Dr John Demartini wasn’t always an inspirational speaker and human behavioral specialist. He was not born with all the answers. He had to experience life at its hardest and overcome many challenges to become what he is today. Maybe that is the best thing to learn from this well known inspirational public speaker. Knowing that it is possible to overcome physical and learning disabilities and conquer the world in your own way. Finding just the right place to shine and prosper can make all the difference in a person’s future life. The key is finding out about one’s self and learning to harness what is good about that person and use it.
In The Beginning…
John Demartini was born November 25th in 1954 in Houston, Texas. He was born with a birth defect that required wearing both hand and leg braces as treatment. He also had dyslexia and a speech impediment. Back then, there wasn’t any early diagnosis or treatment and his first-grade teacher told his parents he would never read, write, or amount to much of anything. How cruel. It is no wonder that, with a school experience such as that, he left school at the tender age of 14 and headed for Hawaii. But, at age 17 John nearly died from strychnine poisoning.
Luckily, as he was recovering, he met a 93-year-old man who changed his life. Paul Bragg showed the young man how to transform his life and become a philosopher and a teacher. With his inspiration and support, young John Demartini overcame his learning disabilities and limitations and mastered reading and writing. He then concentrated on learning what was needed to pass his SATs and be accepted into the University of Houston. In 1978, he successfully completed a bachelor of science degree, then went on to the Texas Chiropractic College where he graduated in 1982 at the top of his class with Magna Cum Laude honors. His quest for knowledge did not end there, and he has spent over 36 years researching over 260 different areas of knowledge. Some of these include economics, psychology, cosmology, sociology, theology, and biology.
