I wrote this book for anyone who has fallen from grace that you can rise again. I know everyone has a story no matter how big or small your story is, it’s your story. No matter what type of hand you have been dealt in life, you have to play your hand. I knew my hand was a bad hand it went something like this I had a 2 of hearts 9 of spade 6 of diamond and a 4 of diamond and king of clubs and I was told to sit at the table of life and play that hand and win. Anyone that knows about poker knows I was dealt an abominable hand, but I knew I still had 47 more cards to play. I did not like my hand, I knew I was dealt an abominable life hand but something deep in my soul told me to throw that hand back in the deck and get another hand and make it work. I knew it was going to be hard but I was going to make it work. I stood up and brushed myself off and tried again even harder. It’s not how you start the race; it’s about how you go through the race and finish the race.
