It was 2005 and I desperately wanted my life back. Due to surgical complications I was comprehensively demolished, seemingly broken beyond repair or redemption.
I have first-hand experience of health setbacks – a series of operations for a Brain tumour left me comatose, Brain damaged and unable to walk. Along the way I was nearly blinded, died once and lost most of my hearing.
There were 15 operations in all and I was left in a wheelchair seemingly now permanently disabled; missing key nerves from the Brain. I was left unable to walk, with slowed dyslexic speech. I had minor brain damage with cognitive capacity reduced by 30 years. My face collapsed one side and I could no longer hear at all on one side. I freely admit I was pushed to the brink of extinction by the injuries and at times doubted my own sanity.
I set out on a journey of recovery – it took two years to walk and another five to run. There were many disabilities to overcome, physical, mental and emotional. Key to the recovery process was a combined `Mind and Body` approach which creates a situation where there is always an ongoing recovery activity. The concept is: “That the mind helps the body and the body helps the mind” – effectively every cell in the body is actively engaged in the recovery process. This creates a natural irresistible force for repair and personal growth. I can now walk ten miles or run two lift weights or play golf; I now run my own company as an international speaker, a trainer and a writer. I am well – my speed of speech is up by a third and the dyslexia now repaired
