You Can't Ruin My Day: 52 Wake-Up Calls to Turn Any Situation Around
You Can’t Ruin My Day contains 52 themes to help readers take back their power and not let other people or other situations ruin their day.
Each of these themes has three sections: Wake-Up Call (the potential day-ruiner); Follow-Up Exercise (practical steps to turn it around); and Lighten-Up Laugh (gaining a fresh perspective and moving right along).
Each of the 52 stories and wake-up calls in the book are amazing and inspiring. One couple lost almost all of their money to Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme; instead of bitterness, they chose to learn from their mistake and move on. From getting a parking ticket to family squabbles to life-changers such as the loss of a job, Klein offers wisdom, good humor, and coping skills that improve the quality of life.
Ever hear of a “Jollytologist”? Well meet the world’s one and only—Allen Klein, who shows people worldwide how to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies.
Klein got into this unusual line of work after his wife died of a rare liver disease at the age of 34. He saw how humor helped her, and those around her, cope. He is a recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor as well as a Toastmasters Communication and Leadership Award and a Certified Speaking Professional designation.
He is the author of 25 books including the bestselling book, The Healing Power of Humor.
