You can do the impossible, too!

How One Man Overcame Tourette's Syndrome to Become an Acclaimed Professional Magician, and How You, Too, Can Live Your Biggest, Boldest Life


the Tourette Association of america reports that 1 in every 160 children in the united states have Tourette's Syndrome (T.S.) and that 1 in every 100 children have T.S. or another tic disorder.

Tourette Syndrome Tics affect the ability to control movement and make it difficult - even impossible - to do the routine things in life.

According to Jason Michaels, who lives with Tourette Syndrome, "The world is filled with people who tell us things are impossible. My life, for the last twenty-five years, has been about doing the impossible by overcoming an uncontrollable movement disorder to become an award-winning magician, speaker, and entertainer."

In this segment Jason will share from his brand new book and recent TEDx talk about how your viewers "can do the impossible" in their own lives by following Jason's "Live B.I.G" formula. Your audience will learn how Belief shapes our lives, why Imagination helps us see beyond present frustrations, and how to Go Forth and live bigger, fuller lives.
