"I learned early on that I couldn’t control what happened to me, but I could control what I did about it.” ~Shay Eskew
Habits2Goals is proud to present a powerful interview with best-selling author, motivational speaker, Ironman, and fellow Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim adventurer Shay Eskew.
Shay's story is inspiring and motivating, showing that self-made success is possible despite overwhelming obstacles.
At the age of 8, a neighbor's child accidentally set Shay on fire. Shay saved the life of his 7-year-old friend and suffered burns on more than 65 percent of his body.
Despite being told he'd never play sports again—and enduring more than 35 surgeries over the last 36 years—Shay is a four-time Ironman, member of Team USA, and 25-time Ironman 70.3 athlete. He is ranked in the top 1 percent of Ironman athletes worldwide and has competed in 11 Triathlon World Championships in seven countries on four continents.
Shay shares his gut-wrenching fight to rise above his injuries and reclaim his life, and how he rose above countless setbacks and difficulties.
Listen in for a riveting discussion of one man's inspiring journey, and how we all can turn our greatest tragedies into our greatest blessings if we have the faith to stay the course.
Enjoy the episode!
**Shay credits the Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati for saving his life and raises funds for the organization.
