Craig Phillips

People like Craig Phillips are a unique breed. I’ve known Craig for many years in the context of the brain injury community where he has been an active participant for many years. Craig has evolved as a teacher and a guide to people who are embarking on the journey of living their lives with a brain injury. As a teacher, Craig provides life lessons by sharing his own growth and self-awareness. He encourages and supports the steps leading to action and enhanced self-knowledge. And, as an accomplished life coach and guide, Craig suggests that each person treat the steps they take in their life as part of a work in progress. Perhaps, most important is Craig’s message to live to find hope.

Recently Craig and I shared some communication via email. He told me that he has made two of his e-books available to the public: Being Your Own Hero Through Overcoming Adversity: Tools for Rebuilding Your Life and Living with a Brain Injury: Putting the Pieces in Place (60 Video Presentations from his Second Chance to Live Channel). Craig wanted to make readers of NeuroNotes aware of the increased availability of his two e-books. He has a strong desire to make information available to people living with a brain injury. I was pleased that Craig asked me to tell our readers about his books. With his customary thoughtfulness for others, Living with a Brain Injury: Putting the Pieces in Place was designed to put his articles into a video format for people who find that more accessible than reading. In Being Your Own Hero Through Overcoming Adversity Craig created short, focused life lessons addressing challenges and opportunities for growth which are of tremendous value to all people. Craig is adept at using his own journey as the teaching example and provides effective tools for increasing awareness and growth in each vignette.

Craig Phillips, like Daniel Bax , George Visger and others who have contributed to NeuroNotes , is a member of the group of people known as Brain Injury Thrivers. They have addressed and continue to address challenges in their lives and take the time in their journey to help others find opportunities. I am pleased to know them and to share their work with you through NeuroNotes.

Craig encourages people to visit his website, A Second Chance to Live and to use his e-books.
