Présentation de l'éditeur :

On December 26,1983, Art Berg was on his way to see his fiancée when his car went off the road. A broken neck left him a quadriplegic. Doctors immediately began to impose limits on his life: He would not walk, hold a job, or have children. Those doctors never could have guessed that the man lying before them was determined to prevail, and would, in fact, 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.

Doctors insisted that Berg would need an electric wheelchair, as a manually operated one would be too taxing for his withered arms. But he knew they were wrong. Ultimately, in his hand-powered wheelchair, Berg set a world record in an ultramarathon. And less than a decade after his accident, he had established a thriving career as a motivational speaker, giving more than 150 speeches around the country each year.

But success did not arrive without deep struggles with discouragement, frustration, anger, and often overwhelming uncertainty. He had to ask himself many tough questions and teach himself to find happiness. While Berg suffers from physical paralysis, he understands that hundreds of thousands of people suffer from emotional paralysis: They feel beaten down by fate, lost, and unfulfilled. Instead of knowing the exhilaration of life's possibilities, they are paralyzed by its limitations. Through his own inspiring journey back to a mobile, satisfying, passion filled life, Berg has learned many important lessons that will help anyone frozen by fear or frustration:

  • Courageous people are not unafraid.

  • The problem isn't what you can't do, it's what you won't do.

  • Don't let a bad day turn into a bad life.

  • Remember, some miracles take time.

  • Adversity does not lead us away from our best ambitions, but closer to them.

The Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer is not just the story of one man's happiness; it is a reflection on what happiness means. Art Berg found his own success and built his own peace. In these pages, he doesn't define what his readers' hopes should be; instead, he leads them to ways to define those hopes for themselves.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Art Berg, president of Invictus Communication, Inc., and founder of eSpeakers.com was named the Young Entrepreneur of the Year by the Small Business Administration, as well as one of Success magazine's Great Comebacks of the Year. At the age of 38, he was inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame of the 4,000-member National Speakers Association and elected its president. With numerous professional awards to his credit, Berg was awarded a Super Bowl ring by the 2000 World Champion Baltimore Ravens.

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.

Description du livre Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. État : New. 234 x 153 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
