Devastating crucible experiences robbed him of his lifelong dream to be a Top Gun Navy fighter pilot and bankrupted the multi-million-dollar business he created years later. Then, just when John Ramstead thought he had his life back on track, a freak horseback-riding accident left him with crushed ribs, broken bones in his neck, a punctured lung, and a torturous 23 surgeries during a a 20-month stay in a traumatic brain-injury hospital. In this interview with Crucible Leadership founder and BEYOND THE CRUCIBLE host Warwick Fairfax, Ramstead shares that as physically and financially shattering as those moments were, the emotional toll was even more painful. It was only after finding hope through his reinvigorated faith that Ramstead was able to find his life’s calling: not striving to raise his profile, but working to raise the profiles of others. He now helps other leaders find their purpose through his coaching practice Eternal Leadership, hailed by Inc. as one of the top leadership voices in the country.

Miraculously. And before the beginning of time, He has been setting the stage for this moment, this movement, of Christ-centered coaches & entrepreneurs to be:

Christ-saturated – in every moment, every decision, every interaction of

every day.

Mission-driven – loving, sharing, gaining and giving not for just our own

sakes but for those precious souls, He has called us to serve.

Prayer-powered – living out the reality that the good and gracious

promises of God come to us through the humble, incomprehensible but

trustworthy vehicle of prayer.

Days to Building Your Business with

Less Stress and More Joy lays out a

simple, but incredibly effective, 31-day

prayer plan. A plan already used by
