Untether: The Life-Changing Message to Master Your Limitations

May 14, 2019

Let go of your limiting beliefs and reach for your greatest dream.

That’s what JT Mestdagh wants you to feel inspired to do after reading his book Untether, the story of how a young man born with a death sentence defied the odds to become an entrepreneur and adventurer.

From the day he was born, Mestdagh was diagnosed with a life-threatening syndrome called Vater/Vacterl. He then endured 250 days in multiple hospitals before the age of three and underwent 16 major surgeries before the age of 16. It seemed that as soon as doctors discovered one condition and treated it, a new and worse one would arise.

Then, to make matters worse, Mestdagh has such severe dyslexia and short-term memory loss that instructors told him in fourth grade he would be illiterate for life. Along with years of medical treatments and nonstop home care, his parents relentlessly hunted for the right program to help Mestdagh learn to read. Nothing worked until he was in fifth grade when a God-arranged encounter with a unique system called Tattum Reading changed his life fo


Now, a graduate of High Point University in North Carolina, Mestdagh has lived a fulfilling life and has become an experienced mountaineer, extreme skier, boater, hunter, and adventurer. He has made it his life mission to encourage people to untether from natural or self-imposed limitations and live full, passionate lives, no matter what limitations they may be facing.

Mestdagh’s bestselling story is Infused with drama and humor and will pull you through the relentless suffering into light-filled breakthroughs. The inspiration from Mestdagh and his family will renew your faith to stand strong in your beliefs and never give up, no matter what limitations you may think to tether you to failure.

Mestdagh established the JT Mestdagh Foundation to bring encouragement, joy, and laughter to people with physical and learning disabilities. Proceeds of Untether’s sales support the foundation’s efforts to provide tangible assistance and to encourage people to accomplish their goals.

Through his stories of trials and tribulations, JT Mestdagh wants you to feel empowered that if an ailing toddler who practically lived in a hospital can now climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, and if a boy who couldn’t read or write can now publish his memoir, then you too have no limits to what you can accomplish.

His book releases Today May 14th.  Get it on Amazon!
