing 200 copies for friends and family, his parents have sold 70,000 copies, most in
back-of-room sales at John’s speaking events. It was this book that
first invited John to embrace his miraculous recovery and share it
with the world.
John inspires nearly 75,000 people at 100+ events each year. He
speaks to companies and organizations across industries, such as:
sales, healthcare, business, safety, marketing, financial services,
faith, education and insurance.
