Description

We must all start somewhere. In this collection of real-life stories, 25 people take readers on an inspiring journey through the struggles they have overcome in pursuit of success. From small personal triumphs, to large career goals or lifetime achievements, each success, big or small, offers an inspirational insight into the inner workings of lives from around the globe, highlighting one of humankind’s greatest traits — resilience.

Discover the successes of everyday people, from life in a rural African village, to surviving the droughts and rains of Western Australia, from discovering a new world in post-World War II Canada, to following a young girl learning to navigate and overcome the perils of schoolyard bullying. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, "The World only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want," — a reminder to us all to live, celebrate and not despair for too long.

In Struggle and Success, you will discover no dream and no situation is stillborn. These stories show how we can all turn personal struggles into our own successes using the wisdom we acquire along the way. Interwoven with inspiring quotes from notable figures as diverse as Walt Disney, Oscar Wilde, Demi Lovato and Martin Luther King Jr, the result is a collection of true stories dedicated to the unrelenting spirit of the human race.

The author

Renée Hollis is an author, photographer and organizer of collaborative projects for creative artists. Prior to running the Timeless Wisdom International Writing Challenge, she created two national photographic competitions in New Zealand, as well as an international photographic competition celebrating African children — she was amazed at the response, receiving entries from photographers working for high-profile organizations such as National Geographic and Getty Images. The winning entries from these competitions were published in the books Aroha: Love (2008), Calle Me Kiwi (2013) and Celebrate African Children (2013). In 2016, Renée completed her Diploma in Writing for Creative Industries, reigniting her love of writing. Her goal with the ‘Timeless Wisdom’ series is to create a fantastic opportunity for both new and practised writers to share a powerful message with thousands of readers and contribute to be a highly collectible, beautifully produced series.
