The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious

Today we are pleased to be a part of the Virtual Book Tour for Dr. Tiffany Brown and her new book:

"The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious"

We have also been authorized to giveaway an autographed copy of the book and a smart phone app. Not in your comments whether you want to entered for one, both or neither. Thanks!  ;-)

Dr. Brown answered a few questions for us about her book:
1)     If people could take away one thing from your book, what would you want it to be?

Never give up on your goals in life but allow God to revise or tweak them into being aligned with his Will.  Every failure is not a nightmare and every opportunity is not a blessing.  Some failures can be blessings; some opportunities can be nightmares.
Allow God completely into your heart and watch your life begin to expand in the most amazing ways.  I trust God in completely different way than before because I now have a testimony that I never had before. There is nothing like spectacular fall to truly give you a new relationship with God.

2) I love how you have included your life stories onto the pages and you are so relatable; what has been one of your biggest challenges in life and how did you overcome it?

My biggest challenge was bouncing back from my failed mayoral bid that was a disappointment on a professional and emotional level.  It was completely humiliating because I was marginalized and misunderstood throughout the campaign.   I felt like people didn’t get me; they just stereotyped me.
There were many people that I had supported in the past that didn’t return the favor added to the humiliation.  I was very disappointed in people that I had respected and loved in every facet of my life. It definitely changed the way I see the world.  
I was able to overcome it all through forgiveness.  God forgives us for all our transgressions and I was forced to do the same.  All the inspirational stories I wrote are from perspective of a reader; I wrote what I needed to hear at those desperate, heart wrenching times in my life.  I wrote to encourage myself and now decided to share it with others.

3)  What have you learned about yourself throughout the process of writing your book?
I learned not to take things so personally. Most decisions are based on individual personal ambition.  Ambition is never right or wrong; it is the inner drive to have something more in your life.  But sometimes your ambition can clash with others.  You must not take it personally.
I also learned that having just me is enough because of God’s love.  I now feel comfortable in my own skin; imperfections in all. I may not be perfect but I am attempting to be a best that I can. And that is enough as long as I try to stay aligned with God. 

 

“The Reflections of Light for Daily Living: A Book of Affirmations for the Ambitious” will be released on October 23, 2010. (ISBN number 978-1-4512-3143-4 Publish America) http://www.publishamerica.net/product119240.html  The E-Book will be offered for the low price for $9.95.  The books are also available through Ingram book distributor.
