Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. For those individuals who do not know me, my name is Craig J. Phillips. I am a survivor of a severe traumatic brain injury, resulting from an open skull fracture; in an automobile accident in 1967 when I was 10 years old. Although I was not expected to live the night of the accident, nor succeed beyond high school academically, I went on to obtain my undergraduate degree in 10 years and my graduate degree in 3 1/2 years. You see, once my external wounds healed the impact of my traumatic brain injury remained hidden for many, many years.
After many, many years of struggling, to fit academically and vocationally; I was deemed to be unemployable by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and declared disabled by the Social Security Administration. But, I did not give up. In my interest to still be of service and I created 2 websites, 2 YouTube Channels and have written 7 eBooks. My motivation for creating my websites, youtube channels and eBooks have been to encourage, motivate and empower individuals facing adversity and addressing setbacks. To encourage them to keep moving forward. To not give up on their process, a loving God or themselves. To stay committed to their course. To keep running their race. To trust the process. To trust a loving God. To trust themselves, through the process.
To trust that the adversity and setbacks that they may be facing is going to be used for their good and not for their harm. To trust that more will be revealed in time. To trust that the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together at the right time and in the right order. To trust that the dots will connect forward for them. To trust that what may not make sense now, will bring clarity.
In my desire to be of service, I have included links to my websites, You Tube channel, and eBooks below. All are offered without a fee or charge. Please share these links with anyone who may be experiencing adversity or facing setbacks in their lives. If you are working within an organization that is seeking to serve individuals who are facing adversity and setback (s), please share the below links with them. In the event that you would like to add each link to your website’s list of useful resources, you have my permission. If there is any other way that I can be of service to you, please let me know.
I look forward to being of service.
