Second Chance to Live

Sharing Hope in the Face of Adversity — One Piece at a Time

Offering a Resource of Hope and Encouragement to Brain Injury Survivors and Families

Posted by Second Chance to Live on October 25, 2014

My name is Craig Phillips and I would like to be of service to you. Living with a brain injury can erode hope. My interest is to encourage, empower, motivate and share hope. I would like to offer Second Chance to Live, through the articles I write and the video presentations I create, as a resource. What I am offering is without any cost to you or to the individuals whom you serve. Living with a brain  injury  or with someone who has been impacted by a brain injury can be daunting. The resource that I am offering through articles that I write and the video presentations that I create for Second Chance to Live. I believe in the power of identification and every thing that I share is from my own experience strength and hope. I believe you will  be able to identify with me.

I sustained a traumatic brain  injury when I was 10 years old in 1967. What I  have learned during the past 47 years has helped me to navigate life, living with an  invisible disability. To read more about my process and journey, you may visit my About Page by clicking on this link: About page. In my recovery process I discovered that I needed to and continue to need to recover in my mind, body and spirit. In my articles and video presentations I speak to topics that have helped me to recover in my mind, body and spirit. To date, I have written 1294 articles and 242 video presentations to share what has benefited me. To aide in accessing the information, I have created archives. Here is a link to my archived categories: Archives 

During the past 17 years I have used principles of neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways and brain reorganization. Several months ago I wrote an article to share the benefits that I have gained through using the principles of neuroplasticity. Here is a link to that article: Neuroplasticity, Small Successes and Learning / Relearning Skill Sets On August 22, 2014 I gave a demonstration to a group of interested parties on how neuroplasticity has empowered my life beyond my training in different disciplines. To watch the demonstration of the 1 minute and 50 second presentation, please click on this link: Benefits of Neuroplasticity — My Journey and Development using Martial Art Styles

As you read my articles and watch my video presentations and questions come to mind, please send those questions to me. All questions are good questions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a great day.
