"The book is ample proof of the capacity of a human being to rise above tragedy."

Captain of my soul

Mastering a Destiny Altered

Sometimes one event can utterly change the course of your life, and the only thing you can do is try and move forward. How you move forward, though, is entirely in your hands.

David Rippy was twenty-five years old and just beginning a promising career with a Fortune 50 company when he was in a horrific car accident. The crash left him paralyzed from the shoulders down, and his sudden change from an athletic young man to a quadriplegic was drastic and, at times, devastating. Yet David never stopped pursuing his dreams.

Despite the challenging economy and the competitive job market, David became a money manager by setting goals he eventually accomplished and realized his dreams. He went on to build a storied career that included working for Merrill Lynch and the Vanguard Group before he retired from finance to write, speak, and share his insights with others who are faced with debilitating challenges and horrific circumstances. And the miracles did not stop there.

Captain of My Soul: Mastering a Destiny Altered will inspire all those who have had to shoulder a difficult burden, suffered loss, or faced the greatest challenge of their lives. David’s incredible journey is a testament to the power of the human mind and one man’s determination to never give up, give in, or allow his physical limitations to curtail his true potential or vision.
