Focus on Discovery
November 11, 2015
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
My guest is Jeff Sebell, after suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 1975 from a car accident resulting in frontal lobe and brain stem injuries, was in comatose for 30 days. Jeff has continued to write, and speak, focusing on "living a fulfilled life after brain injury". He was credited in the book "Brain Injury Advocates", by Sue Hultgran, with the first use on the web of the term "TBI Survivor". Jeff's focus on discovery lead him to write his book "Learning How to Live with Yourself After Brain Injury", not your typical TBI survivor book. His book is full of new ideas, it is invaluable for those who have experienced a brain injury, or for others who want to better understand what their family member and/or friend(s) is going through.

The Sky’s the Limit is a motivating, inspirational program which is based on my journey from medical professional to patient, highlighting people from all walks of life and various stages of overcoming adversity, their challenges and awakening to the rediscovery of themselves, a transformation. I engage with a number of successful life coaches, authors, athletes and everyday people who discuss their journey and process as well as exploring the concepts of Eastern and Western medicine. We are all learning life’s lessons every day and living in the moment, no matter where we are in our journey.
