Marquette hi can Cordelia founder president and author and head that's. I look forward to that day as we had a conversation he said look I can talk all day long but to sit down and right.

And until I went on your website against David cook's enterprises dot com. I didn't know what prince who will chair. I didn't know this and and I've been asked and I said I don't know that it all fits it's a subject that was and comfortable in the beginning of our friendship reader bring up. Or am I just didn't I just and never dead end so that I read your bio and its appointees you fifteenth. Is when this happened. Can we talk a little bit about that time you're Smart serial it was talk about sentenced around you your feed to your fees to its star prior to that you guys I gave my electric Chrysler I was thirteen years oh okay I didn't know exactly what that meant at the time out of and I knew that. I won a crisis a run my life and I want to spend eternity with. And so at age thirteen and I remember I remember telling Chrysler and you're going to give you my life and whatever happens you're in control. And so it best when I started to serve crisis a's thirteen. So wind when this happened around at fifteen and and did you was a spinal and your ism yes. Leaving new T six occur police you can I don't really understand what that means but I know you've been in a wheelchair that's what I know. I know what I see I guess. Yeah well you know I'll walk you two were really quick it was a it was a Friday October 19 of 1979. It was a school day we had exams going in and Alex play basketball and so after the that that the exams on into the gym and and we play a little bit. My nickname was Gus Williams for those who can remember that I can't guys know you just look the more at Joe's story the better player I was super pickle we won't talk about that right now. But dialogue back pain didn't think much of could I just had a physical because trials were the following week. And calm within 24 hours of blood vessel had erupted on my spinal cord. And it's been 37 years now that I have been we'll show you. No it it you make it look easy Yi Yi even you don't want to be honest truth yet the last 45 years. I haven't even thought about you you know any other way that is my friend and and the things that we talk about. Move both on the record in profits on record by. And and so it it's in trusting you make it look easy cannot be an easy life. Where you know guns god has made somehow give me the grease to make this look easy. Must I deal with struggles and challenges every day of of this. Lights presents me and so when I talk about overcoming obstacles and and achieving I really have to do a daily basis I the one thing I've learned in this wall 37 years. Of being in this world shares this is take one day at a time. One moment at a time when you do that I think it does look easy. From the outside in but it is challenge. You know and when you look at your bio. And you look at some of the things that that you've accomplished. You know you see you went to duke and I yours your MBA in finance from duke. Your year PA from from Whitewater. Your current path included banking finance education athletics. And if it doesn't surprise me at all any event unless and until you see look at at the age of fifteen this is what happened. There's a I would I would assume maybe I'm assuming wrong but a lot of people that that fifteen. That this would have happened to. Would have said look you don't want I am not gonna continue down this path. Yet I I think that for me Tom Hughes is a closer Taobao face family and friends but. But the reality of it is it was true for me. That. My faith in Christ really propelled me to ask what is my next move. My family was therefore me and my friends were there and I know that there are many people who face challenges in a try to tell met adversity. Doesn't define who you are but it can define the rose should take to your destiny. And so my destiny never changed my circumstances did and so I just. Just decided that I was going to be successful use their goals that I still have and I want to obtain them in saws and move forward in that direction. We're we're there or they're nice you know they're still nights where where you knew you close your eyes you see in Florida. I don't get it you're you know sometimes. It is just a cold and and you wanna think it's a dream. But but it's not I mean you wanna wake up from this and then wish it was something else but I think that. Tom one of the things that I learned is to cast all of my care on on him because he cares for me. And soul every day. When I go to bed I know that I've had all the mercy that I need for that day. And is as sometime midday is very difficult but I know that the next day I get a new set mercies to help me get through that next. You know what that's called strong your faith. Men Ed that that's what that is I one of my favorite stories. With few. Is I invited uses stakeout Ed Ed Brooke's side that's his church. And you run a little bit late that day. And he got there and and what what that is immense stake out is is they've they bring in a company that cook steaks and detained as an irony for these guys. And then we eat we have little fellowship time in and there's there's some guest speakers. And you run rule late so I waited to make sure I got my stick when you've got years. And fix we got ours pretty much last in. You know you're eating yours I had we had plastic forks and knives and I hit the four can a couple of the today the little low part of the four broke off so I couldn't really eat. So I get up to go to new four combat time I got back a tick the statement went that your new tables and jury in your steak ice event you'd in my QB some regulate and is really good pitch and I thought it catches he's laid out not eat you as I did apologize to work for being married to him about what the but I ask you that night coaching your coach and a Marquette at the time. And that's did you ever get nervous coach. And you said Nadal never I I get nervous preached. Has it really he's the I did I get nervous before I preach but why would they get nervous there for a coach who seemed like an odd question to you. And as I said. I just wondered does that still get nervous before every game and you laughed and he said I know are now I just get nervousness is to basketball game. But I didn't nursed for a preach the word yeah. Where you know sentencing I dome. To bring clarity that statement. You know there's an excitement that comes with basketball honors of incitement excitement that comes when you are speaking and sharing your faith. And when it comes to the gospel you know he's just wanted to make sure that you've heard from god properly and that he is speaking through you into youth to the people. And so that's where you have a little bit more of heightened awareness can look at. When you do that then when no one coach in basketball but the they're both are important to me in anything that's important to me anyway I can get a little bit. Nervous and fidgety about until I'm in it now while some and that. We're good. Right you know it's that the flow was there and and and then we get it doesn't do you miss an and we got to get to break but he do you miss. Be the head basketball coach a mark and I. No I don't you know I I think that dom. That time has come and gone a Mets season is over I enjoyed being an assistant coach at the college level. And still building relationships with young people because that's really. What I do that's what I think was what I'm gifted to do and so it's just a different avenue. And I'm using now and I don't have all the responsibility. On that would have as a head coach what I have learned how to be a great assistant coach. From my assistant coaches that I had. And and as wanna serve and MS and I love doing a little service that. You I think. And in I've been an assistant coach now with coach while China for awhile. And and I think the number one trait of a good assistant coach is loyalty. EE you don't want that guy's job. On you when you I will challenge coach Walsh time will be in a coach's office and we will go at it pretty hard. But once that door opens lockstep ban which he says goes he it's his you know he's ahead of the program. And if I say we need to play zone and he's saying no we're gonna play man and we walk out. And a parent comes up this isn't and you guys should play some zone unlike now absolutely not here's what. You know I am in lockstep with him and I would throw myself confirm a bus for. You know I just would end because it will too in love that I feel for him as as good vision you know the head coach in this program. Have similar I think you know loyalty. Transcends profession. And and is something about being unified. And have a unified front. And that's one thing that you say iron sharpens iron as the scripture tells us. And so there's place for us to have conversations and to have conflict but once time took so it took come out in the public. The leader is a one we support and we should be on 11 page I think this is great. Guys really get to break. Trust me go to David cook's. Enterprises dot com one word. Or if you if you is feeling led to call him and we're gonna talk about he's speaking engagements in some of the things he would bring. If you if you're looking for a for speaker leadership and coached team and a number of different. Aries not heeded those as the show goes on. You can again go to David cook's enterprises dot com or give Mo call at 414507. 7677. 5077677. Or continue or conversation with coach cooks on the other side to break this is faith in his own. I'm sport treaty 1057. At them. The fans. Back to face in the zone the journey on how people in sports walking pace. Thief in the zone is brought to you by bundles of old fashioned meat market. Here's host Mike may give her. And pastor can kill her. Plus sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. Mean. My special guest. Special friend I should say in studio man he's just he's my guy he is the current assistant coach at Concord University. Former market high school basketball coach and he's the president and founder of David cook's enterprises. He's David cook's coach we get a chance to talk at the WBY shootout. And I knew I knew that you weren't feeling well from following me on FaceBook but I wasn't sure what was going up. And I get a chance struck Sean Cassidy kind of get the reader's digest version and then you came in and we said in in their past tally room for awhile. And that's how you feeling cica and so what's going on I couldn't find out from FaceBook exactly what happened. And when he told me the story. I immediately said would you come and Satan zone because the war has had his hand in this and if you could let's let's talk about that trip to Boston. Why am I had back in September of 2017 I booked a trip to go to Boston on December 5. I was going there to do a speaking engagement. And on December 4 after church that Sunday. After I got in the car begin have a shortness of breath and the growth that afternoon and evening I would find myself. Having trouble breathing just over the smallest activity. And so I'd told my wife we prayed about it and I said well you know if I don't feel any better tomorrow morning. I'm gonna go to ER and I'm just gonna have this trip canceled. And so there is a big truck this is a big trip this was this just is the trip. That was going users who really catapult me on a national scale in terms of bookings and things like that from a speaking standpoint. So went to bed. Got to the next morning and not I felt really really good my wife even says you look consistency that often. And a potential threat especially suited for it and I said okay let's go ahead on Google it and make the trip. And so mom I get to the airport and as I'm getting to the Arctic account arm from a little tired but okay so I have some of them with my bags that kind of stuff. I get on the flight. And about three quarters of the way through the flight I'm really struggling with breathing in and getting comfortable and and so. I asked the flight attendant if I can have some water to stump I feel dehydrated. And does not sure what's happening. So they come back in May ask mr. elect to have some oxygen. And you know me as an accident kill anybody so I'll take some oxygen you know but yeah there are so different so in my breathing became better instantly. And serbians as this kind of things like what something's wrong with my oxygen levels so I asked to fly it's in that they can have the paramedics meet me in the jet way. And take me to an emergency room because I had about three and a half hours in between when the plane landed and when house posts speak. And so I was thinking that this is some sort of virus and have been plenty of time for me to get checked out. So we get to the emergency room. And they run some tests and they come McNamee tell me. What you're not going to be giving your speech today you have a some massive blood clot in your lungs. And we need to figure out what to do about treating its what does it say some massive. Clear class a sort of axis of Massaquoi Nestle SAI know what the word massive means that's normally large yes in some of the our insurer. What that meant so what they said was that. The blood clot didn't cover both sides of my heart but just one side so wasn't. Massive mass OK okay now was comforting I guess I guess expected to get minutes so while you're here in Europe there by yourself I'm out there by myself. That's that's that's the scary part pay cash for me I. I would want my wife next to me for though yes I'm out I'm out there by myself and solo was about to use this information. I I called my brother in law. Who was a doctorate. And he lives in Baltimore Maryland and I just called him give him the update on port where I am so he can talk to the Stanley that type stuff. And the first thing out of his mouth is you know where are you gonna supplement Mass. General. And is an OS the best hospital in the in the country for a treat blood clots during a great spot. That's the first thing the first sign that. You okay let me just try to figure out what's going on here because. They could've taken me to a number of hospitals in Boston in there are a number of very good hostels and balsam that is happen to take me to the one. That treats blood clots. Better than anybody is in the country in the country at talks in the country so. Soriano. And amen and amen I'm in the emergency room and remember. There are no loans to admit but they wanna admit me. But they can't admit me because there are no room so I'm in ER. For approximately a 36 hours and so it. So after after they days giving information and I and I talked to my brother in law. I actually as say a prayer that's on about his congress. And I ask god if he would honor the life that I've lived for him. Because that's all I had to offers a life that I live for him. And I cigar which honor in my life allows I don't wanna get back home and I went to sleep. So later that. Evening the doctor comes in to see me talk about potential procedures. And the doctor says to me to close the door. It uses I like to talk to you like you my brother. Innocent okay well no doctors don't do that but let's see what he's got to say we was concerned because. They need to do procedure but there were no bears in the hospital in the news a bit in icu but there was no bid so I hadn't eaten because I'm an emergency room. I've been numerous appearances 1 o'clock is now 11 o'clock. The next day they don't know if I'm gonna get to eat at all so he feels bad for me any sesame. You know on and it'll buy you a meal right now. I look in his 11 o'clock at night. You're gonna buy me a meal where you gonna get a meal from that's what I'm thinking as a cafeterias clearly clos most. Well he comes back with a very very tasty. Turkey butternut squash. Spinach salad. Color with the columns. Not that. Not bad for 11 o'clock at 9 point 11 o'clock at night now I'm thinking. This must be the guy that my brother on O'Donnell's this past to be him right because who's gonna or whatnot there's gonna buy you some food right. Well it turns out that wasn't my brother in law meant. It turns out that he was over the top doctor on the doctors of on the team of doctors who treat me so that was that was one thing. So the next day we on a rule what was up and icu. And the procedures about to begin. And what. A person walks as a procedural. And says hi I am so and so and Tom I know your brother in law gem is your wife here as a one off you should be here tomorrow we can get a flown out yet. And its the person says well if she needs a place to say or she needs a car anything just let me know will be taken care all that for. Okay well well well thank you mementos nice this mice and also I don't think much of it. Put on notice when she came and the doctors were all. Like at attention and just talking to each other on the wheel who was a slightly yeah. Well it turns out the she was the chief of physicians she runs the hospital. So she if she comes in just to check and just to check. Just to check I've never met her in my life. And so so not only am I at the best hospital in the country. Not only MI getting the care from the top doctors that are there now I have the person in charge of the entire hospital overseeing Mike. It's not path. That's not bad that's not that they're not bad that they've but put it don't it only keeps getting better. So we complete the procedure in the procedure was greats. I'm you have to stay on your back for twelve hours and Obama Bly and sold the doctor comes up the next day. And he says man things are really good and I think we're going to be to unplug and all these sorts of things and so it's they began to. Oh recap why it was out there they're asking questions and felt bad that I come out there to speak and wasn't able to do that that kind of stuff and so. I says to the doctor as well. Hey you you know anybody and given out business cards on icu bus remarks he keeps up Isiah if you know anybody. There's little persona come and speak I do a lot of different things here's my card. And the doctor said to me where mom let me give this to my wife because she's done Ted talks. Now for people who understand. Understand you public streaking tete talks is like the highest level of public speaking that you can be honored whiff. And you seem can be seen all over the world huge Italy and watch a lot of those here Gunner come in the sales department Jack and so all of a sudden here's a contact for that Michael okay. Heat he leaves the room and then. The chief of positions shields up. And doesn't identifiers of the sadness Jesus talking and talking and and nom talking to the nurses and everything and and she says to me you know I'd like to get you back out here if we possibly can under some different circumstances I think our organization would benefit from hearing from you. Oh well let me give you car trouble review to let me give let me give you to be sold not how the people in icu. Wondering who I. And I tell them mine name and my birthday. Because that's what I thought they were asking he'd. It. Where they were asking was why are you getting all this paper who you know you must be somebody important. And so. That it it it continued with this. There were no beds available so I was an icu. For almost three days. Getting around the clock care that I did not need. Being overseen. By the chief of physicians. And having the top team. For this blood clot taking care. So you you get all that you get all of these things happening. And I could have gone to the emergency room here in Wisconsin. On Sunday night. And end would have probably gotten great care homeless. However. The fact that you woke up feeling good until you were three quarters of the way on that flight is if it's a new one quarter. I. Atlanta Hawks to distribute it gets you to a hospital to us. And that's a hospital to hospital. And nobody knows what's going on at that point no it's not like he said look at at the camera blood quite give me the grace hospital in the country that knows what caused. You're having trouble breathing out central breeding. So sold now it it it it gets better. Because when I got ready to leave. And get to the airport. There were three witnesses. Scripture talks about let everything led every word be established by three credible witnesses well I have three credible witnesses. One was a person who helped me get off the point. And what they said to me was. What she said to me was first of all I can't believe you made the flight out here. Secondly. If I hadn't seen you before Allen of Melbourne now how sick you. Asked the first person and America who passengers. That flew out that war flying back with me that went to get their family members. I gave the business are sober now and thin and expect it yet and they said to me while you look incredible. You did not look very good coming out here in NASA what I believe I got a miracle I said I feel great. We get on the plane. We fly back. The doctor told me that I would have some breathing difficulties. Probably over the next thirty days or so. Well I got to up off the flight and I rolled the entire concourse. To the car. I was tired because ahead and done anything for a week bright but I was not when did or out of breath. At all and haven't experienced one Prius moments. Of short breath. I'm just Tanya you know what the board put his heads around you. I truly believe that you you can't that's not a coincidence meant no studio too many of Libby and and enemies at two more things can hurt you bet. Price three I want to see my my local doctor about a week ago. And he asked me what happened. And I I assume you read the charts. So I told him what I thought god had done the story I just told you bright here's what I told him and you know what he says to me. This doesn't happen you need to write that down this has to be gone. As it has to two other things on November 29 which is Tuesday. I received a text message from someone prophetic word essay that. There's going to be a shift in your health. Your health is about to turn around it may not look like it but you server supernatural god. May god is about to breathe in your direction in a new way. So I get this text on November 29 there I just put that on the shelf because I'm believing that for my life from whenever it's gonna happen. When I got up on the morning of December 5. Took to to fly to Boston. There was techs and someone in Atlanta on my phone. They have been praying for me and they say that this is what I believe god is saying. He started off by saying I am the breath of life. And the shortness of breath and you've been experiencing. Is because I'm about to breathe new life into you for your next assignment. I need future relax. Taken a deep breath. And receive your healing. And it also went on to say. You will not need to say anything your presence alone will be enough. I had no idea what any of that magnets for it because I'm born in Boston to speak I have to talk. So this must be referring to something else well it wasn't no I've I've goose bumps up and down Mars probe it turned out. That God's soften it. So slimy to Boston. And orchestrate. My healing. A big plans for you man it's an amazing thing I plant it's an amazing thing. He is David cook's encoded David cook's enterprises dot com. David cook's enterprises that comp for a 145077677.

I would highly recommend calling him 414507. 76775077677. First of all that storied Boston we can do the whole show one it is you left out some stuff because if for time purposes. And it again if one of those things happen coach. Okay Russ quit since two things may be. Put the amount of things that look you know I feel by the soak our displeasure healthy. Rather than I did feel it is great to be here is good to be alive I don't fear death or anything like that but. I'm just glad that my my assignment on earth has not done and that I have another story detail now I have another chapter in the book to write. In a who hit it will be about the Boston X well and when to book. But also when your out speaking yes you don't even have to US TV tickle notes on this thing no eureka I'm ready to you and we'll roll right there are going man speaking of that when you get asked to speak. And there's on your website visitors a number of topics. That you'd that you have and will speak on camera go through this quickly overcome adversity. Teamwork effective leadership diversity. And coaching. And you could pick and he goes in you're pretty much an expert talk about overcoming adversity okay. Related team hard at an effective leadership diversity. An and coaching. All really strong when you win when somebody calls you were the go to your website. And they they reach out you to come speak to their group. How was it chosen what topic you're getting you're gonna speak out. Well I think one of the things that I tried to express with people is that you're going to get my story you're going to get my personal life experiences. And how they can apply and hopefully inspire and prepare you to meet your own challenges. So bomb. The UV the overcoming obstacles is clearly more about my life than any of the other topics that we have. Humble we talk about teamwork. Com and met that allows some reason use some of my coaching experience and how to develop a team Hala how are you staff how to identify roles for. Your players employees that type of soaps are so little teamwork thing has taken on. AA management level. Of conversation. For business as well as just general coaching. I'm so sold so they cancel the answer the answer is. You know I can actually adjust myself. Or just not myself what I just touches your typing my speed going on the tube to meet whatever your needs are you know. So if somebody says look effective leadership diversity or are cold Sheehan if they say you look weak need all that bad. We we wanna hear your story because your story look EU I would think that almost any time you won't speak. People are gonna notice your wheelchair right right what are you say pair guest speakers and so the overcoming adversity. Is how I would think you probably start to say look here's what's gonna yes it would have yes you always you always begin with. 37 years ago this is experience and I have daily challenges in this is how I. Approach life. And so part of what I try to do is give people a way to approach life so they can overcome what ever the ops coolest. I I don't believe that obstacles were ever designed to stop you I think there were only makes stripping him. Because of government to stop you would die. And I want people to understand that. And whether that's building a team. Whether that's. And learning how to to coach and and and inspire people that's what this is really all about and so I I try to really. Make its source practical. People love to hear about you know what happened to you how is that how did how was it coaching at duke how was apparently with coach K how was it doing USA basketball so vols are all stories of people are interest it and and that can provide insight. Into. The cultural environment into diversity into overcoming obstacles. And into incident teamwork. You know win and we temporary we did talk about this early on I said you went to duke which it eat your part of their staff and on your website there's a video from coach K.
