The Book – Behind the Rear View Mirror
Beyond the Rear View Mirror is the inspiring story of how Shelley Streit defied the odds against her achieving success in life after a childhood spent in the child welfare system following experiences of abandonment, rejection, and abuse as a child. While Shelley could easily have slipped into a less-than-desirable lifestyle, she chose to forge ahead at every challenge or setback, each time taking one step closer to a richer and more successful life.
Her story is both illustrative of the basic human instinct for survival and self-preservation as well as a clear indication of how the resilience which is ultimately required to achieve success in life involves equal parts emotional intelligence, mental toughness, and unfailing courage that reframes every setback and failure as just another, surmountable detour on the incredible road of life.
