9780749923631: The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer: How to Live Every Day 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.

Review :

In the preface, Art Berg (Finding Peace in Troubled Waters, Some Miracles Take Time) says he's going to tell us a story, and that we might find that story a tragedy. And while his story of a flipped car and permanent paralysis will inspire sympathy, Berg is so plainspoken and wryly positive, chances are that it will only take readers a couple of chapters before that sympathy becomes a desire for personal growth.

Berg's folksy suggestions include treating a bad day like a cold virus: "you can make all kinds of moaning sounds. But the reality is, it usually will last for 24 to 48 hours." He also recommends that we not ask why bad things happen, because there is never a reasonable answer and the process leads all too easily to what he calls "why-ning."

These notions may seem like oversimplification, but his little snippets of wisdom are surrounded by stories of the types of obstacles most of us never encounter, like dealing with doctors who said he'd never move independently again, flight attendants treating him differently because of his wheelchair, an inability to make a simple "thumbs up" sign to his daughter, and relearning how to accomplish simple daily tasks.

With moving examples like these as the basis for his philosophy, Berg smoothly ties the events of his life together with appealingly simple ideas to help you focus on your true desires and strengths. --Jill Lightner
