Ruben Gonzalez
A seemingly "ordinary guy," Ruben Gonzalez wasn't a gifted athlete. He didn't take up the sport of luge until he was 21. Against all odds, four years later he was competing in the Winter Olympics. At the age of 47 he was racing against 20-year-olds in the Vancouver Winter Olympics!

Gonzalez speaks from Olympic experience. He teaches the personal effectiveness system he used to achieve success again and again in both the Olympics and in business. He is proof that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things if they will follow a few simple steps.
From Dubai to Toronto, from Hanoi to Cancun, from Singapore to Africa, Gonzalez has inspired and motivated audiences around the world.
His client list reads like a who’s who of Corporate America: Dell, Coca-Cola, Farmers Insurance, Ortho McNeal, the Million Dollar Round Table, Oracle, Wells Fargo, Century21 and even the U.S. Treasury Department!

Gonzalez has shared the stage with speaking legends Zig Ziglar, Denis Waitley, and Tom Hopkins. They have hailed him as a leader of a new generation of personal development speakers.

As a four-time Olympian and internationally recognized expert on developing mental toughness, Gonzalez knows how to achieve success again and again. A master storyteller, Gonzalez uses his Olympic experiences to inspire audiences to think differently, live life with passion and have the courage to take the necessary steps toward their goals—to push beyond self-imposed limitations and to produce better results!

Gonzalez has appeared nationally on ABC, CBS and NBC. He has been featured in TIME magazine, The New York Times, as well as publications around the world.

His articles on peak-performance are read on every continent. His book, The Courage to Succeed, has been endorsed by Lou Holtz, Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Brian Tracy and Dr. Robert Schuller.
