John O'Leary: On Fire - How to Live a Truly Inspired Life

The Secrets to Winning with Dr. Bhrett McCabe

He was expected to die. Now he is teaching others how to truly live. In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given less than a 1% chance to live. His epic story of survival has never felt more relevant, as we experience the coronavirus pandemic and its aftermath. John‘s story, perspective and inspiration have inspired millions of people and 2,000 clients over more than 12 years - and continue to today through virtual keynotes, workshops and experiences. John is also a two-time national bestselling author of ON FIRE and IN AWE.

Parenting Great Kids with Dr. Meg Meeker

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.

The Mary Marantz Show

Do you remember what it was like to look at the world through the eyes of a child? A time when you believed that anything was possible and fearlessly jumped into new experiences? If this describes your past and not your present, then this episode is here to speak to your heart and encourage you to live each day as the incredible gift that it is. Today, Mary is joined by #1 bestselling author, beloved speaker, and Live Inspired Podcast host- John O’Leary - as the two dig into John’s new book, “In Awe: Rediscover Your Childlike Wonder to Unleash Inspiration, Meaning, and Joy”. Teaching others how to truly live, John’s new book invites readers to return to the joy of navigating life like a child. With humor and inspiration, today’s episode is an incredible look at how to experience our days with wonder, rather than as something to endure, and digs into the five senses children innately possess, why those senses fade, and how we can return to them. After listening, you will be ready to get back to seeing the world through the eyes of a child, the eyes that tell us to look at the world with wonder and expectancy; be equipped to practically choose that sort of wonder over cynicism and disappointment; and know what it looks like to live each day leaning into ferocious optimism. If you are ready to absorb and savor each day, choosing to see the awe in the ordinary moments of life, make sure to tune into this incredible episode!
