Self-help expert Dave Pelzer teaches readers how to let go of the past, and use negative experiences to make them stronger when tackling the future. "Learning from our prior experiences, we can, and should, aspire to fulfill our dreams, making life better not only for ourselves but for others around us during the course of our life's journey," Dave writes in the introduction. "I am of the belief that you do not have to be a mayor of a major metropolis or CEO of a Fortune 500 company in order to take a stand for your convictions, to lead, rally, or educate others for your cause; or to maintain a vision that will pave the way for other generations to come. The everyday, hardworking folks, God bless 'em, have and always will continue to, day in and day out, truly make an impact on their families, communities, jobs, America, and the world as a whole."This is the philosophy that Dave will teach readers how to embrace. From letting go of past hurts, to how to turn the experience gained from adversity into the power to live a better life and help others do the same, Dave Pelzer walks readers through the process with his trademark wisdom, support, and tough love.
