Navigating the Unexpected Detours on the Road of Life

by Shelley Streit

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Beyond the Rear View Mirror is the inspiring story of how Shelley Streit defied the odds against her achieving success in life after a childhood spent in the child welfare system following experiences of abandonment, rejection and abuse as a child. While Shelley could easily have slipped into a less-than-desirable lifestyle, she chose to forge ahead at every challenge or setback, each time taking one step closer to a richer and more successful life. This book will take you along for the ride, as Shelley revisits some of the many detours she has travelled on her road of life during the past three decades—starting from the tender age of three up to the present day. You will learn that many of the detours she had to take were not of her choice or making but that she was a driven and determined individual who refused to be held back. Her story is both illustrative of the basic human instinct for survival and self-preservation as well as a clear indication of how the resilience which is ultimately required to achieve success in life involves equal parts emotional intelligence, mental toughness, and unfailing courage that reframes every setback and failure as just another, surmountable detour on the incredible road of life.
