At times, life can (and often does) put us in positions we would rather avoid. Emotional or physical pain, confusion, loneliness, being misunderstood, or being taken for granted, are just a few of the potential life-altering experiences that may cross our path.
Just as the experience of going through turbulence during a flight may initially be quite disconcerting, and possibly lead to a conscious or unconscious fear of flying, so are we prone to react to diverse external forces which at times surround us. These impactful events can leave an indelible imprint on our lives, causing unhealthy filters to be established as far as how we see and value ourselves.
Through his new book, Stafford Edwards shares experiential anecdotes which challenge some of the established thinking around our perceptions, when dealing with life’s inherent highs and lows. You will gain a better appreciation of what it means to live a life of purpose; one which not only allows you to see beyond the immediate threat levels of distress or discomfort, but also how to count the blessings we often do not realize we have.
