Marcus Aurelius Anderson is a Bestselling author, TEDx Speaker, Keynote Speaker, US Army Veteran, lifelong Martial Artist and High-Performance Mindset Coach to entrepreneurs who are Leaders, CEO’s and coaches.

While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed.

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, inspires and coaches others to overcome their own Adversities to actualize their personal definition of success in every area of life.

His message teaches us how we can use our own Adversity to make us into better leaders, citizens, and human beings to create a better world.

If you are inspired and motivated by my message and energy, I’d love it if you’d share the information about the show with your friends.
