Marcus Aurelius Anderson Speaker Biography


While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus Aurelius Anderson suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. His life was turned upside down, and after dying twice on the operating table, he was told he would never be able to walk or use his hands again. Days quickly turned into months, and he was forced into a life-changing soul searching. He discovered he was left with two choices, he could either be a victim, or he change his mindset. Having no other option, he began looking for any lessons to be learned from his injury, and soon discovered that his Adversity was a gift. He now speaks, teaches, and writes to inspire others to actualize their full potential and achieve their goals and aspirations.

The Gift of Adversity

Buckle up for a story a lifetime in the making. The Gift of Adversity is Marcus’ own personal journey through a life-changing injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. Suffering is a motif we can all relate to, but the timeless lessons learned and applied in realtime will leave you inspired to take advantage of the mindhacks Marcus discovered while in the midst of Adversity.

 

Innovative Leadership

The only way to cultivate better employees is to be a better leader. We often think of business as a pyramid, but the truth is as a supervisor we need to be the foundation and example of personal and professional development.
