    The Power of ONE: How One Attitude, One Action and One Person Can Change the World

    Expected to die, John O’Leary now teaches others how to truly live. In 1987, John was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, he created a massive explosion in his garage and was burned on 100% of his body. Given less than 1% chance of survival, John is proof of the power of the human spirit. Be inspired for lessons of life and taking action for yourself.
