Every journey begins with a step. Too often, the journey is not completed because the pilgrim does not continue to move forward. In Stepping Stones: Creating Personal Integrity, Debbie Greer Chamberlain provides five significant strategies to help the reader on their journey. By following these five steps, the reader can change their path into a life of integrity, love, responsibility, forgiveness, and accountability. You don’t have to be a victim when you learn how valuable you are and how to rise above your past. Debbie had a childhood with many disadvantages, yet she knew her past made her who she is. Following her five steps, she learned how to forgive and forged ahead to find success. Blaming setbacks on others will never lead you to succeed. Instead, take responsibility and learn how to move forward.
Many people blame their failures on their past. Like Debbie Greer Chamberlain, many had an unbearable childhood, but they must all accept responsibility for their choices. Debbie made the right choices and in Stepping Stones she shares her wisdom. First, take the time to discover who you are and what you stand for. Then, reprogram your way of thinking. Finally, focus on the five steps: acceptance and forgiveness, knowing who you are and what boundaries you will enforce, determination, developing goals, and having faith and hope. When people learn how to forgive, they free themselves to grow into an individual of value and worth. Some of these steps may seem difficult and require hard work, but in the end, you will be glad you made the effort. Even though our past influences us, it does not define us.
