Marcus Aurelius Anderson is an author, Keynote Speaker, TEDx Speaker and High-Performance Mindset Coach to CEO’s, Executives, Leaders and Entrepreneurs.
While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed. His world was turned upside down. In an instant, he went from preparing for war on the battlefield to a war within his own body and mind.
After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved his life, but told him he’d never walk again.
Having no other option, Marcus started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen…
Marcus now speaks, writes, and coaches others to overcome their own adversities to actualize their personal definition of success and fulfillment.
Marcus joined Mario on 10 Minute Mindset to talk about the injury that ultimately led him to the path he is on today, how we can effectively use gratitude to help us overcome difficulties in our lives, and how adversity can actually become our greatest gift.
His powerful TEDx talk “The Gift of Adversity” tells how to use Adversity as catalyst to make us better leaders, citizens and human beings.
His critically acclaimed book “The Gift of Adversity: Overcoming Paralysis and Pain to Find Purpose” tells the rest of his incredible story while further illustrating the many lessons learned from overcoming Adversity. These functional and inspiring lessons are applicable to self-help, personal development, leadership and entrepreneurship.
