What’s Your “Q Card” ?

As a quadriplegic, my “Q Card” might be “I’m Quadriplegic.” In other words, do I choose to identify with being a quadriplegic as an excuse for not accomplishing what I want out of life, or do I choose to identify it as a card I’ve been dealt and play the game of life with it?

We all have exQuses that we tell others and ourselves keeping us from attaining our true desires. They get used to giving our exQuses like a Wild Card in a game as a free pass when we’re scared, need attention, or are being pushed out of our comfort zones. This presentation provides effective tips to clear your “hand” and play cards that deliver maximum success.

  • Recognize your “Q Card” or exQuses.
    • “I’m not smart enough… They won’t want me… It’s too hard… I’m too old… Too overweight…” and “I am addicted to something… You wouldn’t understand…” are just a few examples.
  • Play It Through.
  • Throw them out.


As a quadriplegic my mind can’t force my muscles to move. When we allow fear and doubt to control our minds we become mentally paralyzed and unable to truly progress in business and life. We are frozen. I can’t choose to move my legs and walk, but I can choose to stand up, face my fears mentally, and achieve my full potential by aspiring for greatness.

  • Identify your paralysis.
  • Obtain the tools to achieve superior results.
  • Commit to living UNFROZEN.

Walking Is Overrated

Crushed with thinking about what I had to do to be happy and be productive and you have to be creative. Come up with different ways to do things. i.e., a bike ride, how does a family figure out how to do it. don’t have to be a colleege graduate or have working legs to do it. you just work hard and figure it out. fear is the opposite of faith, believe that it can happen.

After a second paralyzing neck break, my dream of walking again was crushed. How will you choose to Walk, or Roll, through the daily challenges of work and life?

  • Choose to Push through challenges.
  • Creativity creates Results.
  • Fear is the opposite of Faith.
  • Develop your own “Bring It On” phrase.
