The Author Robert J Ott along with his Co-Author Bob Olson and Narrator Wayne June shares his amazing story of how a will to live, a love for life can overcome unthinkable trauma and deep despair.
Robert was a young man struggling to make it on his own when in 1990 he suffered a violent and traumatic experience when someone put a bullet through his brain.
Robert tells the amazing story of survival during a time when life shriveled to dark emptiness and his future seemed hopeless.
He introduces us to a world normally reserved for those who have been victimized or who battle disabilities: a world of loneliness, depression, denial, anger, embarrassment and despair. The coup de grâce which brought Robert to his knees: the loss of his cherished martial arts studio.
No income. No job opportunities. No formal education. Instead of breaking boards and flying through the air with high kick precision. Robert's life was now rendered to a bed, encapsulated by doctors, bill collectors and lawyers.
Robert reveals how the philosophies and principles of Martial Arts became the tools that allowed him to overcome the terrifying challenges he now faced.
Robert discusses his battle with the Social Security Administration and State agencies. He shares with us his lowest moments when exposed to crassness, ignorance, discrimination and prejudice.
Robert shares with readers how he turned a horrifying incident into a positive outcome that inspires and helps heal wounds suffered by others.
Robert took his anger and turned it into a determination that has brought him success in business, love and purpose in life.
