Don't Gamble on Life Improvement...Until You Shift the Odds!


Don't be thrown off by the book's title! It has nothing to do with gambling, but everything to do with self-development and improvement. However, it has been disguised as a semi-memoir – real scenarios that have happened to real people. It was written to help unravel the mystery surrounding some of life's most challenging obstacles, and takes you on a personal journey through self-reflection, discovery, and eventual victory over doubt and despair.

Everyone encounters obstacles, but the truth about HOW and WHY they stifle some people more than others, may be surprising. You'll learn how simple the formula for overcoming them really is. The book is fun and engaging... but 100% REAL! Personal experience, humor, anger, vulnerability, depression, and ultimately, inspiration and triumph are included to show that adversity can be defeated when you have the right tools!
