Finding Strength Through a Life-Altering Accident

Tanner Gers was in a traumatic automobile accident at age 21, during which he was impaled in the face by a tree. His injury was so severe he lost much of the natural structure in his skull and lost his sight. His recovery was full of seemingly insignificant life-changing moments, like the first person to speak to him in public – a cashier who asked him “paper or plastic.”

In the dozen years since his accident, Tanner’s physical appearance isn’t the only thing that has changed. He is an entirely different person in action and purpose as well. Tanner is now a public speaker and podcaster. His one take away is this Jim Rohn quote:

Make plans like an adult, believe in them like a child.
