Mark Ormrod Headshot Podcast Hard Way.png

On Christmas Eve 2007, Royal Marines Commando Mark Ormrod was on patrol in the Helmand province of Afghanistan when he triggered an IED and lost both legs and one arm. Today, Mark is an internationally acclaimed motivational speaker, a peak performance coach, an entrepreneur and the author of the award-winning autobiography, Man Down. He is grit. He is resilience. He is the model of what it means to overcome.

I first met Mark when I wrote a feature about him in 2015. His story is one that has stuck with me and transformed how I think about life.

If you’ve ever come up against an obstacle in your life that felt too big to overcome or felt so low you never thought you’d get up again, Mark’s story might change your mind. His story moved me in a way few things ever have, and I think it will move you, too.

You can follow Mark on Twitter @markormrod, on Instagram @markormrod, on his YouTube channel and through his website,
