Have you ever wanted life to return to normal? Or, have you thought where you are is just your new normal? If so, you need to hurdle adversity, amputate fear, and embrace a new normal mindset with the number one adversity overcomer, John Register.
John Register is a two-time Paralympian, Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, Persian Gulf War veteran, and TEDx Motivational Speaker. He embraced a “new normal” in becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the 1996 Olympic Games, after participation in two consecutive Olympic trials.
An Oak Park, Ill. native, Register discovered how to “amputate his fear of disability” and founded the U.S. Olympic Committee Military Sports Program in the early 2000s. He has launched a book titled: 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success, as business leaders return to work with their staff amid stressful circumstances of supply chain issues, labor concerns, and inflation all stemming from the Coronavirus pandemic.
Register teaches others through his “Hurdling Adversity” keynote speeches and podcasts to “amputate their fear and embrace their new normal mindset,” as audience members discover how to unleash the stories within themselves to win medals in their life.
Register is a four-time All-American graduate of the University of Arkansas. He served six years in the U.S. Army—including in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and in active duty with the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program—winning nine gold medals in the Armed Services Competition and two World Military Championships.
Register resides in Colorado Springs.
