Publisher's Summary

Diagnosed with juvenile type 1 diabetes at age 17, Jim Stavis was told to expect a shortened life span filled with medical difficulties along the way. While some would choose to spend their time asking, "Why me?" and focusing on the very real possibility that their life would end before it even began, Stavis chose to tackle his medical issues head on - using positivity and hope as warriors in his fight against adversity.

As Jim's life unfolded, he realized the adversity that had occurred early on had actually been a blessing, as it taught him how to overcome life's greatest challenges. It served as a motivator to get his life on a successful path, both personally and in business. As events would occur, such as a devastating business fire, more health challenges, and ultimately a rare triple organ transplant, it was the mind-set Jim employed that he would not only survive but flourish that got him through. He ultimately realized in his journey that we are all tested eventually. Through his real-life challenges that he overcame and the wisdom gained, he hopes to be able to help others as they encounter their own adversity in life.

This book is about overcoming all the odds. It is achievement paired with loss and accomplishment paired with adversity. It is having faith that in all things, even the most challenging and heartbreaking, you can learn and gain something important. It begins with the hope and belief that you can get through anything, even if it's your only option.
