Life’s Tough - You can be Tougher

When Dustin was four, he saw his father beat a man to death. He was not traumatized by it, because it was just another day in the Roper household. A year earlier, his 5 year old sister became his adopted mother, as they were left to defend for themselves in a trailer-park home with their dad, a criminal and drug addict. This book is a blueprint on how to resolve the past, no matter how bad it was, and transform it into an endless source of energy to build the life you want. Life’s Tough shows you how to go from surviving to thriving.
