The next professor on the School of Greatness is known as the “Three Foot Giant”.

He grew up suffering from a condition in which his brittle bones were incredibly prone to damage.  He broke more than 200 bones in his lifetime and the emotional and physical pain he endured is incredible.

He persevered through his condition and become a Clinical Therapist, reached millions of people around the world, become friends with Sir Richard Branson, President Clinton, and his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  He is one of the most powerful and vulnerable guests we’ve ever had on. Please welcome, Sean Stephenson.

This episode got me to watch Sean's video at Sharp and the ringing in my ears is still saying get off your ass, no excuses, no delay and no better time than now. Thanks Lewis, you are one of the leaders who are helping those of us who are ready to change the world but just need to change a few things about ourselves first.  PEACE to you and all your relations. I look forward to being a specific not a generality "Zig Zigler" and with your inspiration I know it is going to happen in 2014.

Absolutely blown away by this interview Lewis. I failed out of high school once, college twice, and went on to get a PhD despite most of my family being addicts or mentally ill. I couldn't even fathom doing it with a medical condition and being in chronic pain. Dr. Stephenson is a true example of leading from the front. His refreshing candor and honesty are as memorable as both of your desires to make people's lives better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting this.

This is my favorite show by far. I learned so much that I had to listen to it twice. The second time, I took notes. I'm inspired to be so authentic that I will inspire others to be authentic as well. #authenticity #mindfulness #vulnerability

Snorkel v. scuba = wonderful story. So true.


I have so many thoughts and comments from this episode but I'm having trouble conveying it. All in all, I loved it. Thank you to you and Sean for sharing this story.

Another beautiful episode!  Thank you!  Loved listening to Sean's blunt wisdom.  Got a little teary when he shared his hiking story.  And still wrapping my brain around "We only judge others because we are judging ourselves."  


Every day diving deeper into vulnerability.

WOW-so many take aways with this one. I almost have to go back and listen to it again.  Sean is so unbelievably poignant and wise in everything he talked about on the episode. Overall, loved his honesty, authenticity and beautiful realness.  I hung on every word.  Still processing it all.  I've listened to about 20 episodes so far, and there are many many great ones.  But this one was, hands down. the absolute best one.  

Thank you, Lewis, for these podcasts.  I've read lots of books, listened to many podcasts and great speakers, and had amazing teachers, coaches and mentors in my life.  This podcast is absolutely rockin' my world, and opening my mind up to new and bigger ideas, creativity and push for more excellence in my life.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Lewis,

You are offering such good information through conversation... honest sharing. You and your guests are an inspiration to me and I am blessed to listen to your podcasts. You are genuine and a great host.

Please keep up the excellent work. I will achieve because you're helping me to become fearless, motivated, courageous and to live life fully with confidence, a vision and belief in MYSELF. 


Thank you!

Lewis,


It's pretty awesome that you had someone like Sean on your podcast. Because, what he said about 'Self-Pity' being like quicksand— I believe that this episode, and the message both of you are bringing on an on-going basis, has the potential to lift so many of us out of it.


Happy New Year to you, Lewis, your Staff, and to Sean & his amazing wife,


Robb

I pinched a nerve in my back and have been complaining about it for the past few weeks. After listening to this podcast I'm stopping my complaining. :)

Thanks for sharing guys. Really good stuff.

@DrsOsburn thanks so much, I appreciate.  Sean is amazing indeed, and it's my goal to bring on people just like him... to open up the heart and the mind to show people whats possible for themselves.  Would love a review over on iTunes if you have a moment :)
