I am a warrior and a survivor. By sharing my story along with my dramatic recovery from a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), I inspire others to realize they have far more power than they realize and anything is possible.
My entire life has been about –
As a kid growing up, mom continually counseled us in having a positive mindset. The world was our playground of possibilities and we could accomplish anything we wanted as long as we maintained our vision and persistence.
During the early part of my career I was trained as a Research Manager at Coors Brewery. At that time Coors was very entrepreneurial and the power of a positive mental attitude (PMA) was reinforced long before it was mainstream. Today, Navy Seals are taught these same techniques during their now famous BUDS training program.
I was also highly trained in lateral thinking (creativity), the power of commitments, and getting those that didn’t report to us (everyone) to have the same vision and level of commitment that we did to meet the goal.
These same skills and teachings were instrumental in a full and complete recovery from a severe and life-threatening Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). I was struck head-on by an SUV one day while bicycling after work. The severity of the injury was such that my wife was given the talk that if I survived, life as we knew it was over. High odds I would likely remain in a vegetative state.
From this point forward, I continually made incremental improvements. My attitude was extremely positive and I knew I would be successful in achieving a complete recovery. Again – my positivity training and the power of commitments was brought into successful action.
I now use my life-changing event as the foundation to inspire audiences that anything is possible. I anchor these lessons with deep feelings and great story telling to make them memorable.
