Sean Stephenson may only be a 2-foot-8-inch man, but his global reach and message is undeniable.
I asked if Sean would come on the show, having heard of him before from my friends at Summit Series, but never having imagined I’d meet a philosopher and psychotherapist all in one.
Doctors said Sean wouldn’t live beyond age 1 due to Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bone disease). He’s now 35 and proudly says “I’ve outlived most of the doctors that mis-diagnosed me.”
He willingly addresses my probing about his sex life and his marriage, addressing recent tabloid rumors that he’s unable to satisfy his wife sexually. Apparently everyone talks about his sex life, but never to him. He was happy for the question. He has shared the stage and friendship with Bill Clinton, the 14th Dalai Lama and Tony Robbins.
“We work because we’re trying to figure out ourselves… the best speeches I’ve given are the ones where I’ve gotten on stage and spoken to myself.”
This episode is for anyone with any physical, mental or emotional handicap, and thanks to Sean, you can recognize that you are not your condition.
