Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? Or why good people seem to endure such a rain of tremendous hardships? The truth of the matter is, we are not exempt from experiencing challenging seasons in our lives. No one will go through their life with everything coming up roses. There are times in life where everything is really just excellent, life is prosperous, and everything you touch turns to gold! The premise of this book is that you can shine even in the midst of tremendous obstacles! That when you speak “your” truth to opposing forces, your light will brightly shine. You have the power to create the life of your dreams by managing your thoughts, actions, and deeds. You can live the good life if you are willing to put in the time and discipline needed to do so. However, no one is exempt from challenges and setbacks.
The greatest achievers say that in a lifetime of setbacks and comebacks, the truest sense of accomplishment is not found in the realization of the goal, but rather in the will to continue when failure breeds doubt.1 Here are some examples of people who bounced back after a setback in their lives. One thing they all had in common: they never gave up!
Napoleon Hill was an American author in the area of the new thought movement. He was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal success literature. He is widely considered to be one of the great writers on the subject of success. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich (1937), is one of the best-selling books of all time. During his early life, Napoleon endured great disappointment, failure and setback after setback. He overcame being broke, divorced, destitute and fleeing for his life before he became successful.
