In this heartfelt memoir, motivational speaker and life coach Keith D. Harrell writes passionately about the lessons he’s learned from his parents, grandmother, teachers, coaches, mentors, and friends as he overcame stuttering to become one of the nation’s top-ranked professional speakers. Tall, skinny and shy, Harrell painfully learned on his first day of school that he couldn’t talk like the other students. Embarrassed by the kids’ teasing and feeling dejected, he ran home during recess, where he was met by an understanding mom who wouldn’t allow him to remain discouraged. The lesson Harrell gained from this experience and imparts to his readers is: God specializes in originals. He doesn’t make junk! Each chapter in this heartfelt book begins with a quote from the Bible and concludes with a touching and insightful life lesson. Harrell’s story encompasses his years of speech therapy, the awkwardness of being a foot or two taller than his elementary-school teachers, his father’s tough love, the anguish of his parents’ divorce, gaining confidence through playing basketball—and eventually being scouted by the NBA and then watching his dream evaporate. He goes on to recount the trials he underwent in the corporate world as he sought out his true passion, and how he built a fledgling business into a million-dollar enterprise, eventually receiving enormous acclaim as a professional speaker. Harrell’s faith in God and unflagging attitude propelled him to success as he enthusiastically tackled each obstacle that beset him along his path. In An Attitude of Gratitude, he presents this story as an inspiring source of encouragement for anyone who has ever experienced setbacks and wants to learn how to become better equipped to handle each challenge as it arises.

This book explores the power of your thoughts and how changing your thoughts can change your destiny. Everything is created twice. It is first a thought before it becomes a thing. I have come to recognize and realize that the major stumbling block that prevents and obstructs most people from achieving the results they desire in their life is what lies between our ears, that is, our THOUGHTS. In the final analysis, this book reinforces the truth that our thoughts are powerful and that we are greater than our history, circumstance, and conditions. We are the master of our own destiny. Your Thoughts Matter. Change your Thoughts and Change your Destiny!

The plans and purpose for all whom God created are always good plans, and with a perfect outcome for its fulfillment according to Jeremiah 29:11. The term “dropped” in the context of this book is synonymous to unforeseeable tragic events that have happened to so many people, which have created adverse chain reactions to the entire course of their journey on earth. Many were ‘dropped’ by their abusive parents or close relatives, which remain an emotional scar in their minds for many years to come, many friends have betrayed their close confidants at the most crucial junction of their lives, husbands or wives dropping their families over matters they considered irreconcilable, without considering the lives of their children who will be affected negatively by such decisions. Many were dropped from grace to grass by their attitudes towards God in their flagrant disobedience to things that honor Him. Many people with these ‘dropped’ experiences in their lives, always possess similar traits of insecurity, inferiority complex, thoughts of not being good enough to achieve great things, and possibilities of hiding their hurts and “crippleness” for the fear of being ridiculed or dropped a second time. My sincere prayer for anyone that comes across the book, who has been dropped either by human errors or unexpected challenges, and which is still a source of hurt in your heart... is that through this book, your Creator who loves you with an everlasting love, will reach down to your inner soul and heal you. Turning your past disappointment into a tool for major advancements in your life, and the source of healing for others who will come in contract with you in Jesus name.
