Life sometimes never goes as planned, and there is no precise manual or ordered steps that a person can apply to their life to achieve success. Human beings have some things in common more often than not, which include some of life’s common occurrences such as joy, success, grief, and tribulations, amongst others. Larry Stansbury has had a fair share of all these things, and the most noteworthy part of his life is where he faced rejection, heartbreaks, fears, and tribulations, and overcame them all. He documented his experience and has now put out a book titled “Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time,” addressing those topics and letting his reader into his world from his point of view.
Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time is an account of the different phases in Larry Stansbury’s life, which covers love, heartbreak, aspirations, failed dreams, fear, rejections, and feelings of inadequacy. It tells a story of courage and how all of these were overcome to discover the self-confidence that altered the course of his life positively. Being an established author, Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time delivers a different approach from Larry’s typical narrative non-fiction books. “It highlights a range of personal and societal life scenarios with a subtle therapeutic undertone derived from my exclusive afflictions which are presented for readers to resonate with,” he explains.
A book targeted towards college graduates and adults navigating different life phases, Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time is a compilation of personal stories to help people conquer their trials and tribulations. Larry Stansbury has lived a life worthy of emulation, and he wants to show his teeming audience that he did not become who he is in one day. He’s known for his leadership, charismatic, entertaining, and inspiring qualities, but deep within, he knows all of those are products of many years of challenges. Writing this book is his way of helping people discover their identities and learn how to overcome negative and challenging situations.
Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time is a blend of different experiences and topics ranging from navigating through life as a black transfer college student, managing an autistic sibling, mental health issues, workplace stereotypes for a black man in America, sexual assault, hardship in parenthood, navigating family relationships and going through life post-college and tips for career networking. It is a real-life guide written from the lens of a man who has seen it all. Larry Stansbury overcame adversity and is showing other people how to do the same.
The motivation to write the book was borne out of the desire to write a book that readers can relate to and be a part of. With the real-life stories narrated in the book, readers see a bit of them and can relate the situations and lessons to their personal experiences. Available on Amazon, Larry has projections that the book will be a guide that many people will refer to after they have overcome the trials and tribulations in their lives. “I imagine a time that readers will be glad they read this book and thank their younger selves for taking the initiative to read it,” Larry says. Larry Stansbury has personal goals, which include working for a TV Network, Magazine, or a brand someday. Maybe the success of Conquering Adversity One Step at a Time can get him on that track faster. That’s up to the readers.
