Life is no stranger to anyone who has ever taken a breath, yet it remains a mystery that very few have been able to solve.
When Kaanja finds himself at an uncomfortable crossroad in his life, he is determined to answer the call of Life. This kicks off a chain reaction for his father, mother, and sister, each of whom end up discovering a facet of Life that is meaningful for them. Guided by Life itself, they unlock the mystery of life piece by piece, learning to deal with everyday issues haunting both older and younger generations, such as unfulfilled expectations, worry, fear, lack of confidence, and nonconformity.
As the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place for Kaanja and his family, will Life finally reveal Itself?
Twenty-five women (aged 30 to 80) tell stories of how they endured or navigated a variety of struggles and emerged having grown and transformed. Their desire is to share lessons learned to provide you with inspiration, hope, and encouragement. Writers describe experiences like altering limiting mindsets to recognize the value of self-care, listening, and manifesting; escaping emotionally or physically abusive environments and emerging stronger; stripping away restrictive expectations of others and creating authentic and passionate lives; and overcoming life-threatening illness through determination and taking charge.

Their stories are important to learn from as they help us be more aware of the complexities of other people. Everybody has a story. Everybody. You will be touched by the resiliency and bravery of these writers as through their words you’ll find reasons to uplift your own life.

To whom it may concern: One morning, not too long ago, two executives of equal rank sat down to drink a cup of coffee before heading out to work. They were very similar. Both were still married, had two children, and lived in the same neighborhood. They had known each other since college and both had been working at the same company for several years. One of them was getting a head start on the day. He was organizing his priorities, getting updated on the latest events, and communicating with his team. The other watched a little tree as he appreciated his cup of fresh-brewed coffee. He would take a sip and enjoy how it would subtly wet his lips, caress his tongue, and continue flowing through his throat. But that wasn’t the biggest difference. Even though both had a day full of tasks ahead, one of them looked in a rush and had an expression of tiredness on his face. The other one looked awake, peaceful, and grateful. Have you ever asked yourself why some people seem happier than others? If stress, overwhelm, sadness, disagreement, fear, anger, anxiety… are part of life, the difference lies in our ability to go back to happiness each time we move away from it. So, how can you go back? I don’t know. Only you do. All I can tell you is that the message beyond the words of this book will help you find your compass. Without expecting anything in return, David Torres Rodríguez
Meet David Torres Rodriguez
David Torres Rodríguez is an innate poet and copywriter capable of explaining complex concepts in simple ways. His unique writing style will hold your attention hostage from the very first line. His rhymes and smooth storytelling will allow you to cruise through pages like a red-hot knife cutting into butter. Using a combination of prose, philosophy, and brutal self-honesty, he motivates us to embrace the darkest parts of our beings. Nonfiction that reads like fiction. Confusing spiritual “nonsense” laid out in beautifully simple, everyday terms. Brace yourselves. You’re about to embark on an adventure like no other. You’re about to go Back To Happiness.
Some people always seem happy. Is it because they have no problems in life? Are they just lucky? Absolutely not! HAPPINESS IS NOT LUCK, IT’S A SKILL. Literature books draw beautiful imagery of the word Happiness, but still fail to explain it somehow. Happiness is not two-hundred pages of lovely words of philosophy, nor is it living without desires. It’s a skill. Goal Happiness discusses the practical solutions in achieving your desires and creating your own happiness. Develop the habits of happiness and achieve real joy. This isn’t a step-by-step guide, or paragraphs filled with complicated philosophical terms. Instead, Goal Happiness is a guide to lead you on the path of finding your own destiny, and discovering your own ways to get there. No more overthinking, overstressing, or negative self-talk, this book will show you how to redesign your life, rewire your mind, and develop the skills for happiness. Find out what life really has to offer you!

Meet James Klopovic
JAMES KLOPOVIC lives New Wave Leadership as the best way to learn and teach it. An Air Force instructor inspired him: Upon Jim’s graduation with honors from aircraft mechanic’s technical school, his instructor told him he’d accomplished the equivalent of three college courses. If he could achieve that, what more could he do? As it turned out—a lot.
After retiring as Major Klopovic from the United States Air Force and earning a Doctor of Public Policy (DPP), James completed 45 years of experience in the public sector, providing leadership at federal, state, and local levels. For 25 of those years, he served as a senior staffer on the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission, where his responsibilities encompassed strategic planning, municipal governance, financial development, federal granting, and community and organizational development, implementation, and evaluation.
He has authored or collaborated on numerous publications regarding community policing, community development, and effective/efficient delivery of public services.
How a near-death accident and a Traumatic Brain Injury showed me how much I’d taken for Granted. COVID 19 proved we all take things and people for granted. How to develop an Attitude of Gratitude
An inspirational memoir based upon my whole life (thus far) but it’s heavily weighted on the last 9+ years since my survival of a near-death accident in Aug 2011. I chronicle my early life, my 25 year marriage, my 30 years on Wall Street and my career as an avid age-grouper, all-distance triathlete. I competed and completed all-distances of triathlon including the Ironman at Lake Placid, NY in 2005.
