This new self-help book helps us realize that we’re all unique and in order to be successful, we must learn to lead a happy, and fulfilled life by building on the talents and gifts we were given.
Everyone started life like a buzzing bee, hitting the window repeatedly, trying to get to the beauty and richness outside. But we cannot understand why we can’t get there while working so hard. Others think that God must have a sense of humor. He built a maze for our lives and kept us stuck at the dead end. Still others think that they are on a hamster wheel or treadmill. They work very hard but do not seem to get anywhere.
The objective of this book is to show you how you can choose to be a victor instead of being a victim and learn to master your life, reach your maximum potential, and achieve personal success sooner by working smarter, not harder.
I will share with you what I’ve learned through the years as a space scientist, a professor, an entrepreneur, and a businessman. I will point out the potential pitfalls and help you find the right direction on your adventure through life.
We have but one life to live. How we live our lives not only matters to us, but also to our families, friends, and our future generations.
In life, some succeed while others fail. Why? Because when the going gets tough—and it will—the tough get going, and the losers quit. The losers always have good excuses, but excuses never lead to success.
Many people blame their pasts. We’re all products of the past, but we can choose not to be victims of the past.
Yes, we have a choice! We can take responsibility for our lives or blame others for our failures. We need wisdom and guidance to make our choices positive choices.
“You never fail until you stop trying.”
“Make a contribution to the human race; leave a sweet fragrance for a hundred generations.”
“The doors of wisdom are never shut.”
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
—Lao-Tze, Chinese philosopher and reformer (500 BC)
