    405 Pound Bench Press

    405 Pound Bench Press

    A short while after being paralyzed, I made my way back into the gym. Since I wasnt' able to use my legs, I gravitated to the bench press. There was a lot of uncertainty with my ability, but I set a goal or 275 lbs and pushed forward. Where I ended up at 405 lbs is much further than what I thought I could do and in the process of achieving more, I learned a lot along the way.

    Rob Or Be Robbed

    This journey we call life will rob you of many things including your happiness, peace, joy, and safety. We lose in life if we sit back and let life take these things from us. Winning in life happens when we decide we want to rob life of its ability to take those things that are important to us.

    I Can Make Myself Cry

    I Can Make Myself Cry

    I can make myself cry at almost anytime I choose to. All I have to do is take myself to a place where I bring back feelings of hurt or sadness from experiences that I have had in the past. Every experience has different senses and emotions that are woven into them. When we have experienced negative things in the past, it can be easy to bring ourselves back to those negative feelings by what we chose to surround ourselves by. If we want to change how we feel and create a more positive space, we can choose to surround ourselves with those things that will build that more positive space.

    Just Sit With Me

    Just Sit With Me

    One day during one the most difficult times in our lives, my daughter and I discovered one of our favorite things to do together. It came from a time when I was struggling, but she was probably struggling even more and in her struggle I had no solution, so the only answer I had was to just be present.

    "Yeah, But He Is In A Wheelchair"

    "Yeah, But He Is In A Wheelchair"

    We often hear labels, or statements, or judgements from others about who we are. If we allow it, those labels can blur our vision of ourselves and who we can be and keep us in a place of losing. To put ourselves in a place where we are winning and moving forward in our lives, we need shed ourselves of the weight of the labels that others put on us and focus on who we want to be ourselves.

Thank you, Chris

Chris, I am a former patient of yours, and was of course, shocked and saddened when I first heard about your accident several years back. I took immediate interest when I saw that you had a podcast out, and I listened to it, honestly, not knowing what to expect. While you’ve titled it, the “Get Out of Your Wheelchair“ podcast, I find that your lessons apply to anyone and everyone that wants to listen. no wheelchair necessary. You have great words, great insight, and I really appreciate your transparency and emotion. Thank you for making the time to do this.
