“It’s not the challenge that defines us. It’s what we do next.” - John O'Leary
John O’Leary, best-selling author and inspirational speaker, joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast.
John O’Leary is a miracle. Set on fire during a childhood accident and suffering burns over the vast majority of his body, he was given a zero percent chance at survival. The ensuing surgeries, amputations, and recovery were fraught with challenge that the majority of us will never know. Living became his purpose. Sharing how to live - his gift.
Today, John is a husband, father of four, the best-selling author of “On Fire”, a high-demand speaker, and host of the Live Inspired Podcast. He knows all about pain, but is on a mission to help others see and move beyond it. He wants to make sure we all open our eyes and “wake up” from accidental living.
This conversation is all about perspective, hope, love, and potential. In 45 minutes, John O’Leary just might help you see something new on your horizon.
JOHN’S WORDS OF WISDOM
“I love you and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
“We can either use challenge as a crutch for the rest of our lives to hold us back, or we can use them as s something the launchings us forward into the best chapters of our lives.”
“Pain is part of life.”
“The best is yet to come.”
“Talk matters. So, let’s make sure we share conversations that elevate, expand, and empower people to take the next best step forward.”
“It’s not the challenge that defines us. It’s what we do next.”
“Real change always takes place in hearts.”
“Instead of screaming about something you don’t like, or posting about it, act on it. Be different and attract different things.”
"If you know your why, then you can endure your how." - Viktor Frankl
