“Best book of the year!” Said a man who subscribes to... The New York Times You need to give yourself more credit! Remember that great idea you gave up on? The idea people called, crazy? Bad news for you, I took it and made a fortune! Well, actually, I made your fortune. I just get to keep the money! Because that’s what I do, I talk you out of your best ideas and then I cash them in. So here’s a tip: Stop listening to negative advice, and start believing in your own thinking for change. Who am I to give you advice? I’m that pesky “spirit of doubt” and I’ve cost you a fortune. It’s not exactly the gig I was hoping for back when I walked in your same shoes, and trust me, you don’t want it either! So start believing that your thoughts have value and that your dreams, matter. It’s time to knock the dust off your ambition and then get ready, because your life is about to go for a ride. One final note: The contents of this book will stick in your mind like super-glue to your fingers, so remember, you’ve been warned! Fact or fiction? You can decide for yourself. But keep an aspirin handy just in case. www.robertbakkeministries.com

This writing describes a life journey: it is a quest for meaning behind the motives and actions of others. It is told through the eyes and voice of Katherine; she seeks understanding of people close to her. Misunderstandings produce anger, hatred, apathy, and a lack of compassion. She relies on addictive behaviours to change the way she feels. Katherine wishes to rid herself of this negativity which creates bondage and which has the potential to destroy her, injure others, or even drive her to commit a murder. After many years, she gains insight into her fellow, human beings. She understands. She sees more clearly but not without the aid of others. She discovered she couldn’t accomplish serenity and acceptance on her own. Kate’s story introduces the reader to the persons on her team that guided her to a stage in her life where she is able to find contentment, peace, and love. LOVE becomes her state of being. She learns to accept and love herself as well as her fellows.
