73. Winston Clements – Breaking Your Limiting Barriers

In this episode, Lance and Winston Clements talk about breaking through limiting barriers. Winston dives into how he became empowered to inspire 1 billion people and his journey to create a world without limitations.

Winston was born with a condition known as Brittle Bone Disease, which stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile. Due to his condition, he broke bones 150 times all by the age of 12. This condition limited him especially during childhood because he had to undergo numerous surgeries and missed out at having a normal childhood.

The turning point for Winston came many years later, after he had successfully graduated from University with a degree in Computer Science. He then struggled with finding employment due to his condition. After years of struggle, he decided to stop comparing his life to other people and stop letting his disability define him as a person. Breaking through his self-imposed barriers empowered him to build a successful tech career with some of the largest corporations in the world.

Winston is now an award winning international business speaker, TEDx speaker, and trainer of organizations on the topics of Resilience, Change Management, Diversity & Inclusion.

Winston tells listeners: “When you have the urge to do something different, then give it a try.”
