If you are going through hell, keep going.
Life is a journey, not a destination and as such, as is required of journeys, one has to believe that they will reach their destination.
Belief is an essential part, a hope that the dream will be achieved.
Like a guiding star, one should never lose hope in life. Soon, the new dawn will be realized.
Vincent Ogutu’s new book, The Comeback is written for the ones who are going through a tough time. It is written to motivate the inner workings of the souls through stories of conquering adversity.
To conquer adversity, one needs to first acknowledge and understand the crisis they are in, believe again to make a new start even in the face of insurmountable odds, make good choices through focus, and become unrelenting in the new energy toward one goal.
Because, truthfully, when one is at the bottom, the only way becomes up.
The Comeback by Vincent Ogutu accounts the journey of various individuals mostly Kenyans, their spectacular wins from despair. Must Read. – Ekoroi Book Review.
Taming anxiety and gaining confidence, even if it is a feigned confidence; one is able to conquer new ground no matter how battered they were by life’s trials.
The naked truth is that life is a harsh place, you will get knocked down at every turn. Don’t let it keep you down.
A growth mindset is a friend at this time.
The author shares accounts of people’s lives.
Real stories of real people.
“Life cannot be left to chance despite challenges. Count on the small wins to create momentum. The journey of failure, rejection and pain equips one with lessons on the true meaning of life,” Ogutu’s overarching message lights up the night sky.
It’s not easy to pick any particular outstanding life account as shared on the book, as all are very motivating.
The book builds a crescendo as the preceding story is just as great as the previous.
Nonetheless, Fred’s resilience, and reinventing himself to international recognition, despite being born in tough conditions in Kibera slums, is commendable; Bulle’s resolve to pick up and restart businesses is adorable; Jalang’o’s confidence, a man without papers conquering till he became a member of Parliament is praiseworthy; George Wachiuri’s account of from poverty, to determination through great savings culture and pulling himself from a huge setback of stolen millions to one of the best real estate magnates is very beautiful, and Derrick Gathirimu’s descent into the abyss of drug abuse, his comeback is one of the best accounts.
Written in first person, Gathirimu’s account shows how resilient the human spirit is and why the mindset is the major turnaround factor in anyone’s life.
I recommend you start from chapter 14. There are many more motivating stories but read this first.
Don’t succumb to self-pity, get up again and again, and win.
Isn’t this reason enough to get the book and read for yourself?
