from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.".

My Life – Felipe Massa: A Career In Retrospect (Extended Interview)

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

My Life – Felipe Massa: A Career In Retrospect (Extended Interview

A “real genuine nice guy/ racer”, who handled the disappointment of Brazil 2008 with such dignity …. and a man who lives his life in a spirit of humility and graciousness (unlike so many seeking the glamour in the F1 “paddock”)

We’ll miss you, but enjoy the family even more now, Felipe!

Godspeed: The Story of Page Jones

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

“Godspeed: The Story of Page Jones” is a documentary of a racecar driver’s recovery from a severe traumatic brain injury. Chronicling 20 years, Page Jones redefines victory while advocating for access to long-term rehabilitation for others. Page is living proof that with support, quality lives are within reach.

“TBI upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual. TBI affects the roots of who we are — our ability to think, to communicate…”

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key.

We mustn’t have a victim attitude. NEVER! No matter what has happened to us, there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. Each one of us has positive attributes and we must not let our difficulties define us. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop strategies to compensate for these deficits. No matter how significant…
