The Short of it:

In my life, I've had to go through some tumultuous times -- lessons to add to your life. Traveling from being one of the top jugglers in the world to being hit by a truck and lying in a coma for more than a monthlearning to speak and walk all over again, passing through a failed marriage, being run down by a truck for the second time and finally emerging as a successful motivational speaker. I have learned to turn adversity into opportunity. Now let me teach you how to do the same thing in your own life -- FIND SUCCESS!

  • I rose to great heights as a world-class juggler.
  • Then I fell face-down to the earth through the aforementioned accident and subsequent 37-day coma.
  • I rose again with the writing and publishing of my first book, Juggling with Finesse, and with starting my fresh salsa business.
  • Down I went when my wife of 23 years left me and divorced me.
  • I rose from the ashes again as I saw a brighter future.
  • I fell back down after getting hit by a truck -- for the second time.
  • I got up again by starting work on this book to help you.
  • I went back down when I was put in jail for a month on a false charge (which was dismissed.)
  • I ascended once more, traveling throughout the world to see and experience new things.
  • Up-down, up-down.
Join me on my roller-coaster ride as I bring your life to higher levels.

"With the right tools, you can overcome anything."

​In, Beyond Your Potential, you will be taken on a journey in which you will thoroughly examine your life, your future, your faith, and, hopefully, find answers to help you decide and then move forward to the next higher level that you are living, and then higher. 

We have all gone through experiences that can add to other people's lives; I have actually had a number of them, one of which was going through a thirty-seven day coma. My stories are highlighted in this book, no need to cover my background at this point. 

What I do want to emphasize here is how this book and the other editions of Beyond Your Potential will greatly add to and aid you in your life. In the conclusion, you will find a list of future books in this series and a description of how each can benefit you.
Enhance your brain -- Enhance your future!

The power of your brain is phenomenal. You have the power to do things well beyond whatever you could ever imagine.

Your brain is a vast, largely mysterious source of energy and power; and when used correctly, you do wonders. You can alter your life at any time. You can change your reality. We are continually learning new things about the brain and how it works.

Because we know so little about how the brain works, many people dismiss the potential of their own minds. When they do limit themselves in this way, they diminish their power and their success in life. People often don't know how to pull up these good thoughts.

In this book you will be shown how you can pull from the deep parts of your mind and take full advantage of your brain to help you go beyond your potential. You can reach the success that you yearn for.


"Kit Summers has written a highly inspirational book that will get reader to stop seeing themselves as victims and instead proactively start taking charge of their lives. He has walked the walk and by putting his action steps and folk wisdom to use, so will you."

Michel S. Broder, Ph.D., author

"Kit knows what you can do to go Beyond Your Potential by following his hard earned advice. He has created a practical program that works. He was the person that got the hits and solved the problem. He takes you through the steps that allow and motivate you to take control of your mind and attain the best you can be. Kit has learned what works and what is a waste of time. We are all fortunate to learn from him and go beyond our potential." 

Sir Ken Miller, CIPS RRP, AMS

"With every moment that passes in our life we can choose to rise above the challenges we face and be a better version of ourselves or we can choose to feel sorry for ourselves and give up on life. In Beyond Your Potential, Kit Summers will inspire you with his amazing ability to rise above far greater challenges than most people will ever face and teach you the lessons he's learned along the way."

Shari McGuire, Author

"Kit Summers is an inspiration to me. He is the best example I know of someone who has come through major tragedy not once, not twice, but three times. He kept on not only surviving but thriving as a successful man who never gave up on himself. Kit has written this inspiring book that has not only inspired me where I am, but will inspire you as well. Thank you Kit!"

The Long of It:
Kit Summers, juggler, author and motivational speaker

For over 30 years, Kit Summers has used his skills and experience to become one of America's foremost educators in the field of performing, juggling, and personal achievement. This, along with entertaining and speaking worldwide, as well as writing four books, he has found success in various ways.

Kit first took up juggling because of his love of things different and unusual. Learning to juggle in 1975, at the age of 15, Kit knew early this is what he wanted to do for his life's work. After winning first place on "The Gong Show" at the young age of 16, one of the next things Kit did was teach juggling and performing at Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College at the young age of 18.

Kit went on to perform around the world and achieved the position of "featured performer" at Bally's Park Place Casino in Atlantic City. He was doing 2 shows a night, 6 days a week, about 15 minutes a show. So, Kit was working about 30 minutes a day, doing something he loved, and he was paid very well for it! Kit was always working on new and better things in the show, from juggling tricks to comedy routines.

At this point, Kit's juggling was at a high level and he was trying to master juggling 7 clubs, a world record at the time. This would be the same as the first person to run a four minute mile, or pole-vaulting 20 feet. Kit didn't work on juggling 7 clubs for publicity or fame, but as a personal challenge to see how far he could take his juggling. He got a run of 30 throws with 7 clubs and knew that he could improve on this trick. The juggling of 7 clubs was witnessed by a number of people.

Juggling and performing were such a joy for Kit. Getting paid to do what he loved to do was more than he could ever have hoped for. Becoming a featured performer at Ballys was a starting point on his way toward stardom; who knows how far he was going to go with his performing.

While on the way to the show at Ballys one rainy night, Kit paused before leaving the shelter of the parking lot before fighting the wind and the rain to get to the casino for the performance. Atlantic City had not seen such a rainstorm in some time, shrouding street lights and stop signs in a shiny blur; it was even hard to see across the street.

Kit was crossing the busy street when, suddenly, out of the downpour from behind a sheet of rain, a truck came on the scene. Kit thought, "There is no time to get out of the way!" The collision was inevitable. Kit was thrown onto the hood of the truck, broke the windshield with his head, rolled off to the side and tore off the side mirror with his body, and then laid in a crumpled heap 30 feet away from the truck.

After 37 days asleep, Kit slowly emerged from his coma. He came back slowly, and when he awoke he had to learn to do everything once again, including eating, talking, walking, and of course, juggling. Although he knew "how" to do these tasks in his mind, the connections from his brain to his nervous system had to be re-established.

In April of 2010 Kit was riding his bike. It was a nice sunny day, and he smiled as he peddled. Things were good. Suddenly, a truck was coming toward him and got into the left hand lane. His mind reeled, thinking, "No, not again!" As the truck smashed through Kit, his clavicle, knee and three ribs were broken. Once again, he was in the hospital and rehab for months.

About eights months after Kit was hit by the truck, he was at home doing office work. The doorbell rang and he was surprised to see a local police officer at the door. The officer said, "Kit, I have to take you in to appear before the judge. Kit was placed in the back of a police car. He was told that his next door neighbor called the police and told them that Kit had threatened to shoot him with a gun. Of course, he had no gun. He spent the next month of his life in jail. You can read all about this in book three of Kit's series.

Several months later, Kit was able to get some much-needed time away and he drove across the US, and then flew to Australia for a month, and then went to New Zealand for a month. The whole way he had set up juggling/performance workshops, helping jugglers to advance.

After that he focused intensely on his book series, helping you to go beyond your potential. Kit is available to meet with you, to speak with your group and provide solutions for advancement.

For the future more books are planned along with more travel throughout the world. Kit will find more and more ways to help you reach the top.
