Guest 2: After a life-threatening ski accident, doctors weren’t sure Steve H. Lawton would survive. But because of his attitude, his helmet, a message from God and a rubber chicken named Henrietta, Lawton not only survived, but recovered nearly completely and lives to share his tale and the wonders of positivity.
In his new book, “Head First! A Crash Course in Positivity” (Fedd Books, September 2016), Lawton shares his inspirational story as well as eight practical positivity principles he took away from the tragedy, and instructions on how to implement them in your life immediately.
