Stephen Dale is an Author and Speaker with an amazing story of survival! At the age of 21, Stephen fell 30 metres down a cliff. He suffered major head and spinal injuries, critical blood loss, five heart attacks and severe liver, kidney and abdominal organ damage. During his 8 month hospital stay he lost approximately 40kg, his five senses were compromised, and the head and nerve trauma led to compounding difficulties in communication, movement and excessive pain. Upon the discharge from his fourth hospital, Stephen was confronted with the painful reality of living with injury, fear, financial insecurity and long term unemployment. To add to his dilemma, his head injury took away his capacity to read, write or speak and simply to process information. Constant failure, embarrassment and disappointment in his attempts to overcome these obstacles brought confusion, self-doubt and anxiety. Stephen committed to a self-imposed rehabilitation program that took 10 years to complete. Despite overwhelming medical, physical and social setbacks, he fully regained his cognitive and communication skills. He also rebuilt his physical strength, mobility and endurance. Stephen started Smiling Tiger in 2002, and has since taught and trained individuals and businesses throughout Australia how to overcome their professional and personal obstacles, manage their environment and achieve their goals, regardless of how powerful the obstacles may be. Listen in to his story, and how his faith strengthened him along the way!
