Sean Stephenson tells Me to "Get off your But!"

Yes, I spelled it right, BUT. Sean Stephenson was born in 1979 with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which means his bones are very brittle. So brittle, that he crushed every one of those baby bones during his birth. Doctors told his parents he would not live 24 hours. 30 years later, at 3 feet tall, he is changing the world! He graduated college, interned at the White House, and this year, wrote a book called "Get off your BUT". Sean says what holds us back in life is our"buts"..."but I'm not pretty enough...but I'm not smart enough...but I'm not strong enough." He says if we would just stop using those buts, we could achieve great things. He sure is! I was honored to interview Sean and we hit it off immediately. (Great sense of humor!) He showed me his work-out routine ( yes, the man who was told his bones were so brittle is now doing 100 push-ups and 100 situps a day!!! he has a mean six pack!), and recently threw out the first pitch at the White Sox game. He is a motivational speaker and also a practicing therapist. And what a family! the Stephensons are something special. Thanks for a great interview, Sean!!! Stay close for when his story will air on Inside Edition. I'll keep you posted friends. : ) - Megan
