Don't Worry, Be Happy- the first ever episode of "The Matt Townsend Show" on BYU Radio; the "Inaugural" edition. Mike Schlappi was one beat of the heart away from death during an accidental shooting by his friend. Now a world-class athlete, Shlappi has four olympic games under his belt, four medal attempts, and four medals (two golds, two bronze). Though he could have sat and stewed, Shlappi made the decision to accept his circumstances and get to work. The following statement is representative of his philosophy, "If you resist change, you fail. If you accept change, you survive. If you make change, you succeed." He likes to say that he has earned the Gold, the Bronze, and the Lead, nodding to the bullet that was the basis of his book, "Shot happens," which tells his story and his coping process.
