Marcus Aurelius Anderson is our guest on this episode. I just happened to be on Linked In when someone had posted this very inspiring and powerful TEDX Talk by Marcus. After watching the talk I had to get him on the podcast to share his story about ‘adversity.’
While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed. After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved his life, but told him he'd never walk again.
Having no other option, Marcus started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen.
Today Marcus is aTEDxSpeaker, Keynote Speaker, Author, Mindset Coach.
