After Chris’ second brain operation in 2016, he was left with a lot of physical deformities. It took him eight months to learn how to walk again. Not knowing how long he had to live, Chris wanted to write a book so his two young sons would know who their father was.
While writing the book, Chris returned to the operating room in October 2017 to have six large cancers removed from his remaining half kidney. After the operation, his outcome didn’t look good. The doctor hoped his kidney function would be better because Chris’ creatinine results were hovering just below the need for a dialysis machine.
This was Chris’ eighth life-threatening experience. He made a pledge with the same kidney doctor a decade earlier to employ thousands of people at a time when he wasn’t employing anyone. Chris lived up to his first pledge by hiring 8,000 people. After his second kidney operation, spiritually, Chris knew he had to bargain for his life by making yet another noble pledge, this time to inspire millions of people.
Wanting to live up to his pledges and be worthy of all his “second” chances, Chris had his book reviewed by a resilience coach, Jo-Anne Bowyer. Together with Chris, Jo uncovered the mental construct, patterns, and framework that he used to keep bouncing back from adversities, and now Chris wants to share these transformational insights with you.
We all get tested in life, Chris certainly has had his fair share, he is no stranger to overcoming adversities such as cancer battles, multiple brain operations resulting in 8 months of rehab to learn how to walk again as well as business losses. These days Chris is healthy, tumor free and running a large company and continues to build an extraordinary life.
Despite everything he has been through, Chris didn’t become bitter. He became a fighter, instead. He fought through these challenges—low self-esteem, learning issues, financial losses, and critical health adversities. He challenged himself to continue learning, growing, and becoming a better person and to maintain personal self-control.
Throughout Chris’s story you will recognized that his success came from his ability to bounce back and flourish from unexpected adversities. Each adversity provided him with a wake-up call, disrupted his habitual routines, and jolted him out of comfort zones that led him to re-evaluate what truly mattered and what was worth living for.
Resilience Program Coach
“I was fortunate to meet Chris Jankulovski, Founder & CEO of Remote Staff, at a workshop I did on Resilience for a group of CEOs and entrepreneurs in February of this year. Chris is not your typical guy. Chris’ unique story includes eight near-death experiences and a RESOLVE to positively impact the world, the likes of which I have never experienced firsthand.
In our recent collaboration, I have learned many things from Chris about business and life. The most impactful is “focus on what you can control”. As far as resilience goes, this seemingly simple statement is a powerful stance. It enables composure, tenacity – via optimism through change, and serves as a great mantra for investing in our health – especially now.
And even as the world endures a level of chaos not seen before, Chris keeps his vision front and centre and perseveres through each challenge with a success mindset. I am forever grateful to be working closely with Chris and seeing the principles of resilience embodied in someone who has learned them on the run.”
