Due to his own adversities he faced and overcame, Larry Powell wrote this book to show you there is victory over misfortune:

"On September 11, 2001, a plane hit a building in New York City, then another, then another, and life changed forever. A tsunami of personal downfalls affected every part of my life. During the subsequent five years that followed 9-11 my marriage ended in divorce, my business failed due to halts in work from my affected clients, I lost my home to foreclosure, all my money, business associates and many people who I thought were close friends.

A once confident, self-assured husband, father and businessman, my life was broken. I was left only with my faith in God, and all the words of the authors I'd been encouraged by over the years."

Hopefully by reading these quotes on a daily basis you'll find options to overcome your own challenges so you too can realize a happier, healthier and more prosperous life!

About the Author

Larry Powell is currently a Dallas-based marketing and advertising professional. Although he has extensive experience in journalism as an academician and business entrepreneur, Life's Little Book of Survival Quotes is his first foray into publishing his own works.

After the Twin Towers terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, all but destroyed his means to earn a living (resulting in the loss of his business, his marriage and his home, colleagues, friends and family members), he fought his internal demons and realized there was no other choice but to pull up his boot straps and keep participating in his life.

As new doors started to open, his desire to bring uplifting, inspirational messages and tools to empower people to change their lives increased exponentially. He parlayed his experience in marketing and advertising into strategizing solution-based programs for profit and not-for-profit organizations. And established grassroots platforms to help individuals struggling to rebuild their lives and businesses during these very tough times hit by financial and natural disasters.

The entrepreneurial, philanthropic and humanitarian components of Larry's nature are the basis for his need to nurture and support people to reach their fullest potential. He is a life coach, a mentor, philosopher, and an educator - all of which he learned through practical applications of the education he gained throughout his collegiate years.

Underpinning his drive to affect change are four key components: The human spirit, survival, diversity, and the "mojo" (the magic) in his passion for success.

His broad-based skills enabled him to create leadership modules used by staff at all levels, retail and promotional campaigns, city and state officials, and media clients. As well as business models for multicultural, spiritual, and educational programs, and the individuals running them. The coaching and mentoring programs Powell developed over the years are an amalgam of his career as a director of creative strategy; marketing/communications consultant; business director; founder and director of his own advertising agencies; and media mogul - all of which have been foundations for his exploration into journalism.

Powell earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in advertising from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Beautiful, Uplifting & Inspiring Life's Little Book of Survival Quotes was recommended to me recently and at first I was hesitant about purchasing it, merely for the fact that I'd never really delved into the world of inspiring quotes in anything more than a passing thought. However, I was persuaded to give it a try and I am really glad I did. This was a beautifully uplifting collection of quotes that manages to make you think, make you fell, give you strength and inspire you in equal turns. Each of the quotes has a distinctive meaning and a personal touch that takes them out of the realm of obscurity and makes them deeply personal for the reader... no matter the troubles, tribulations or heartache/pain the reader might be feeling.  Larry Powell does a wonderful job of bringing these quotes to life and choosing survival quotes that speak to the spirit and uplift up while offering strength, support and guidance as well. When I finished Life's Little Book of Survival Quotes I felt like I'd just got a breath of fresh air and a boost to my spirit; the worries over money issues, career stresses and family squabbles melted away for a while and gave me a sense of purpose and determination to see things through. Overall, this collection of quotes really do bring out the survival instinct in you to persevere and to find meaning even in life's most trying times.
