When the memories kicked in (John-A-Geddon 2008),  I thought I should apply for my Doctorate to be changed from Theology to Stupidology. Things I would never have done once, where now my staple. Attitudes, actions and thought patterns once foreign were the only things that filled my head.

Looking back, I can see a pattern of small decisions and inconsistencies that added up to big disasters. The things that I had suffered as a child and repressed for over 40 years had induced Post Traumatic Stress in such a way that my life, health and intimate relationships would never be the same again.

When I told a therapist my story, recounting over a decade of sexual abuse at the hands of my parents and their friends, she burst out crying saying it was the worst case she had ever heard of, telling me she couldn’t cope and I was probably beyond help. I thought…WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT.

So I did what my old boxing coach taught me. I tucked my chin and threw punches. I refused to quit. I wasn’t going to die broken because of what someone  else  did  to me—forget that. I determined to turn my Post Traumatic Stress into Post Traumatic Strength.

Think Big: Why Smart People do Dumb Stuff is volume 5 in the Think Big Books series. It is a summary of the lessons I learned and the principals I had to re-teach myself. It is an honest account of the highs and lows of building a life from the bottom up, but this time with 50-odd years of knowledge and several lifetimes’ worth of experience.
