Insights for Your Life From Fairy Tales and Fables
by Grant D. Fairley
While many people hope their story will end up like a fairy tale where they live “happily ever after”, most people will find challenges and celebrations in their relationships with others in their marriage, family, friendships and work relationships. You may try and surround yourself with the best people for you but they may not always turn out to be who you think they are. Whatever you do it is always beneficial to look at things in your life from a different angle to gain a greater understanding of them. Individual, business, organizational and spiritual applications are also included in this book.
Grant D. Fairley takes a number of the classic fairy tales that we all know so well and shares insights into how these apply to our lives.
