Standing Strong

This book is especially good for those who, not only are bullied, but also who could be a bystander to bullying. I feel that in every news story nowadays, it's all about the victim and his/her feelings. Don't get me wrong. It's great to know about the victims' perspective, but I feel it's overrated.

Every article is about someone being a victim to something. Sometimes I feel that people get easily offended in the little things and everyone should just get a chill pill. It's good to stand up against bullies as this is what the book is about, but we shouldn't broadcast all our troubles on the Internet for money and sympathy. So all I'm saying is to read this book with an open mind: a mind that is receptive to standing strong against a bully and not living a victimized life.

About this book: With no arms, no legs, and no defense, Nick Vujicic was once a bully’s target and knows what it feels like to be picked on and pushed around:  It makes your stomach hurt, gives you nightmares, and feels like there is no hope in sight. But Nick shows how you too can overcome and rise above bullying.  

No Bully Can Define Who You Are

Nick has experienced bullying of all kinds for being “different.” But he’s learned that he doesn’t have to play the bully’s game–and neither do you. In Stand Strong Nick gives you strategies for developing a “bully defense system,” so you can handle bullies of all kinds by building your strength from the inside out.

Find out how to:
·         Turn being bullied into a great opportunity (yes, really!)
·         Create a safety zone within yourself
·         Establish strong values that no bully can shake
·         Deal with cyber bullies
·         Develop a spiritual foundation to stay strong against bullying
·         Monitor your emotions and control your response to them
·         Help others who are being bullied
Are you facing the unwanted attention of a bully?  You can stand up to the challenge, because you have greater power over your feelings and your life than you may think! Just ask Nick--the man with no arms or legs…and “a ridiculously good life.”
