My name is Grant Korgan. I am an Athlete, a Speaker, the Author of the book Two Feet Back, and I teach people to overcome adversity and choose positivity in their every day lives!!!
On March 5th 2010 while riding in the Sierra Nevada back country, I burst fractured my L1 vertebrae and entered the world of spinal cord injury recovery. About 10 days after the accident, I woke up in the hospital's rehab facility with my first flash of awareness. Without a complex plan of recovery, a guaranteed method to mobility, I knew I needed only one thing -- Positivity. My path of recovery began with complete loss of feeling and zero movement below my belly button. Refusing to take "no" for an answer, my wife and I began a non-stop lifestyle of exercise and constantly choosing positivity which has taken me from the wheelchair to walking. Currently I can feel down to my knees, and am able to walk with the help of two canes. I am always looking forward (never backward), and in the coming months and years, I will make consistent strides toward my eventual goal of 120% recovery.
Life is about experiences, and choosing to see the good in all things that happen for us (not to us). My recovery is based on the belief that miracles are within all of us. I believe that when people shed the weight of their own limitations, everything becomes possible. Through my recovery, I want to empower all whom a story like this resonates with, to always remember we have the choice to live the highest version of ourselves, and that we can choose everyday to live our limitless potential.
Thanks for your time and support - Grant
