She was tired of people telling her what she should be doing because deep down she knew, she wanted to leave him and the abuse behind but she was scared, she had three young children to care for and was penniless and didn’t know where to go, she had very limited qualifications and work experience and more importantly lacked the confidence and understanding that she deserved better. What she really wanted was for someone to save her, someone to tell her how, how can my life change, how do I do this? How do I become that confident person who fights for a better life?
Over the next 20 years Toni’s journey to self-discovery lead to many life lessons that were crucial in learning how to love who she was, to realise that the strength she needed for a better life was already inside of her, that she was actually powerful beyond belief and that her happiness was dependent on a choice that she herself was in control of and no one else. Positive People Win is a compilation of written learning material that gave Toni the knowledge and the tools she needed to help change her words, actions, beliefs and understanding that inspired and motivated her to be the person she always wanted to be and to have the life she always wanted to have. Toni shares the knowledge contained in her book to inspire hope and share the truth that every person has the power within to live a life they love.
The cover of this book was especially hand painted by Liz Childs – an Australian Aboriginal artist. It is an abstract of the Tree of Life and its meaning is wisdom and knowledge.
