You see, when I was a junior in high school, a football injury left me a quadriplegic. An athlete unable to walk. A student unable to turn the pages of a book. To me the electric chair seemed like a death sentence – the end of the world as I knew it. That was September 3, 1971. I still use the chair today, but the chair has been transformed. Now it’s more like a speaker’s platform than a wheelchair. Today, I am a motivational speaker and health educator with good news to tell.
The good news is: we are all very capable people. We just need to find out what those capabilities are and how we can use them to our advantage. My presentation entitled “Think About It” helps individuals overcome obstacles, creatively solve problems and perform successfully – at school, at work and at home.
I’m a realist. I want my audience to start thinking and to learn if they think things through, they can find a solution to just about any problem. The problem is not the issue, the issue is how you deal with the problem.
I’d like to share my message with your school, group or organization. What I have to say will make you laugh. Some of it will make you cry. I can guarantee you this, it will make you “Think About It.” Let me tell you about it sometime.
