Ralph Green | A high school quarterback and multi-sport athlete was gunned down at 16  years old while he and a friend walked along a street in Brooklyn. Green survived, but his left leg was amputated at the hip. A year later, Green was introduced to skiing in the Poconos, and it didn’t do much for him. In 2000, though, Green found himself back on the slopes with a program in Winter Park, Colo., and as he says, “That’s when it stuck...‘I’m skiing until I’m the best.’” Green is now a 10-time U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing National Team member and four-time national champion. 

But Green is more than resilient. He lives life in the new normal and is not satisfied with anyone living in mediocrity. He blazes new trails, pushes past limits of others as easily as he passes gates on the ski course. 

Today on lifes new normal you will learn how to become better when life deals you bitter.

Strap in because it is going to be a fast downhill ride.
