In 1987, John O'Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body.
He was given a 1% chance to live.
And live he did.
With the help of a St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame broadcaster, and his love for baseball, John was able to survive and even more than that thrive in life.
John is now a motivational speaker and author, sharing his incredible story. His new book, "ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life" was an instant #1 National Bestseller selling 30,000 copies in the first 3 weeks.
On this episode of the podcast, John shares his story, recalling vivid details of what it was like sitting in a hospital bed moments from death, how he learned to write after losing his fingers, how a baseball hall of fame announcer helped him heal and impacted his life, and taking his mess, his darkest time, and turning into a powerful message of faith, hope and love.
