Sascha’s story and reason for doing what he is doing
Sascha was born very disabled with a condition called spina bifida, an open back - more precisely in medical terms lumbosacral meningomyelocele, additionally he was born with hydrocephalus and Arnold Chiari II Syndrome.
What does all of this mean?
According to the medical community, his disability should have left him in a wheelchair, mentally challenged, and dead at a young age.
He also was mentally abused by his own mother who committed her life to destroy his in every way possible for 34 long years before she committed suicide hoping she would ruin the rest of his life with it. His father died when he was just 16. At school, he was severely bullied because he was different from the other kids with his disability.
But, for Sascha, these were just a few of the challenges he overcame very successfully in every way in his life. When many would have felt victimized and would have given up a long time ago, Sascha overpowered all of his challenges to beat the odds in every way possible and to rise above and beyond himself.
Today, he is teaching others how they too can go above and beyond for themselves even when everything seems to be stacked up against them. Sascha does that by teaching you the life-tested principles, and the right usage and combination of those principles, he has used himself to overcome and to be victorious in every way in his life.

You can get his book, From Victim To Victory, A Leadership Journey, Level 1 Core Principles everywhere books are sold.
In this book, Sascha relates, in the first part, the size, intensity, and difficulty of his life challenges (there is more than what has been mentioned here).

As you will read in his book, a "true victory" is a victory that doesn't come at the expense of somebody else, but a victory that makes everybody concerned win, like walking when he was told he could never walk; like going to the best universities when he was told he would be mentally challenged. We all win with Sascha's true victories, because we have him as an active member of society, distilling his wisdom and knowledge to his audience.
