Success comes in numerous forms but many consider success, large or small, which results from struggle the sweetest of them all. The latest book in ‘The Timeless Wisdom’ series is ‘Struggles & Success’ a collection of human-interest stories, all of which relate the struggle the authors have experienced in order to achieve success.
The editor’s mission to reflect diversity of writing has certainly been achieved. Authors have come from Africa, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, from middle class and underprivileged backgrounds, but the thing they have in common is that they have reached the ‘Age of Wisdom’ – 60 plus years. The accounts are of those who have overcome drought, bullying, gambling addiction, lack of opportunity, childhood illness and ‘glass ceilings’ and many other obstacles which require determination and persistence to conquer.
Each of the twenty-five inspirational stories in this collection, is prefaced by a thought provoking quote; many from well-known achievers. The reader is encouraged to explore the link between the quote and the account which follows; some are more obvious than others. This collection is a tribute to those who face the hurdles, which life puts in their path, with a willpower to succeed.
The reader will not only enjoy this anthology but will also be given an insight into human endeavor and resilience.
