Arnold's 3 Steps for SUCCESS:  Information Of Interest:

Born with Cerebral Palsy, Arnold Nordstrom has overcome extremely limited control of his limbs, a speech impediment and almost complete dependency on others for personal care, to obtain his goals and reach for his dreams.  By recognizing the Golden Potential within his own handicapped body he continues to achieve beyond all expectations.  Arnold is now reaching out to  share what he has learned about recognizing the potential and assist others in doing the same.

Arnold loves to teach what he has experienced and learned.  Don't let outward appearances deceive you.  Arnold is a dynamic speaker able to engage audiences of all ages and abilities.  Arnold has successfully spoken at conferences of large international audiences (Expo '86 - Vancouver, Circle K International - Anaheim, Secondary Education for the Disabled - Austria) as well as to small, personal gatherings.  We all have handicaps, visible or not, that can obstruct us from achieving our full potential.  We could all benefit from hearing what Arnold has to share.

Arnold is available to present a variety of messages to Business, Community and Education Organizations as well as classrooms of Elementary, Middle and High School children, College, University and Adult Education.  His inspiring and empowering message is able to assist employers, employees and students of all ages in recognizing and achieving their full potential.

Keep watching here for the availability of soon-to-be-published books of inspiration, motivation and determination by Arnold Nordstrom.
