Dr. Robert Gilbert

SUCCESS HOTLINE, Professor of Sports Psychology

Montclair State University

As a college professor for over 30 years, I've had hundreds of guest speakers in my classes: famous athletes, winning coaches, world-class experts, even the governor of the state!  Only one of these speakers has ever received a standing ovation from my students: Dr. Paul Stuart Wichansky.   College students are appreciative; they are just a little reluctant to show it! Not so with Dr. Wichansky.  He stole their hearts.   For some, he changed their lives. How do I know? My students have told me, sometimes years later.

Dr. Wichansky has spoken in several of my classes and, every single time, it was an amazing event. He is a remarkable speaker and even a more remarkable person.

Dr. Paul Wichansky is the real deal!  His delivery and spunk through motivational speaking is unmatched. They way he uses his emotions, expressive mannerisms, and tone of voice puts you IN his life stories as he tells them to you.  When he speaks, you feel like you are going back in time with him reliving the moments he speaks of.

I walked away from his presentation in awe for how much one person can impact another through just words and life events.  I feel grateful to have been able to listen to his stories. Dr. Paul truly embodies the unique qualities of a motivational speaker. 

As he said to us, "No one can be you, better than you."  Without a doubt, he will move you and inspire you when he speaks!  Dr. Paul, thank you for making my life just a little bit better with your words of inspiration!

Paul made me realize how disabilities do not hold opportunities back, but it just takes a different route to achieve the same outcome.  People with disabilities are motivated and happy, goal-oriented at everything in life, while the rest of us are usually content to reach a certain level and then stop achieving for more.
