Game Changer Mentality

I’m Rodney Flowers—international best-selling author, speaker, entrepreneur, transformational leader, CEO, and resilience trainer.

I’ve guided the journeys of hundreds of people in search of fuller, happier lives—in spite of the inevitable setbacks that cross their paths. Thanks to the massive, lasting change they experience as a result of our work together, these courageous men and women often refer to me as a “giver of hope” and “source of inspiration.”

But don’t let these titles fool you. You see, I wasn’t always in a position where I was strong enough to help lift others up. Arriving at this fulfilled and fortunate place has been a long road paved with immense struggle.

When I was a young man, life unceremoniously issued a much less desirable label than those mentioned above—quadriplegic.

Today, I’m not only walking, driving, and weightlifting despite the odds. I’m living a life that most people only fantasize about. Traveling the world—check! Skydiving—check! Making a positive impact on individuals, businesses, and communities—check!

My story is inspirational to many, but I promise you there’s nothing inherently special about me. My story is merely proof that you CAN overcome. You CAN triumph. You CAN create a life you love. With the right mindset, tools, and strategies, you CAN prevail—regardless of the challenges that come your way.

There is no preparation for tragedy.
Despite all our best efforts, ingenious planning, and ambitious goals, no one can manipulate the future. The result of this ineptitude is that you can also never be sure what is waiting right around the corner for you.


On the Field of Dreams with Rodney Flowers

For many years I’ve been a devotee of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s work, and through his writing have cultivated an ever-deepening appreciation of Abraham Maslow’s definition and study of self-actualizing people. In Dyer’s 2014 memoir, I Can See Clearly Now, the author relates his mentor’s view…

It’s NOT about me! Ft. Rodney Flowers.

Like most people I have had a sense of wonder not only about the world we live in (our outer world), but also the world we think in (our inner world) for as long as I can remember. As I continue on this journey of life I will share with you my insights and also introduce you to the ordinary people I cross paths with who are achieving the extraordinary. I’m not talking about extraordinary as we traditionally perceive it with regards to success, I’m referring to those women and men who are living on purpose and sharing their unique gifts with the world – whatever those gifts may be.

That all changed when I was in a tragic accident and became a quadriplegic.

Be Committed but not Attached to your Game-Changing Vision

I want to share a personal story with you.

Going into my Sophomore year of high school, I thought I knew the vision for my life. I was so confident of the path ahead of me and I knew the exact steps I needed to take to reach my dreams. I thought I knew where I was going and who I was.

That all changed when I was in a tragic accident and became a quadriplegic.
