Rock bottom is a very frightening place to find one’s self. As a common consequence of losing someone close, the end of a relationship, or a failed career, this solitary and despairing state poses a threat to anyone facing a life-changing crisis. While modern book shelves are lined with an overwhelming number of self-help books, very few have been written by people who have hit rock bottom, and even fewer will be a of any practical use during a life crisis. Resplendent with effective advice and knowledge obtained through the author’s first-hand experience with hitting rock bottom, 7 People Saved My Life: How to Make it Back from Rock Bottom is an exceptional tool for anyone struggling to cope with the unexpected, yet inevitable challenges of life. As opposed to contemporaneous books in the same genre, which often provide monotonous meditations, affirmations, and tips for positive thinking, this modern-day survival guide addresses extremely personal subjects, such as bankruptcy, broken relationships, and severe depression. Through an honest and reflective account of his emotional journey from rock bottom up until present-day, Paul Browning’s unique guidebook functions as both an inspiring success story and a knowledgeable self-help manual for anyone going through a difficult time.
After a successful twelve year career with the police force, Paul Browning decides to embark on a new career in the world of Information Technology. Despite the fact that Browning is already crippled by debt, everything starts off well…or so he thinks. After months of exhausting work to obtain more qualifications and expertise, he is made redundant. In an effort to take control of his own destiny, Browning decides to try and build his own IT training business, but once again his ventures are unsuccessful. Drowning in financial debt, Browning spends his last hundred pounds to attend a three day marketing course. By applying the sales and marketing strategies he learned at the conference, as well as the expert advice delineated in a book by marketing guru, Jay Abraham, Browning is finally able to win a contract with a leading UK company. However, it quickly becomes clear that he has been pulled into support a large project which is about to collapse and the IT manager was merely looking for scapegoats. With the company refusing to pay him the ₤40K they owed in consultancy fees, Browning is forced to fight the corporate giant in court. Although his fortunes take a turn for the better when he finds a team of lawyers willing to work on a no win-no fee basis, the overwhelming stress and fear of bankruptcy surrounding the impending court case bring him to a depleted state of depression. And as if this were not enough, Browning soon discovers that his wife does not love him anymore. Unable to cope, Browning hits an all-time low and desperately seeks the council of close friends and professionals. Nevertheless, as the weeks go on, he slowly starts to climb back out of rock bottom and soon realizes that his own happiness should not fall second to the happiness of others.
By reiterating the lessons he has learned over the past decade, Browning affords readers with the invaluable truth that when life seems to be falling apart at the seams, it is often actually falling into place. Furthermore, he hopes to show how other people can come to your aid with their words of encouragement and wisdom, and how you can bounce back from what seemed at the time to be the end of your world. 7 People Saved My Life is the story of Browning’s challenging life and how he has fought tooth and nail to make his way back from rock bottom. Compassion, constructive, and candid to the core, 7 People Saved My Life is a testimony to this man’s optimistic outlook and reminds us all that ultimately, life is what you make.
