Doing What Must Be Done (Guest: Chad Hymas)

BTRadioIntListen in as Chad tells his story of dealing with life-changing circumstances. Much more than that, however, is the way he encourages us all to manage challenges of all kinds.
……………….

 

ChadHymasphotoAt some point most everyone has faced adversity in one form or another. But what about the sort of adversity that forever affects the remainder of one’s life, the bone-jarring kind of event or circumstance that challenges even one’s will to carry on? Even then, can adversity push us to become MORE that we ever imagined?

It seems so.

An accident on his ranch left young Chad Hymas paralyzed from the waist down with very limited use of his upper body. In this moving and fast-paced program, he will share the challenges he faced as his plans for himself and his family were changed in a heartbeat. But Chad will also share how his experiences opened new opportunities for him to serve and encourage others.

ChadHymasbookChad is a sought-after inspirational speaker and author of the book, Doing What Must Be Done. He travels as much as 300,000 miles a year sharing his special brand of encouragement and hope to audiences of all types worldwide. He is a world-class wheelchair athlete. In 2003, Chad set a world record by wheeling a personal marathon of over 500 miles from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas. He’s also one of the youngest members ever to be inducted into the National Speakers Association’s Speaker Hall of Fame. (27:39)

Attitude Matters: Never Give Up (Guest: LaDene Mayville)

LaDeneMayvillephotoWhen we’re old enough to realize that the world out there isn’t always kind and safe, we begin to understand that struggle, difficulty and adversity are simply a part of the whole experience we call LIFE.

How we manage difficulty says a lot about us, but how we teach and encourage our children to manage difficulty says the rest. What better gift could a parent give a child or a teacher give a student?

LMayvillecoverOur guest on this program, LaDene Mayville, not only knows this subject well, she believes strongly that the defining characteristic for overcoming difficulty is attitude. “When we encounter challenges and disappointments one after another,” says LaDene, “it’s so easy to give up hope and want to quit. But if we don’t get back on our feet and keep on moving, we may never know the blessings that could be just around the corner.”

Drawing on her experiences as a storytime teacher of kindergarteners in an inner-city school, as well as her desire to encourage others as they navigate difficult circumstances, LaDene authored her first book, Hallie the Harvester Ant: Never Give Up. It’s a children’s book with a message for us all. (27:17)

COMING SOON: Child-Centered Divorce: Getting it Right, Part One (Guest: Rosalind Sedacca)

Growing Successful Young People (Guest: Vonda White)

Vonda White believes we all can leave extrordinary lives, no matter where we start. Her story is a testimony to what she believes. Her early years in a single-parent home were a challenge; she was picking up aluminum cans when the other girls were playing hopscotch. Through it all, however, she continued to dream big dreams and, with encouragement, she established and accomplished major goals in her life.

Today, Vonda owns and directs a very successful A+ rated business in Tarpon Springs, Florida, and is a sought-after presenter and media guest. She continually strives to encourage others to take action on their hopes and dreams as they set and achieve goals in their lives. In  this interview, Vonda encourages young people and those who raise them and teach them. She also makes a very generous offer to high school teachers in this program.

Vonda’s book, Success Against the Odds, is not only about her story and accomplishments, but the stories of others who took on the odds and beat them. (One of the stories is about Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields’ Cookies; she built a 400-million dollar empire from nothing but a recipe and a dream.) This inspiring and well-written book, as well as a very detailed success planner (with instructional DVD), a success course, newsletter, blog and other valuable resources can be found at her website, www.successagainsttheodds.com.

Suggestion: Share this program with the young people in your life. (24.28)
