9780060199906: The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer: Living with Purpose and Passion

I have never met anyone else who has had a greater impact on people's lives through the sheer force of his own life's experience.' Anthony Robbins. At the age of 21 Art Berg broke his neck in a serious car accident. A quadriplegic, he was told he would never walk again, work or live independently. He was encouraged to believe his life was over. Since then he has run two multimillion dollar corporations and been inducted into the Speakers' Hall of Fame. He has addressed hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and organisations, including American Express, and travelled 200,000 miles each year to do so. In 1993 he set a world record by being the first quadriplegic of his level to race a 325-mile ultra-marathon. He also defied the doctors by marrying and becoming the father of two children. The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer is Art's inspiring story of his perseverance against the odds and the ways of thinking that enabled him to achieve all he has. In his captivating autobiography he explains how his physical paralysis is similar to the figurative paralysis so many of us feel - and how we can use his insights to become master of our own lives.

Product Description:

A postscript to this edition includes a touching letter that Berg's young daughter wrote about her father for the Books for a Better Life Awards ceremony.

On December 26, 1983, Art Berg was traveling to see his fiancee when his car went off the road. A broken neck left him a quadriplegic. Doctors told Berg he would never walk, hold a job, or have children. But they could not have been more wrong. Berg was determined to prevail, and would one day wear his own Super Bowl ring.

In The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer, Berg recounts his harrowing and inspirational story while imparting larger lessons about life, fear, and passion. Never giving up, Art resolved to embrace life even more fully, and established a thriving career as a motivational speaker, giving more than 150 speeches each year.

Tragically, Art Berg died in February 2002, but his inspiring story -- a singular vision of passion and conviction -- lives on in The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer.

Review:

'I have never met anyone else who has had a greater impact on people's lives through the sheer force of his own life's experience.' Anthony Robbins
