    You had so many reasons to give up but you chose not to and life gave you back and it’s like a ripple effect. I admire your courage and wisdom and thanks for sharing your storytelling which is a great example for all of us. I am happy you found your happiness and confidence in life.

    I hate you! You reminded me of my own vulnerability, my own weaknesses and my lack of courage. .. but then you also reminded me that I can be better, stronger and full of courage. Self doubts, fear and self pity are an inside job – punches I can’t counter because they are my own hand. I need to stop or I will never win the fight. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Jon!

    Man, you are so inspiring!

    Mike Weiss (of Client Engagement Academy) shared this link with me on FB – and I just made the connection that you were also rockin the top of Danny Iny’s launch… Which speaks volumes about your work and success in life.

    I SO hope to meet you someday in person. Until then! Keep rockin it. 🙂

    Cheers!

      Dear Jon,
      You are an amazing person and Thank God your mother had the strength to do what she did. Amazing, just amazing. You are my inspiration from this day forward. I am a Registered Nurse and I don’t think I’ve heard any story of such outstanding acts of bravery and triumphs. Outstanding Jon. You are a true inspiration to anyone. I will pass your story on and on to anyone that is in need of your courage from this day forward also. I am honored to have read your story and would be just as so to meet you in person. You are in my prayers. Carry on Dear Jon. I would love to hear more of your successes in the future.

      Sincerely,
      Donna

    Thank you, Jon, you give so much. I have been to that crossroads, yes different one from yours, but I recognised it straight away, dig the hole or say no! Like you I am still going forward and find enjoyment in each day…even the bad times are good.

    Hey, Jon!
    I’ve read this post multiple times and it continues to move me, especially the last part. I admit that making a name for myself with the ultimate goal of helping people and having freedom is extremely hard, but you make it seem possible. Heck, you made it possible!

    I’m grateful that life gave me the opportunity to know your story because it’s one of the few that truly inspires and motivates me to take action.
    And I *have* taken action. No more excuses to live the life I truly want to live.

      Hi Tim,
      Hi! I was about to text “Ted”, Lol! Any relation? Oh boy, I’m showing my age now. Ha Ha! Thank you for the response to my post. When I read how much pain that Jon has endured in his life and as a person living with chronic pain for years, I need to sit back and reflect on his pain and try to withstand mine in silence. He has encouraged me to fight my demons also.
      There should only be more people in the world as him. I just hope the pain part is or has been over for him as I feel that from his story, he has endured enough.
      Nice talking to you, Donna

    You know I am a tetraplegic and have an admiration of all you have achieved…I’m 27 years post injury and have achieved much (I’m still living!), but, how do you advise someone who is facing new challenges (work-wise and money wise), and finding it a struggle after the years of shit?

    Right at a point in my life when it seemed that everything around me was unraveling, I found your website. Everything you wrote was just what I needed to read.

    It made me ashamed for my lack of gratitude towards the good things I have, and reinvigorated my resolve not to let the blows of life get me down.

    The punches don’t seem so hard now. And, I’m learning to look for the counterpunch openings.

    Thank you, Jon, for your straightforward honesty and wisdom, and God bless you.

    Joining that fight with you. My life changed in a car accident, but I will never, never, never give up.
