The Unbreakable Spirit of the Unbreakable Man

by Maxine Steele

Book Image Not Available
Overview
When a lightning-struck tree fell on Nicholas Steele in 2008, it did more than just paralyze him: ultimately, it broke his wife's spirit, destroyed his marriage, and ripped his family apart. Nicholas found himself pounded by setback after setback, like some modern-day Biblical Job, tested by God for reasons beyond his comprehension. But despite the cards Fate dealt him, Nicholas refused to give in to despair. When the doctors told him he would never walk again, he literally forced himself to heal, until he could once again stand on his own two feet and move under his own power. Even as Nicholas found God during the long, difficult heart-rending journey from injury to recovery, he lost so much that he took for granted—including the love of his soulmate, which almost killed him in the end. But despite the constant physical agony, and the chilling pain of personal betrayal, he persevered in his effort to rebuild his life and health. Today, Nicholas has finally climbed back to the top of his personal mountain, as chronicled in this triumphant memoir. He's living proof that the human spirit truly is unbreakable, if you're determined to keep stepping forward, learning from your mistakes, refusing to let despair hinder you. No matter how broken you may be in body, reputation, or spirit, you'll never fail as long as you refuse to give up. We've all heard this before—so often, perhaps, that many of us view it as a cliché. But Nicholas Steele has learned this lesson the hard way. We invite you to relearn it with him.
Description
My name is Nicholas Steele, and they call me the Unbreakable Man. I have an amazing story to tell, and every word of it is true: the horrors, heartbreaks, miracles, and triumph. When a lightning-struck tree fell on me in 2008, it did more than just paralyze me from the neck down: ultimately, it broke my wife's spirit, destroyed my marriage, and ripped my family apart. I found myself pounded by setback after setback. But despite the cards Fate dealt me, I refused to give in to despair. When the doctors told me I would never walk again, I literally forced myself to heal, until I could once again stand on my own two feet and move under my own power Sometimes, I wonder if I'm not the modern equivalent of the Biblical Job, tested by God for reasons beyond my comprehension. But whatever has come my way, however the weight of circumstances has bowed me down and tried to obliterate my spark, I have refused to give up. I keep climbing back to my feet, even when people tell me it's literally impossible to do so. I have refused to give up hope. I have refused to accept the ending I was written, but have changed it, against all the odds. I don't say this to boast, but in the hope that I can inspire others to do the same; or at the very least, to know it's possible, no matter what trials they've undergone, or are currently suffering. The human spirit truly is unbreakable, if you're determined to keep stepping forward, learning from your mistakes, refusing to let despair hinder you. Take it from me: I've been there, and made it through the fire; not unchanged, but forged into something new and stronger. No matter how broken you may be in body, reputation, or spirit, you'll never fail as long as you refuse to give up. We've all heard this before—so often, perhaps, that it's become trite in most of our minds. But I've learned this lesson the hard way. I invite you to relearn it with me.
