Summary

Mouth artist, motivational speaker and author of the inspirational memoir The Little Big Things, Henry Fraser explores the transformative power of acceptance in this motivational guide. 

Combining his wisdom and insight, Henry shows you that the key to keeping a positive attitude - in the face of difficult and unexpected challenges - is to accept that seemingly negative experiences, such as failures, disappointments, mistakes and misfortunes, are actually the ultimate markers of human success. Sharing the lessons he learned after a freak accident left him paralysed from the neck down, Henry shows us that setbacks are inevitable in life but defeat is optional. He will encourage you to always search for a new perspective if what you see, at first, seems only dark, limiting or frightening. He believes there is always a reason to be grateful.  

The Power of Acceptance inspires you to accept yourself and to release negative feelings towards things, situations or people that you have no control over and cannot change. Henry reveals the simple words you can say to yourself and the practical changes you can make to become someone who adapts to unpredictable events and obstacles and who accepts whatever hand they are dealt in this crazy game called life.

Terrible book

Merely a Q and A with the author, very superficial surface level answers in my opinion. The narrator is the worst I have come across too. No doubt a great guy who has overcome a lot but I didn’t take anything away from it.

Inspirational ☀️

Henry's second book in Q&A format is a pleasure to hear. His attitude and simple way of small steps to progress and his discipline makes you feel that you can at least try too. He really has true human insight. Thanks Henry!

Flairful and warm, leaves you wanting to hear more

Felt like I had found a friend after listening to this second book of Henry's. I envy those who get to hang out with Henry and listen to his daily observations. Would be good to meet one day. Want to hear how the new house turns out and look forward to the next book when the timing is right. Henry's self portrait is Henry's best work yet I think, at least to my mind, don't like to think these works demand so much in sheer effort which I didn't realise until listening to this book, when you think of some artists who produce barely a few lines! Will think of Henry's words whenever I feel sun on my face, thank you Henry and here's to Today

Ideal subject matter for Q&A

A great listen, motivational, inspirational and at times confronting. Easy to pick up and put down. Always leaving the listener wanting more, even of your failure situations and how you Accepted and Adapted. Overall excellent.
