The Man. Blaise Winter is
living proof of the POWER OF MIND AND BODY. Born with a cleft lip
and palate, he underwent many surgeriesand long hours of speech
therapy. Tumors removed in each ear resulted in deafness in one
The Power of Mind and Body
Mistakenly placed in a class for mentally retarded children, Blaise
rejected feelings of self-doubt and low self-esteem finding acceptance
through sports. "Sports," Blaise says, "were a way for me to
speak without opening my mouth." However, the experts said he had
no physical athletic talent. Blaise's response was to develop a
habit of positive self-talk that has dominated his life.
The Mission. Blaise again
proved the experts wrong by being named MVP of Syracuse University in
1983. Not only was he drafted into the NFL, but he went on to
play 11 years of professional football and ended his NFL career with a
Championship ring! Blaise played for the Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers and San Diego Charges.
Blaise's habit of beating the odds led him to discover a new purpose in
life as a motivational/inspirational speaker. He is determined to
strengthen the core of mankind by teaching people to believe in
themselves, to destroy obstacles and to become relentless in the
pursuit of their dreams.
The Message. "A
self-made man with flaws," Blaise has a unique ability to touch all
audiences. According to Blaise, "I'm human. I'm not a
clone, a dictionary or super hero." He speaks with a fresh and
sincere style which echo's with passion. Be it laughing one moment
or stone silent the next, the message is clear — Blaise convinces his
audience that they can make a difference.
