- How I Stepped out of Fear to Find Vibrancy
- What Does It Mean to Live a Vibrant Life?
- Hope to those facing significant life challenges (especially chronic disease) possible with a healthy lifestyle
Jon Chandonnet received the diagnosis that would change his life: Multiple-Sclerosis. MS knocked him down. It almost knocked him out but it didn’t. It motivated him to become more conscious and intentional about life, and put him on the path to vibrant living that otherwise might not have been found.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his late twenties, Jon Chandonnet
pushed himself to extremes in hopes it would allow him to get on the path of the life he was meant to live. But he was living in denial—out of balance with the ways that would allow him to maintain his health and well being.
The MS caught up to him in a fierce way. After two years of deterioration,
Jon could barely take care of himself. His wife and family convinced him
that he could no longer ignore the reality of his condition. He knew he had to turn things around, but traditional medications and treatments did little to stem the disease’s momentum.
Frustrated with the direction of his health, Jon decided to try something different.
Putting into practice his learnings about diet, exercise, spiritual
practices and conscious living, Jon has found a way not only to health and wellbeing—reversing many of his MS symptoms—but to a vibrant life, living with a disease trying to stop him in his tracks.
Jon shares his inspirational story of hope with audiences across the
country so others can see how a vibrant life, no matter what you face,
really is possible through conscious, daily practices. No matter what
happens, there is a way to create the life of your dreams.
During his journey, he has learned that insights are critical to maintaining vibrant well-being.
You have the power to change your life by changing your thoughts, actions, habits, and desires to live in harmony with your well-being.
Your body is programmed for health. If you clear out the junk, put in the right stuff (food, water, air, thoughts and emotions), exercise and stimulate it—health and well-being prevail.
Hope and love are absolutes. They’re the spark that compels you to act and help stay connected with yourself and those around you.
Since you can alter your beliefs, you are a co-creator in your life.
Your thoughts and actions in the here and now are critical determinants of your reality and your destiny.
Your life is not deterministic based on your past.
Emotions are meant to be expressed not locked away in a box.
Being in touch with them is critical to maintaining well-being.
Trial and error informs action; it all starts with action.
Changing course in life takes courage, strength and endurance, but over time, thought by thought, action by action, inertia can be over-come and a new path forged.
Energy is a key enabler; it’s at the heart of the matter.
Uncertainty is a good thing; questions are catalysts.
Routine provides great comfort, but a tremendous opportunity to change your life becomes available by changing your habits.
Enriching the lives of others, connected to your purpose, is at the heart of your happiness.
You don’t need to have MS to find well-being; it was just a portal.
