If you ask victims of traumatic accidents, most will tell you the experience brought them to the lowest point. You can only see a small part of it, but you know it’s there. You just have to find it. Exploring the Iceberg is a metaphor for life and provides motivating strategies found deep within, like the iceberg, to thrive.
“When I came out of my coma at mid-life with the functions of a six-year-old, I had no self-esteem, no confidence, no worth or value,” says Paul R. Lamb. “I was lower than a snake’s belly. Using the strategies and looking deeper within myself over time, my self-esteem began to emerge.”
Lamb is a motivational author who shares his experiences in his new book, Exploring the Iceberg. It is an inspiring story of his transformation following his traumatic car crash that put him in a coma for several weeks, finding the strength to overcome the challenges of his incredible injury. In the course of his journey, he discovered that knowing yourself deeply is the bedrock of self-esteem.
“You live life feeling you have little value,” Lamb says. “In reality, you have great value, as everyone does. You just may not know it, yet. Fortunately, emerging your self-esteem and your personal growth can start at any age.”
Lamb rebuilt his life after losing almost everything, including his memory and his physical abilities. Exploring the Iceberg instills in readers the ability to draw strength from past trauma to persevere, achieve and fulfill unthinkable dreams at any stage of life.
