Fostering Change Podcast | Zion Clark: Learning to Leverage Struggles to Survive and Thrive at the Highest Levels

You may know the name Zion Clark, whose catchphrase is:

“You Don’t Need Legs To Leave A Footprint On Earth”


Did you watch his documentary on Netflix: Zion?

Maybe you saw him on America’s Got Talent?

Or, you read his book, “Work With What You Got: A Memoir


Today, Rob Scheer speaks with this amazing All-American wrestler, MMA fighter, Guinness World Record holder, and an internationally acclaimed speaker who infuses humor, wit, powerful life lessons, and infectious energy into each and every presentation that he gives—allowing him to connect with audiences on a level that is undeniably unparalleled. ​


Perhaps most importantly, he is singularly—and uniquely—ZION.


Standing at just over three feet tall and weighing 110 pounds, he competes against “able-bodied” athletes and has his eyes set on competing in both the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024. ​


Born into the foster care system with a rare birth defect called Caudal Regression Syndrome that left him without legs, Zion has faced countless struggles that he has not only had to overcome to survive, but that he has learned to leverage in order to thrive at the highest levels against all odds. ​


His overriding winning-mentality has made him an inspiration to millions of people around the world, and he is just getting started. ​


Zion boasts over one million Instagram followers, two million followers on TikTok, and has amassed over 40 million YouTube views of his Guinness World Record achievement.


These are the 3 things Zion leveraged in order to create the life he has for himself. It’s through these you’ll be able to gain:

✅ A new perspective on life

✅ Confidence knowing you can accomplish what you set your mind to

✅ Freedom to live without limitations… with no excuses
