Our children are growing up and Hubby and I are committed to preparing them for life. An integral part of that preparation requires us to teach them about wining and failing. Yes, failure. In this society where winning is everything, it's important to teach kids the importance of failing.
Wining is great but sometimes we don't win and for some the realization of not being numero uno is major. Some never recoup from it. Hubby and I want our kids to know failure means you tried and trying IS everything. So what if you fail... at least you tried.
Everyone has a story... this is the story of Tyler Williams.
Tyler Williams has known success. He has performed in Atlanta's famed Fox Theatre, raced down Victory Lane as a NASCAR driver, worked on hit film and TV shows, and sang for thousands in packed arenas. But Tyler has also known failure, devastating setbacks, and the pain of lost love. He knows how it feels to be lost, disconnected from himself and his passion.
Tyler tells his story of losing his "voice," navigating life for many years without it, then finding it again‹and finding himself in the process. I Have a Voice is full of life lessons that people both young and old will recognize. This is a book of hope, challenges and breakthrough moments. Tyler recounts his personal journey and uses his experience to help guide readers back to their own voices without dictating the steps to get there. Those who have lost their purpose, passion and "voice" will find renewal in his words.
Growing up can be difficult especially when you found constant successes at a young age. Tyler Williams had it all but as he got older he lost himself amidst waning fame and glory. His story is like that of so many who, like Tyler, lose their fervor for life when faced with life's challenges. Tyler's story reminds us life is full of highs and lows but it's those valleys where we learn. His story is perfect for young adults who may have recently graduated high school, or college or even those just out there who are just not sure about this thing called life.
Tyler speaks candidly about his experience of life, love, career and finances. Tyler's wake-up call came after failure seemed to knock at his door time after time. Sadly, he was so used to winning when failure knocked, he opened the door and failure knocked him on his feet every single time. However, when he realized he had the power within him to meet failure face to face and win and win he did. Way to go Tyler!
Tyler's story is an uplifting tale of overcoming amidst self doubt and he shares how he found the inner strength to face doubt.
