"No matter what your container, no matter what your station, no matter what you were born into, you have to view it looking for the advantages."

I’ve got some sad news, which you may have already heard. One of the most inspirational people I’ve ever met, Sean Stephenson – known around the world as the “3 Foot Giant” – passed away last week, after a wheelchair accident.

Sean dedicated his life to helping people, and I was blessed to know him as a friend and mentor. Today it is my privilege to share some of his inspiration with you by giving you an opportunity to listen to the last interview that he and I did together.

Because of a rare bone disorder, Sean was predicted not to survive at birth. In fact, he’d suffered over 200 fractures by the time he turned 18.

However, Sean has survived, thrived, and lived a life that has inspired millions around the world. He’s appeared on Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel Live, has online videos with 10+ million views, been the subject of a TV series for A&E called 3 Foot Giant, and published a book titled Get Off Your But: How to End Self-Sabotage.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How Sean was born into adversity, the moments that shaped who he is, and why Sean refused to be defined by his DNA.
  • How Sean answered a tough question from a mentor – and why that moment defined his mission and changed his life forever.
  • Why Sean’s container is a tool that gives him unique advantages and ensures he’s heard and remembered – not a setback.
  • The first time the Miracle Equation appeared in Sean’s life, and how a meeting in his teens and a case of mistaken identity led to Tony Robbins, who notoriously doesn’t write forewords, writing the foreword to his first book within hours of the deadline.
  • Why so many people give up before miracles have a chance to show up.
  • How mentorship can activate your capacity for extraordinary effort – and how to make it an ordinary part of your life.
  • Why Sean says he goes through “seasons of discipline” and how finding love helped him conquer his urge to burn out.

DONATE TO SEAN’S GOFUNDME

Sean Stephenson dedicated his life to help others, before he left this world last week. Also, he leaves behind his wife, Mindie, who was left to deal with not only the unspeakable pain of losing her husband, she was also given a $50,000 medical bill for Sean’s emergency surgery.

If you are able, please consider taking a moment to help his wife, Mindie, and donate to Sean’s GoFundMe here.
