Today's Guest(s)

John O’Leary’s life is proof of the power of the human spirit. As a nine-year-old boy, he was burned on 100% of his body and given less than one percent chance of surviving the first night. Despite the odds, John overcame these challenges and enjoys wonderful success in life. John felt compelled to embrace his past, rise above his fears and share his message with others. He is a college graduate, business owner, philanthropist, husband and father.

EPISODE NOTES

Life is busy, very busy. In the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, you can lose sight of what’s important. Engagement in extracurricular activities is at an all-time high, and burnout seems to rise daily. There was a time when we danced through our days with childlike wonder, in awe of the experience of the moment and excited for the promise of tomorrow. In his new book IN AWE: Rediscover Your Childlike Wonder to Unleash Inspiration, Meaning and Joy, John O’Leary invites readers to return to the joy of navigating life like a child and identify the five senses that children innately possess. In this episode, Dr. Meg talks with John about his book and what exactly those “five senses” are and how you can return to them. John is a survivor of a fire that burned 100% of his body, and he was given only a 1% chance of surviving.

He has turned this story into the foundation of his first book On Fire: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life, and he also speaks at conferences and events around the country. His emotional story-telling, unexpected humor and authenticity make each of his talks truly transformational. This is a great conversation that you will want to pay close attention to as they talk through living in awe! Do you have a question for Dr. Meeker?
