You have heard me mention quite often in my writings, the importance of using empowering books to help you on your journey of self-improvement.
Today I want to share with you information on a great book I just finished reading-.
The book is --
This Wasn't Supposed To Happen To Me --by Dr. Beverly Smallwood
It is a book about ordinary people with one thing in common -- they all had to deal with a traumatic event which turned their lives upside down.
Has life dealt you something you were not expecting?
Life dealt them a severe blow which they never imagined would happen to them, and as a result, it left them questioning their beliefs, their values and many of the assumptions they had.
This empowering book is a great source of inspiration and practical advice which you can easily apply to just about every setback or problem you will experience.
Don't forget that life has a funny way of throwing stumbling blocks in your way -- just when you think you have everything under control.
Dr. Bev Smallwood shows how you can overcome tragedy and loss by making ten powerful choices in your recovery process.
As she says: "This book is the result of my lifelong personal and professional search for real answers about how to deal what I call the 'unexpected unthinkable'.
It is my deepest desire that the principles, strategies, and stories I share in these pages will strengthen, encourage, and equip you to rise above what has happened to you and help you rebuild a meaningful life."
One of the main reasons I think this empowering book is an important tool to have in your collection, is because it helps you to prepare yourself, and shows you the steps you need to take to deal with adversity -- whether at work or at home.
But more importantly, if you are presently in middle of an unexpected and unthinkable traumatic event, this empowering book takes you by the hand and helps you to understand how to move forward.
