2013 World Champion and 2014 Sochi Paralympic bronze medalist
Kevin Rempel is a 2013 World Champion and 2014 Sochi Paralympic bronze medalist in sledge hockey who has an incredible story of overcoming a tremendous amount of adversity.
Paralyzed after a motocross crash in 2006, Kevin had to face unsurmountable odds while learning to walk again at the age of 23. Adding to this, Kevin had to deal with his father, Gerry, who also was living in a wheelchair. While deer hunting, Gerry fell from a tree leaving him a complete paraplegic one year from retirement. Unfortunately Gerry couldn’t deal with living with his circumstances and took his own life in July 2007.
That following year, “Remps” as he likes to be called by his friends, found sledge hockey and set his sights on making Team Canada and playing in the Paralympics. Since then he has travelled the world, inspired thousands of people, and has been featured around the world on TSN, BBC Sport, CBC and CTV. Today, Kevin is focused on helping grow the sport of sledge hockey through his newest venture, the Sledge Hockey Experience.
Strong organizations thrive by having a group of individuals who do not place the blame on other people, their surroundings, or external circumstances.
These organizations thrive because individuals recognize the role they play in the company’s success, and by how accepting responsibility for their decisions, they begin to make subtle, yet significant changes to help drive results and embrace change.
These changes begin by having the right mindset - The Hero Mindset.
The Hero Mindset is about recognizing Hero Moments, Hero Decisions, and Hero Actions. Everyday there are moments where we can choose to accept responsibility to make a new decision. By taking things one step at a time, we begin to make real change happen by taking action to achieve the results we desire.
That is how you become the hero of your own movie.
