Because You Shouldn't Be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams
Never one to back down in the face of adversity, the name Attila Domos is synonymous with the word "winner." In the fall of 1993, Domos suffered a falling accident that left him paralyzed at the waist on the same night he and his former rock n' roll band Big Bad Wolf signed a recording contract, but he has never allowed his injury to slow him down. An accomplished musician, athlete, writer and entrepreneur, Domos seems to have his hand in a little bit of everything these days.
Go ahead and try to tell him he can't succeed. That just fuels his competitive fire even more and he will prove you wrong every time. Domos' steely determination and courage allow him to constantly push himself and his body to the limit in everything he attempts. He has completed numerous self-challenges in an effort to raise money for spinal cord research, including his infamous "Attila vs. the Mountain" hill climb in Pittsburgh. Most recently, he won the 2010 Pittsburgh Marathon's handcycling division by more than 11 minutes.
Domos' autobiography entitled, "Because You Shouldn't be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams" touches on his life before, during and after his paralyzing accident. Some events include his childhood as a Hungarian, living in Romania under the ruthless dictator Nicolai Ceausescu, and later his life in a refugee camp. He takes the readers behind the walls of the Vienna Boys Choir, as he became a member of the world famous choir at the age of 10. Readers also get an honest opinion of America through the eyes of a 12 year old immigrant and the struggles that come along with getting accepted by the locals. Attila openly talks about his previous sex/drugs/rock 'n roll lifestyle, life from a wheelchair, his marriage and much, much more. "Because You Shouldn't be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams" chronicles the extraordinary circumstances and events which shaped Attila into the inspiring man he is today and takes the reader on one man's improbable journey toward self discovery.
