Today’s episode of True Grit and Grace is with my favorite motivational speaker. Yes, he has made me laugh and cry when attending his speaking events over the years. We discussed motivation, purpose, and how “reason leads to conclusions, but it’s our emotion that leads to action.” I loved this conversation with Dan because it was so relatable and powerful. 

Dan Clark is the founder and CEO of an International Leadership Development Company; a High Performance Business Coach; New York Times Best Selling Author of 35 books; University Professor; a primary contributing author to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series; International Podcaster; Gold Record Songwriter; and an Award Winning Athlete who fought his way back from a paralyzing injury that cut short his football career.

Dan was inducted into the National Speakers Hall of Fame – and has been named one of the Top Ten Motivational Speakers In The World. Dan has spoken to over 6 million people, in all 50 states, in 71 countries, on 6 continents, to more than 6000 audiences including most of the Fortune 500 companies, Super Bowl Champions, NASA, and to our Combat Troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Asia and Africa. Dan has appeared on over 500 television and radio shows including Oprah and Glenn Beck, PBS and NPR, and has been featured in the Mayo Clinic Journal, Forbes, Inc., Success, Entrepreneur, Thought Masters and Millionaire Magazines.

Dan and I had an amazing conversation about healing after devastating injuries, why believing in miracles gives us the perspective we need, and how you can change your circumstances no matter what, making your life matter now!
