Ditch the Dead Weight

How my toughest choice became my greatest mission

Mike Rolls

Often in personal or professional development the sole focus is how to get more of something. Mike turns this idea on its head and asks, what could we potentially get rid of to make our lives lighter, freer and more meaningful? Practical, plain-speaking, humorous and inspiring, Mike is an incredibly engaging narrator and a great role model for people of all ages.

Mike Rolls was a sports-mad teenager when he contracted a deadly disease on a football trip. Overnight he was fighting for his life. When Mike regained consciousness, he had lost his right leg, half his left foot, two fingers and part of his nose, and had extensive internal injuries. His parents were told he had a five per cent chance of survival.

After a painfully slow recovery and eight years of living with a leg that would never heal, Mike made the extraordinarily difficult decision to have his remaining leg amputated. More than just a triumph-over-adversity story, Mike's Ditch the Dead Weight combines personal experience with proven scientific research and a practical methodology for letting go of anything that no longer serves you.An inspirational speaker and ambassador for Interplast Australia and Limbs 4 Life, Mike works as a mentor and counsellor to young people after illness or injury. He also represents Australia as a golfer.
