When John OLeary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on one-hundred percent of his body, OLeary mustered an almost unimaginable amount of inner strength just to survive the ordeal. The insights he gained through this experience and the heroes who stepped into his life to help him through the journeyhis family, the medical staff, and total strangerschanged his life. He now is committed to living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same.
An incredible and emotionally honest account of triumph over tragedy, On Firecontains OLearys reflections on being that little boy, the life-giving choices made then, and the resulting lessons he learned. These teachings not only ensured his survival in the hospital, but strengthened his ability to grow as a person and thrive in life. OLeary very clearly shares that without the right people, providing the right guidance, at the right time, he never would have made it through those five months in the hospital, let alone the years that followed as he struggled to regain mobility, embrace his story, and ignite clarity of his lifes purpose.
On Fire encourages us to seize the power to choose our path and transform our lives from mundane to extraordinary. Once we stop thinking solely on the big moments in our lives, we can begin to focus on those smaller opportunities that tend to pass us by. These are the eventsthe inflection points in our livesthat can determine how we feel about life now, where we are headed in the future, and how many lives we can impact along the way. As OLeary famously says, You cant always choose the path you walk in life, but you can choose the manner in which you walk it.
