The Power of Resilience: A Story of Triumph and Friendship

When I met John Register at the National Speakers Association Influence conference several years ago, I had no idea he would become such an incredible example of resilience, a speaking professional, and a friend to me.

His story of resilience, like mine, is the foundation for his business which is changing lives all over the world. 

Resilience is a quality that defines the human spirit and our ability to overcome adversity. It is a testament to the strength of character and determination that lies within each one of us. 

In my interview with John Register, I get to share a truly remarkable story of resilience, one that will inspire and uplift your spirits. John Register is a man whose story is as inspiring as it is awe-inspiring. 

John’s story takes an unexpected turn while he is on his way to officer candidate school as an army serviceman. At the same time, he is pursuing his dream of competing in the Olympics in track and field. Unfortunately, during a training session, John sustains a severe injury, hyperextending his leg and cutting off its circulation. This moment becomes a pivotal one in his life.

But John’s story is one of triumph, friendship, and the indomitable human spirit. It serves as a reminder that resilience knows no boundaries and that even in the face of unimaginable obstacles, we have the power to rise above.
