    One man shares how positive thinking helped him overcome tragedy and shows how you can apply what he learned in your own life.  When you go through a traumatic experience, especially one that causes you to lose most physical functions, sometimes it seems like you have lost everything. If you’re unable to do simple tasks like walk, run, or even get out of bed, it becomes easy to lose focus on what you can do. These are struggles that Glenn Stucki, author and co-founder of the non-profit Change4Love, thought he would never get past after he endured a horrible jet-skiing accident. However, once he learned about the power of positive thinking and a positive attitude, every obstacle became conquerable. My Smile Is My Superpower will show you how to implement these positive changes in your own life. In this book, Glenn recounts how The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People helped him to overcome the challenges of recovering from a traumatic brain injury and how these timeless, universal principles enable greatness in all people, regardless of abilities. Glenn divides the seven habits into the following three categories: The Private Victory—conquering your personal battlesThe Public Victory—developing your relationships with othersRenewal—taking care of yourself and maintaining balance and stabilityMy Smile Is My Superpower will inspire you to set goals and to not let life slip away. Glenn will not only show you how to keep a smile on your face, but you will want to spread that smile and make other people grin ear to ear.
