Live Life in Awe with John O’Leary

For a copy of the recorded event please email Clint Dunn at

In partnership with Zero Alpha Group ("ZAG"), Beaird Harris is pleased to present you with a virtual event featuring our friend, bestselling author, and prominent inspirational speaker John O’Leary.

Think back to the time when you once joyfully raised your hand high to answer every question, connected more easily with others around you, believed that anything was possible; when you experienced your days, not as something to endure, but as a marvelous gift to absorb and savor in awe of the ordinary moments of the day and eager for the promise of tomorrow.

Many of us experience life very differently today. The pace of change has never been so stunningly rapid, and it will never be this slow again. We often find ourselves caught in a life of dogged responsibility and mind-numbing repetition, we feel disconnected and burned out. Social media reminds us we don’t measure up and mainstream media barrages us with constant negativity. The years of test-taking, relentless striving toward someone else’s goals, and the daily struggle to earn a living have caused us to lose the sense of wonder that we once awoke with every day.

John O’Leary invites us to return to the joy of navigating life like a child. John will identify the five senses children innately possess, explain why those senses fade, and share emotional, humorous, and inspirational stories of how we can return to them. He will walk us through the most substantial challenges we face in living more fully, calling out the cause of those challenges, while providing practical and inspired solutions to address them. John will show you how to seek fresh insights, reach for new solutions, and live your best life.

Meet John O'Leary

John O’Leary has lived through worse than most can imagine.

At the age of nine, John was severely burned on 100% of his body. No one expected him to survive the first night. But he did. He then survived months in a hospital bed, dozens of surgeries, and years of therapy. Before his tenth birthday, John lost all of his fingers to amputation.

This wasn’t the end. John’s journey was just beginning. From this tragedy, John received the greatest gift – embracing the truth that regardless of our personal and professional challenges, we choose how to.

  • Navigate adversity through decision-making
  • Reveal a brighter vision for what’s possible
  • Live boldly to impact others

As a boy in that hospital bed, John could not have foreseen the amazing things he would accomplish. But his journey proved more empowering and rewarding than he could have ever imagined. It gave him strength. It fueled and drove him on. It provided hope. It taught him compassion and understanding, and it gave him a solid foundation for living.

Some call John a survivor, but he is so much more than that. John O’Leary is a beacon of hope, and he’s ready to share his message with you.

John now lives to share his story and to spark the stories of others living boldly, so that together we can forge an extraordinary future by finding the possibility in the present.
