Daniel Bax found his Endless Potential

I met Daniel Bax about nine years ago at the Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute of Ontario (NRIO). He was in the process of fighting his way back from a devastating motorcycle accident which almost took his life and physicians doubted that he would ever return to walking and talking immediately following the injury. Back when I met Dan he was in the process of proving everyone wrong about how far he could go in his return to his former self.

In my experience, people who have a stubborn streak coupled with a positive attitude are more likely to have a better outcome than a person with a passive, gloomy outlook. Daniel Bax is a person who will fight to get where he wants in life. Since his injury Daniel has gone on to write a book about his recovery, establish Endless Potential and the related website to serve as resource and has become a motivational speaker. He is planning a bicycle ride across Canada to increase awareness about brain injury and recovery.

I ran into Daniel at the ABI Network Conference in Toronto this past November.He was looking for sponsors for his Canadian bike ride and we spoke about his desire to communicate his message. I suggested that he write a few blogs for NeuroNotes and he accepted.

I am pleased to introduce Daniel Bax as a NeuroNotes blogger. I am sure our readers will enjoy his viewpoint and perspective on brain injury and recovery.
