Acceptance is freedom and resistance is pain. When we radically accept our reality no matter how bad or good, that is when we allow ourselves to open up to new possibilities and meaning in our lives.
Joe Borges / Stroke SurvivorBOOK CHECK-IN CALL
This experience was truly life-changing and eye-opening for me. Now, I am on a journey to live life to the fullest and help other stroke and brain injury survivors like me, embrace their "New Normal."
On August 4, 2016, I suffered a major hemorrhagic stroke. Thankfully I survived and most of my major deficits healed, but I still have many cognitive issues and tremors in my right hand.
My 1:1 coaching program's goal is to guide brain injury survivors through the ups and downs of recovery and provide tools to help with coping and thriving.
"Joe has done so much for the brain injury community. Our four individualized sessions were so inspirational and he gave great advice & suggestions on how to organize things to improve life for a brain injury survivor - me. The guided meditations were great too. I still use them occasionally. Overall the Neuronerds podcast is also indispensable for every brain injury and stroke survivor too. I don’t know where Joe gets the energy to do all these things but I’m really thankful that he does. I highly recommend them for people with brain injuries who are struggling in their recovery."

Don’t believe in the limitations of our past programming from trauma and negative life experiences.
Because of my stroke, I transformed from a negative person who was anxious and stressed to a beacon of light for so many brain injury survivors. I went from saying that meditation was impossible for me to practicing meditation daily. I went from believing I could only work in a box to creating a podcast for brain injury survivors and finding a new purpose in life. Don’t believe in the limitations of our past programming from trauma and negative life experiences. Each day we have the choice to decide to show up however we want to create our reality.Start your transformation
This physical life is too short to choose to focus on negativity.
I had no idea what a stroke really was before this experience and it hit me out of nowhere. You learn so much about yourself through adversity and what I learned from my journey of recovery is that all of the things I thought were so serious and important from day to day really didn’t matter. All that matters is how we show up in each moment and choose to contribute our energy to the world.
The question “Why me?” pops up a lot for brain injury survivors…
Finding others to talk to that understood my experience really helped me get through my recovery.
I know for me, immediately after my stroke, I really didn’t understand how this could happen to me.LET'S TALK
Throughout my journey, I learned this one concept that changed my perspective...
It may not always be clear why bad things happen to good people, but it is the work we do to find meaning in our adversity that helps us heal and transition into the next steps of our life's journey.
Find Your let's Get Started
This is how I found my New Normal...
☑ Daily meditation
Meditation helps clear my mind and focus on the present moment
☑ Writing my Story
Writing my story is one of the most powerful ways to celebrate how far I've come and manifest where I'm going.
When I imagine each step of my journey going well, I get my mind and body ready to take those steps in real life.
"What a life-changing experience! With all the craziness of the past 2 years plus suffering a stroke in 2019, I was starting to feel like I was spinning my wheels, unable to really reach my goals and accomplish my dreams. Call it burnout or brain damage, either way, I felt weary and aimless. No more, after a few weeks with Joe, I feel motivated and have been equipped with specialized tools to conquer those not-so-far-away goals. The personalization Joe offered was unmatched and not once did I ever feel like this was a copy and paste program given to anyone and everyone regardless of their needs. My life has been greatly improved by my time in this program and I am so excited to see what it will do for others!"
