Dr. Larry Manley, Author Of 'Filling My Life With Joy', Details His Real Life 'The Pursuit Of Happiness' Story

Motivating books and inspirational books can be found everywhere. Many of these are platitudes, simple words of encouragement or motivation based on theory. Dr. Larry Manley writes from real life experience. In his latest book he details how he overcame incredible challenges to create a life filled with joy. He demonstrates clearly how others can achieve that goal

Dr. Larry Manley has released 'Filling My Life With Joy/A Guide to the Better You'. Dr. Manley's new work describes his own 35-year journey through addiction, homelessness, jail and eventual redemption through sheer determination, perseverance and faith. His story has been called a real life version of 'The Pursuit Of Happiness'.

Dr. Manley's book differs from other motivating books, inspirational books and religious books. He teaches readers how to nourish their souls with what he calls the three 'essential ingredients', and asks them to then stand back and watch it grow.

“I wrote the book," stated Dr. Manley, "to help people find their way back to their place of honor and respect; to be able to live a life of joy as God intended. I discovered my own personal joy from an unseen force of Supreme Authority that convinced me to once again stand tall."

In this inspirational book, Dr. Manley shares three powerful concepts that, if embraced, can bring peace, joy and success to anyone's life, regardless of circumstance:

1. Something that's right for us to do
2. Somethign that's right for us to love
3. Something that's right for us to hope for

"My revelation," Dr. Manley continued, "compelled me to share these three things that can bring joy to anyone’s life. These facets are something that’s right for us to do, love and hope for. As ‘gardeners of our soul’, these powerful forces can cause our lives to bloom once again."

While primarily a Christian's book, 'Filling My Life With Joy' provides rock solid, true-to-life, specific guidance to anyone who might be experiencing life challenges, regardless of the severity or perceived hopelessness of those challenges. As the popular movie 'The Pursuit Of Happyness' gave thousands of people hope, Dr. Manley offers not only encouragement and motivation but also specific methods for achieving one’s goals. Above all, he provides proof that anyone can overcome the challenges faced by following the guidance in 'Filling My Life With Joy/A Guide To The Better You'.
