Thirty Tips To Get Out Of the Pits

Thirty Tips to Get Out of the Pits

The Old Made New

This is a revised version of my original “old” book titled, “Read My Lips Tips for Success.” Much of the original material is there, edited for better clarity, plus a few newbies. Having lived through the cancer experience, I felt it necessary to include what I learned from that journey. Afterall, having cancer is a real deep pit. Not fun. Not fun at all. However, having lived through it and coming out the other side?  Peachy. Real peachy. Seriously.

The many principles in this book have helped me survive several crises periods of my life, including the breast cancer experience in 2015. The tips also improve living life on a moment-by-moment daily basis. I know from the feedback I received from those who read my original book and how much they have helped me in my own life, these tips can help you, too. 

Consistent practicing of just a couple of the tips suggested in this book can help you face and climb out of whatever pit you find yourself in no matter how deep, shallow or how long you’ve been there. 

Here is the book’s table of contents. The blue headings represent the introduction to the subsequent tips titles listed underneath.

The Journals 

There is two editions of a “Pit to Peach” journal that complement this book. One is a 90-day color journal, and the other a 365 days black and white journal. Also available on Amazon. These were created because in the Pits book I discuss the value of noting daily things for which we feel gratitude and appreciation; victories (those things did even though we didn’t want too); and the fast track to visualization – space for “Would It Be Nice If?” entries.   In both versions, there are no dates. This way you don’t feel guilty about missing a day or two, or you can devote more than one page to those exceptional days.

This Gratitude, Appreciation, and Victories Journal is designed to give you, the reader, an attractive yet succinct place to make entries that, if done consistently, will change your life.
