Beyond the Stroke: A Survivor's Quest for Courage (2024) is a compelling and transformative testimony of unbreakable resilience, determination, and perseverance, not weakened by hardship but molded and sharpened within its furnace.

Dr. Curtis L. Nelson III

Dr. Curtis L. Nelson III is the owner, CEO, and Clinical Director of Bluegrass Counseling Associates LLC, and the author of two books, including Failure Matters (2020).

Dr. Curtis L. Nelson III's "Failure Matters," a memoir, is a series of movements involving a visionless youth and his family and struggles in this, "Coming of age rock bottom," period that led to enlightenment. Dr. Nelson reflected on his life story when he said, "I realized that without some real personal character change, I was going to be a failure and not live up to my potential. It was having to get into yet another fight that was symbolic of a greater point that I was not getting ahead. I was in a place of existence that was marred by fighting, both internally and externally. I was a sophomore in high school and lost.

At a minimum, this book is a testament to unconditional hope for oneself, others, and life. At its best, though, this book is a blueprint for achieving something of immeasurably great worth: self-actualization. I hope that a reader's time spent traveling these pages will move you to a place of more wisdom and inspiration.

She is also the co-founder of The Healing Tent, The Healing Tent Podcast which can be found on Apple Podcast and Spotify, and the Incredible Momentum Cohort. Dr. Jackson believes “in the power of change and the power of growth. In order to do so you must be willing to search within yourself and ask yourself, how can I become the leader that I would want to follow? If you are not willing to try something new, embrace something new, and understand the ability of new, then you are not ready for true change. I believe leadership is something that does not occur overnight, it is something that occurs daily, and should be evaluated in order to truly change any system. In order to do so, building positive relationships is essential to change!”
