Life sucks. The kids won’t get ready for school. The car has a flat tire. Your boss hands you another project that of course has to be done by the end of the day. Your world has so many limits that you could just scream. But what if you flipped the perspective and saw a world without limits.
Now imagine you’re a Type 1 diabetic, with a disability, and you suffer from depression. Life looks pretty limited. Then, one day you wake the FUCK up and realize, it’s all in your control to come out of your closet. Chris Ruden did just that. He owned his diabetes, his disability, and his depression and did everything in his power to step forward into being unlimited. Powerful, motivational, and a kick ass guy, Chris shows it what it means to live a bold life – no excuses, no fears, no apologies.
