ABOUT THE BOOK
The Breaking Point is Endorsed by Les Brown
Have you ever arrived at a place in life where you knew you were created for more, and you were hungry for more?
You knew you possessed greatness, but the life you’d been living didn’t mirror the life you desired or even deserved?
These authors, who share their stories in The Breaking Point,
wanted more in life. Yes, they were broken, afraid and flawed, but decided to believe in themselves.
They wanted to live in their full purpose and potential, and did what was required to obtain it.
With strong conviction and passion, they made the necessary turns and adjustments because they wanted more from life.
This book will inspire you to bet on yourself and push forward, despite what you face, knowing that you have what it takes to steer the course of your life in the direction you deserve.
Speaker, Author, Trainer
The Breaking Point is stories by men and women on how they came to that turning point and were able to over- come adversity and reach their own personal break- through in life.
Each story will encompass their unique struggle of how they overcame the challenges to find that you had the courage, the power, and the resolve to build your life again.
This book will serve as a potent reminder that everyone has the power to choose which direction they want for their own lives.
These twenty women and men, some first-time authors, said yes
to the transformation; yes
to the stretching; yes
to going back to those dark places that brought them pain. Because they knew what they experienced wasn’t just for them, but it was for others who will come behind them needing those words to pull them up and help them move to a place of wholeness. These authors are writing from a place of victory, a place where they are no longer the victim.
CO-AUTHOR CHAPTER: EXCERPT
DISCOVERING MY STRENGTH
My mind was all over the place; life as I knew it was about to change. Not wanting to move. Not knowing what to do next. Getting up meant moving. I did not want to talk to anyone. Talking meant explaining, answering questions.
That is not who I am. Sometimes you have to reconcile some things within yourself before you can communicate with others. Just because you are comfortable with a situation does not mean that is where you belong. It can sometimes mean you are settling.
Why should I settle? Newness brings anxiety. I wondered why I had these feelings, because I had detached long before he spoke those words. One thing for sure, I knew moving forward I had to find my strength and my worth.
Carolyn shares with us the 10 lessons she has learned since becoming an author.
1. It is cathartic
2. It stretches you
3. Writing non- fiction forces you to analyze and pull from yourself
4. Fiction is what you make it
5. Your work is your work
6. Clap for yourself
7. Everyone will not give good advice
9. Say Yes
10. Promote yourself
