“Before you were born, the universe assigned each one of us a personal hater. And if it were not for this person to muddy the waters in our otherwise peaceful existence, life would become one big gigantic bore.”
Salty People is an eye-opening narrative about moving beyond those who are envious of you, forgiving and finding peace with your past, appreciating the haters in life, and using these experiences as motivation to become the best version of yourself. In this humorous and profoundly relatable book, communication expert Charles Rivers emphasizes how the salty people in our lives work to inspire our dreams more than kind words would. Once we understand who strengthens us and weakens us, we can become more successful.
Have you ever had a friend or coworker who gave you their unsolicited two cents about your personal life? Or a lover who refused to support your goals because they thought your dreams were unattainable? Perhaps you have a parent or a sibling who is constantly second-guessing your opinions, regardless if you have proven that you are a capable, independent adult. If only we realized that the universe had intentionally endowed these people to exist for one purpose: To spark our initial passion for life.
Now, thanks to the worry and doubts of the salty people in your life, your spark has been ignited, and you’re out to show them that you’re not the wallflower they think you are! Come hell or high water; you will prove them wrong!
