FESTIVAL BOOK

Things No One Else Can Teach Us

In <em>Things No One Else Can Teach Us</em>, Humble the Poet flips the conventional script for happiness and success, showing us how our hardest moments can be our greatest teachers. Humble the Poet uses raw, honest stories from his own life to reveal how a change in mindset can help us to see all experiences, particularly the most difficult, as opportunities for growth. This shifting of perspective – from seeing only the negative to beginning to see the lesson, or the positive spin – is the “magic” that allows us to take control of our lives. It’s a power we all possess; we just don’t often embrace it.
