How do we ensure our dreams do not remain mere wishes?
We never get introduced to the topic as part of our school curricula; from primary school to even higher learning institutions.
We are not trained in our schools on the simple techniques of setting goals, pursuing our dreams, dealing with adversity and setbacks, eliminating self-defeating habits and developing positive ones, time management, being disciplined and practicing the power of choice, taking responsibility for our lives, developing self-confidence, dealing with the loss of dear ones, turning your dreams to reality, etc. These, we will learn in this book.
This book teaches you to know and define your own dream, believe in yourself, define your life goals and find your path. The model applies to you no matter where you find yourself in life right now. Success and winning are not confined to your affluence or your career. You are truly successful when those around you are successful, too. This is what we will learn in this book.
This book is different from most of the self-help and motivational books because this one will teach you exactly why and how to become what you dream of without cheating, beating the competition or using dishonest ways. Others must not fail for you to win. Nature is never poor, it has all the resources to help us become what we dream of, we only need to learn "how"?
And as my personal philosophy states, "When we put in the work, when we don't give up but with determination, hard work, persistence, consistency and patience, we will win, maybe not immediately, but definitely!!!"
Danielle Foisy has walked for eight years with a husband who struggles with mental illness, six of which were undiagnosed and untreated. There have been many ups and downs and dark seasons that have taught her invaluable lessons that she hopes can help others who are walking in the same shoes. In the darkest and hardest times while living with a husband who struggles with mental illness, she found there were not a lot of resources for the person who is supporting someone who is struggling. The goal of this book is to change that and start the conversation.
As a spouse of someone struggling, Danielle realized that there are many obstacles, emotions, and struggles that come with mental illness and this book explores what that looks like and how to endure the tough times that come with being that support system.
"A fascinating look at how we are neurologically 'programmed' to think, feel, and act like our parents. This book shows moms how to avoid passing along habits of stress and negativity, setting their children up for good health, optimal learning, and better sleep." —Anjalee Warrier Galion, MD, Children's Hospital Orange County
