Publisher's Summary

A short, inspirational audiobook from Henry Fraser, a young quadriplegic motivational speaker and artist.

Henry Fraser was a 17-year-old sports enthusiast and senior prefect when he broke his spinal cord and was left paralysed from the shoulders down. Life as he knew it was over, and yet, through extraordinary determination and a positive attitude, he has forged a successful career as an inspirational speaker and an artist. He chose survival over defeat and transformed unimaginable difficulty into an opportunity to grow and inspire others.

This book combines his wisdom and insight into accepting life's challenges with positivity and hope and will resonate with anyone facing an obstacle, no matter how big or small. It includes Henry's thoughts on how to look at the right things and avoid the wrong things, looking for progress in whatever you do, and acknowledging and accepting the darkness when it comes. Right at the heart of Henry's inspiring philosophy is his belief that every day is a good day.

Couldn’t stop listening

Love this story! Simply amazing! His outlook on his situation seems to never go to pity or poor me, and Lord knows no one would blame him if he did. But he wanted more for himself and his life. Excellent/inspiring example for us all. ❤️

Must read book

Heart warming book about bravery and encouragement. Teaches you how to pick up your life when you hit the lowest point. If Henry did it then there is no excuse why you can't. Accept and adapt.

Such courage.

Henry it was so frightening to hear what happened to you in Portugal the fact that it can happen to anybody in the blink of an eye .
Talking as a mother myself ,I would like to think if that happened to one of my loved ones, I could be as strong as your mum.
You have come so far in five years. The start of your story there was lots of tears and it broke my heart.
Then you turned it all around to a happy ending.
I really love the fact that you can enjoy a night out with your brothers & your mates .
Those around you want to be with you,that tells me that you are great company . a fellow with a smile on his face ,& will join in with the rugby banter .

It meant a lot to me knowing that you read your book to us yourself .
Thank you !! Xx

Absolutely fantastic

I loved it. Clever and thought provoking. Henry is inspirational in his story and delivery as well as how he has taken so many positives out of what could have been made a very negative situation.

An inspirational must-read

A very inspirational book in which Henry Fraser demonstrates the true meaning of gratitude and overcoming adversity in the most positive way. His approach to ‘accept and adapt’ has enabled him to move past such a devastating accident and is truly striking. This book will stay with me for a long time; it is awe-inspiring, uplifting and has given me a refreshed outlook of appreciating those ‘little big things’ we take for granted that little bit more. A must-read!
