The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews

“Our thinking creates a pathway to success or failure,” says Andrews. (p. 26) Our past choices lead to the present situation. You can’t say, “It’s not my fault.” Each one of use must take responsibility for where we are before we can go on. Our future is in our hands.
Andrews illustrates these truths through the story of David. He has lost his job. The credit cards are maxed out and he’s taken a second mortgage on the house. In the midst of all his discouragement, David has an automobile accident. While in a coma he takes an incredible journey.
He travels into the past and meets people like Solomon, Lincoln, and Truman. Through these people, David learns the secrets of a fulfilling life. Truman reminds David that “the buck stops here.” Solomon advises to “seek wisdom.” You’ll have to read the book to find the other principles that make up the “seven decisions that determine personal success.”
If you are tired of the traditional self help books, try this one. It is different. Written like a novel, it includes principles that will set you on a road to a fulfilling life.
