In life, some succeed while many fail; simply because when the going gets tough, the tough gets going and the losers quit. This is what drives author Dr. Robert Lee to share his newly released book, Standing on the Edge of Your Tomorrow. He wants to inspire and push everyone to do his or her best, move forward, and perform at the top of their game. He knows and believes this can be done because everyone has a choice. The wisdom to make these choices positive ones is in this book.
This motivational book does not promise step-by-step instructions to achieve instant success or become instantly wise and educated. Instead it provides “winning strategies” for achieving true success in the game of life. The author presents what he has gleaned from the wisdom of the East and the West over the years, organized into six basic success principles or concepts, illustrated by intriguing stories of famous people from the East and the West. Through these stories, readers can apply the principles to their own lives, develop their own philosophies and core beliefs, improve their inner strength, maintain the good physical health needed in winning the game of life, and enjoy a better and brighter tomorrow.
With compelling, true stories from the East and the West, thoughtful quotes from great individuals, and honest portrayals of life and living through fables, this applied wisdom is a perfect companion for anyone trekking through the mountain of life.
