What do you do in that dark moment after an injury, or when you feel a sense of loss? Do you hate the world, or do you get back up and back into life? For my guest Chris Waddell, who was injured in a skiing accident in 1988 at the age of 20, he had a monumental moment lying there, realizing he no longer needed to ever feel intimidated by anybody if he could come back from “this.” He felt like he had a second chance, and was determined to get back into his regular life A.S.A.P so his injury wouldn’t get the best of him. Within two months, he was back in class. One year after his accident, Chris was back on the slopes, but this time he was using a mono-ski. After only 2 years of skiing, he was named to the U.S. Disabled Ski Team, and the next four winter Paralympic games, winning 12 medals in total and becoming the most decorated male skier in Paralympic history. Oh, and by the way, People Magazine voted him one of America's 50 Most Beautiful People. We talk about this and more on Life's New Normal Podcast.  About the Host: John Register, CSP, Gulf War Army Veteran, Paralympic Silver Medalist, and professional keynote speaker who shares life lessons increases business leaders ability to connect more authentically with their teams.
