    Jon, you rock.

    Your perspective on things cuts straight through the bullshit. There’s no time to be stuck in emotions and thinking about what should have been. Otherwise you are missing out on the counterpunch 🙂

    The concept of counter punch is really motivating. All it means it not to relent, no matter the challenges. Your story inspire and motivate me. Thanks

    Hi Jon,
    What an amazing story!
    It is indeed a motivational one!
    I appreciate the courage you have shown in the adverse situation.
    Indeed this will be a motivational piece to all who go thru this post.
    Yes, our history is filled with courageous people who showed their expertise and courage even in the midst of their worst situations or let me put it this way even in the midst of their disability. Yes, our history is filled with such people, You are indeed one among them, as you too proved the age-old adage: “Disability is not a Liability”
    As you mentioned in the post, the little plaque of a quote from Winston Churchill brought by your mother made you to repeat and you succeeded with it.
    Yes, Never, Never, Never Give up!
    Go on and on.
    All the best
    ~ Philip

    You’re amazing and even though I have not encountered the amount of pain you have gone through, I resonate completely with what you have said about your philosophy on life. You are an amazing being!

    The polish and punch that you write, offers ‘others’ so much energy. Your core and courage and confidence eclipses …the common. An exceptional man!

    Hi Jon I’m so moved by your journey and your Spirit to persevere and still keep reaching for so much more. Life as we know it is about challenge and it seems the the bigger the climb the more strength we must muster up to not just make it but fly higher as you have done each time. I believe we come into this world with specific parents to teach us and God Bless your Mother’s strength as you express. Ppl like yourself , just like her, are here to bless us as well. You are that saving grace. Interestingly enough, I signed up for a 21 day challenge yesterday to dig deep and find what I’m made of and finding your story this morning is fuel for my experience.
    I’ll continue reading about your exp. through blogging and maybe learn to do it on my own. I thank you Jon for sharing your experience to inspire us all . I see it as bumping into another beautiful Spirit reminding us of exactly who we are. Love & Light coming your way!

    This blog post was so riveting! I have to get your training to help me write as engaging as you do.

    I appreciate this blog post. It’s filled with courage, bravery, inspiration and a powerful will to never give up and that’s the main reason I’m here doing what may seem crazy – to reach my goals.

    Whoa Jon I’ve never been so happy, sad, motivated, moved and jaw dropped ever in my life! Like ever! Your story moved me so much!

    “Pneumonia 16 times, recovered from more than 50 broken bones, and spent literally years of my life in hospitals and doctor’s offices” are you kidding me? I get scared as hell if I get a regular fever! Then again you moved to Mexico with no money, no friends, and no backup plan! Are you kidding me?

    You’re my hero from today man.

    I’m going to bookmark this page and read it whenever I feel like I can use the courage, bravery, inspiration and the will power you possess. Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. God bless.

    I’ve been punched in the face by this life…one after another after another after another. I’ve always persevered, by the Grace of God…but I’ve never considered the counterpunch. I’ve just persevered. You Jon inspires me to see that opening and use it to my advantage. God Bless you!
