Today’s guest is John O’Leary. John is an inspirational speaker, blogger, and podcaster, as well as the author of On Fire, a national bestseller. At the age of nine, John survived a fire that burned 100% of his body and left him with a one-percent chance to live. He fought extraordinary odds, won, and now lives his life driven to help others live more inspired lives.
In his new book, In Awe: Rediscover Your Childlike Wonder to Unleash Inspiration, Meaning, and Joy, he invites us to return to the joy of navigating life like a child by reconnecting with the five senses children innately possess.
I first saw John speak in 2019. He gave one of the most impactful, inspirational, and meaningful presentations I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been looking forward to having him on the podcast ever since.
Today, he joins me for a conversation about why his childhood experience is one of triumph and not tragedy — and what we can all do right now to shift our mindset, embrace positivity, and stay open-minded as we age.
