Believe It and Behave It:
This was, by far, the most difficult – and most important – piece I have ever written: my book.
On February 12, 2009 I suffered a traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI.
There was concern that I would not survive. I did, obviously, and what followed were several years of messes, miracles, and meaning.
Once I was “better,” I realized that everything I had learned, and was still learning, could be useful to others.
Brené Brown said (at an event in February 2018), “Trauma is trauma.”
I knew that I was not the only one who faced crises, setbacks, and traumas and didn’t know what to do.
I could appreciate the hurt, confusion, and regret felt by people who lost their jobs, declared bankruptcy, and left abusive relationships (among other things).
I knew how frustrating, confusing, and devastating it felt when friends and colleagues “moved on.”
I was someone who once lived in a rabbit hole of self-doubt, assumption, and fear.
And I had learned how to face, battle, and conquer them. So I wrote about my experiences, framing them with candor and clarity, holding nothing back.
To recover from trauma, we need a blueprint. This blueprint helps you formulate, activate, and live your comebacks.
That is why I wrote Believe It and Behave It: How to Restart, Reset, and Reframe Your Life. I wrote it for me, for you, and for everyone.
