Interview #6 - Jimmy Clare - Overcoming Obstacles & Road Blocks
Jimmy Clare is a motivational speaker, Autism Advocate, author, and founder of CrazyFitnessGuy. But before he started his career as a speaker it was a bumpy road when he was younger.
What Makes Jimmy So Unique?
Jimmy Clare is Autistic but he likes to refer to it as "slightly Autistic" because he doesn't have it severe like others.
Overcoming Many Obstacles And Road Blocks
Growing up doctors told Jimmy's parents that he will not be able to walk without braces or crutches.
He was also bullied in school from elementary school all the way up to high school. Jimmy then stood up to all the bullies and got some of them expelled.
He went through nine ear surgeries, and three surgeries in one day. One for 6 wisdom teeth, 2 moles, and the last ear surgery that made number 9.
Jimmy just keeps proving people wrong with his persistence time after time again.
On top of those obstacles, he lives with spinal stenosis every day. For those that don't know what Spinal Stenosis is it's where the spine is pressing tight on the spinal cord. Which makes it hard for Jimmy to turn his head from left to right or up and down.
Dedicated And Continues To Better Himself
Every day Jimmy continues to better himself by working out 6 to 9 times a week. three days a week he practices kickboxing while on the other days he works out on Beachbody on Demand. That's why people refer to him as CrazyFitnessGuy
He also enjoys reading books that he schedules time out of the day to read. But that's not all he also likes to listen to podcasts about improving oneself and time management.
Practices What He Preaches
Jimmy practices what he preaches every day even if he messes up he keeps trying. He is one of a kind that no one can replace or replicate him.
