People say things happen in threes. Motivated by a series of setbacks in his own life - business failure (twice), the death of his grandmother and a break-up with his would-be fiancé - Antony Stagg craved the evidence that life would get better and so embarked on a mission to discover inspiration and meaning to life. What he discovered far surpassed expectation, as his journey took him into the lives of some of the most extraordinary and resilient individuals from across the globe. IF I CAN DO IT YOU CAN TOO is the result of Antony Stagg’s two year project and now he invites you to share the twenty incredible stories and his six steps to help overcome your own obstacles.
Each chapter introduces the reader to a different individual, detailing not only how Antony met them and how they helped him on his journey but also the extremely personal stories of how they dealt with their own hardship. Contributors include, Clarence Adoo, a musician who, after car accident, was informed by doctors he was paralysed from the neck down. A doctor said to Clarence, ‘it’s ok to be angry.’ Clarence’s response was, ‘what is there to be angry about?’ His uplifting anecdote tells of how he discovered an inner strength going on to receive an MBE from Prince Charles and to found the Paraorchestra which closed the Paralympic Games, London 2012, in front of 80,000 people. Incredibly personal, real and original, each story deals with a relatable issue including; alcohol addiction, anorexia, cancer, the loss of a child and severe health problems - experiences that every person in the world has either encountered for themselves or witnessed first hand in a friend or family member.
Through the journey, one of the achievements of this book is twenty per-cent of the profits will support a school for orphans in Nairobi, Kenya, a school which is named after the book. The rooms in the school will be named after the incredible people who have told their stories to the world in a bid to provide inspiration and to teach a philosophy to help others overcome adversity and believe in their dreams.
