RETRACE - FOREWORD

FOREWORD

After a 90-minute session on Book Publishing and Marketing Mastery, my client, a man in his late fifties said to me, “I am glad I'm just learning this. I wish I knew this all my life. I didn't know my story was this interesting. I don't know there were lots of things to help me make the best of publishing.
All that man said only presented itself in one word to me. I couldn't exactly pin down what the word was, but I knew it was something that a lot of young people were taking for granted.
When I began to read Retrace, I found that word. I found it in plural form—opportunities.
I caught the word: the word that wraps up all the things he said to me. I cried a little. And I laughed too. By the time I got to the last page, there came an adjective to qualify it as limitless opportunities.
Val Eze has his way with words. Having sat in the same lecture hall for five years with the first author in a class of over one hundred and thirty students, he is one of those, whose words and actions align.
With Retrace, Val walks a path where many see as impossible to pass through. He doesn't do so as a person of authority; he does as his story portrays—of a multi-talented, whose clarity about life comes from his consistency in fully applying himself in every situation. This is the real story of a life I know: his ability to tread paths until the grasses give way and the route becomes clear to those who desire to tread this path. This is still his present nature.
Today, Val creates limitless opportunities with Retrace. It is a call to originality, immersion and overflow. The narrative turns us into the within, undresses our limiting beliefs, and presents us face-to-face with the truth that we have been running away from. Have I even talked about how he talked about fear? Amazing! Go ahead and see for yourself.
Another thing to note is the power of building networks across. Val opens our eyes to the simple analogy of how we can build and collaborate with our own cheerleaders whilst seeking to bind with those at the top. Judging from my own personal life, Retrace provides that simple process of building a ladder that aids the climb to your dreams.
You've just gotten a copy! I am proud of you! You are damn lucky! No, scratch that! You are rich: richer than all others who only have money.
Now, dig deep without wasting a moment. Turn the pages over and again. His words are simple. He speaks in a language that only humble minds can understand.
When you find the words that hit you, do me a favour! Share that word with the world! Tell them you are on a retrace. Ask them to do exactly what you have done to stay on track—that is, to get a copy too.
Retrace is the kind of book you read in your room, in the bus, at the restaurant and when you take a stage.
I hope you have the same feeling I had until I had read the last page of this book.
Have a good time reading.
