Publisher's Summary

In the best-selling tradition of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly and Nick Vujicic's Life Without Limits comes a rousing seven-step plan for living a life on fire, filled with hope and possibility - from an inspirational speaker who survived a near-fatal fire at the age of nine and now runs a successful business inspiring people all around the world.

When John O'Leary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on 100 percent of his body, O'Leary 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 journey - his family, the medical staff, and total strangers - changed his life. Now he 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 Fire contains O'Leary's reflections on being that little boy, the life-giving choices made then, and the resulting lessons he learned. O'Leary 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 life's purpose.

On Fire encourages us to seize the power to choose our paths 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 events - the inflection points in our lives - that 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. We can't always choose the paths we walk, but we can choose how we walk them. Empowering, inspiring, remarkably honest, and heartfelt, O'Leary's strength and incredible spirit shine through in every minute.

    "Great Lessons"

    I had heard John's story before. But the lessons he brings in this book that he had to learn much harder than most of us ever will are inspiring. It proves that excuses are just that, and if you want to be successful only you can make that choice.

    "Burning with hope and faith"

    If one can listen or read this story of tragedy and triumph and not be inspired to live life at it's fullest intention, then there probably is no hope because I could not from the first words just sit idiot and not want to live more fully. I am going to listen to it again and again because it takes stories like this to keep the fire burning and reminding me it's not over yet. There is plenty of opportunity to live and be my greatest self.

    I loved it. It made me cry, laugh and reflect on my own life. I listened to the audible which was wonderful because the listener can hear O'Leary's emotion as he recounts his tragedy leading to beautiful moments of human kindness which led him to a life full of confidence and gratitude.
