John Register failed to clear a hurdle as he trained for the Olympic Games, a move that led to a tragic accident and altered his life forever. He shifted his mindset and embraced a “new normal.” The decorated Persian Gulf War United States Army veteran world champion became a two-time Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, professional speaker, and global influencer. Register moved past his fears and founded the United States Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Sports Program. He authored the book 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success in 2020, and today works with leaders to hurdle adversity, amputate fear, and embrace a new normal mindset to win life’s medals.
