About The Book
This book was written for people who probably feel they never need it. Its main purpose is to motivate and encourage the reader, whoever and wherever they are, that it is possible to rise up, do better, and excel as a person. The trap of daily painful existence in which we blame circumstances, the environment and other people around can be overcome. Negative outcomes are not a life sentence. None of us loves to remain poor or insignificant. We all want to achieve, ascend and excel - and we can. You can!
The book argues-with compelling stories and evidence from history, science, society, business, academia and personal experience-that the essence of personal destiny is like a garden. When left alone, a garden only brings out useless weeds. But when the garden is ploughed, good seeds are sown, weeds removed, the crops cared for, the garden teems lively with crops that feed us. The author shares his personal experiences and those of scores of other people, spanning hundreds of years, to demonstrate the indomitable power of the human being to get better. Spiced with easy, witty poems and scores of true stories, the book convinces the readers of their power to excel.
The Chapters of the book progressively urge the reader to leap forward and get better, use God-given inner power, pursue excellence, avoid mediocrity, accept personal uniqueness, dedicate oneself to service, and always take heart because the world seldom cheers excellence.
