The Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show – LISTEN NOW – 24/7 On-Demand
During this interview Logan talks about how his dream to become a professional athlete was shattered in the blink of an eye with a single high school football tackle. He had it all, yet his destiny was to take his journey into a whole new direction of meaning and service. Logan also shares how the lesson from his coach that life is only 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it changed his life. Fueled by this wisdom, Logan is passionate about empowering anyone who has been knocked down in life so that they too can rise up again and find real joy and fulfillment in their lives.

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
Life-Changing Quote that inspired Logan Seelye after his spinal cord injury when he was just 16 years old that became
the seed for his newly-released inspirational book…
At age 16, Logan Seelye had a dream: he was going to earn a football scholarship at a Division 1 football program and then, somehow, some way, he was going to win a spot on an NFL team. Then, wham! A spinal cord injury shattered that dream forever.
Rather than tumbling into depression, Logan lifted himself up and pursued new life goals and rewards. At his college graduation, he delivered the commencement address just a few yards from the spot of his accident. He married his junior high school girlfriend, started a family, launched a career, and made a new vow: when his daughter got married he would walk her down the wedding aisle.
