About The Book:
Everyone loves to read stories about overcoming obstacles for inspiration. Over, Under, Around, and Through: How Hall of Famers Surmount Obstacles contains fifty 350-450 word stories of how women inducted into halls of fame in Colorado, across the U.S. and internationally overcame significant obstacles in their lives. They used ten skills either singly or in combination to overcome murder, murder-suicide, death of a parent, bigotry, discrimination, prejudice, incest, illness, divorce of their parents, abusive environments and much more. A diverse group of women is included across many fields of endeavor so there is someone that everyone can relate to. The ten skills include mental intelligence, emotional intelligence, social support, moral compass, spirituality, determination,  perseverance, persistence, creativity, optimism, resilience, action-orientation, and passion. Everyone has these skills and can surmount obstacles in their lives whether they know it or believe it or not. People need this book. Particularly now, coming out of the pandemic. Everyone faces obstacles in their lives. Absolutely everyone. The book provides in the words of readers – inspiration. It is not only for women although all 50 stories come from women and their experiences. The stories of overcoming obstacles are universal. One of the men who read the book said “An easy read. Both uplifting and inspirational.” Inspiration and education. Wanted and needed.
