Sacramento, CA – 08/05/2020: The greatest success stories are born out of the pitfalls and mistakes that seem insurmountable at the time. When people go through such life-altering events, they often come out stronger in the face of this adversity and dedicate their lives to sharing what they’ve learned. Such is the case with Ralph Sanders.
Sanders’ life may have been turbulent but he doesn’t allow the failures he faced to stand in the way of guiding others to success. Using his real-life struggles as a means to motivate and inspire the youth has become a lifelong goal for the former basketball star.
After Ralph Sanders’ NBA dreams were dashed and he experienced run-ins with the law, he found solace in his work. A dedicated motivational speaker, author of several inspiring publications, and committed to youth activism, Sanders tirelessly works to ensure others don’t make the mistakes he did.
Grounded in faith and an unwavering passion for giving back to the community, his motivational speeches inspire crowds of all ages. The California-based keynote speaker credits his deep faith in God as a guiding light that helped him power through the darkest of times. When faced with cyberbullying and online slander, along with a slew of unfortunate abusive relationships, Sanders rose up like a phoenix from amongst the ashes. Through his speeches at schools and businesses all over California, the compassionate speaker aims to share what he’s learned from his trials and tribulations.
With regard to his speaker session at a California school, a participant said, “When we first heard Ralph Sanders’ story, it seemed like something out of a book. It’s difficult to imagine someone going through all this hardship and coming out so much stronger on the other side—but that’s exactly what I witnessed when I heard his speech at school. Seeing him speak so passionately about peace and spreading love after the things he’s been through gave me hope that I can power through anything too!”
Apart from his encouraging speeches, Ralph Sanders details the journey of rising up despite life’s troubles in his publications. The inspiring books are titled “Breaking Loose,” “Halftime Hustler,” and “Held Hostage.”
