As many of you may have noticed, we frequently pass in our life through good and bad seasons. A good season gives its place to a bad, and a bad season gives its place to a good one – and so on. Great German composer Ludwig van Beethoven, for example, went through a bad period around the age of 32 because he had become totally deaf. Contemplating suicide, he wrote his will. Then a good season returned. Beethoven overcame his hearing problem, was recognized as one of the greatest composers of all time – he wrote nine insuperable symphonies – and became a celebrated member of Viennese society.
Napoleon provides another example. During a good season of his life, he conquered almost all of Europe, was crowned Emperor of France, and lived a life full of grandeur, triumph, and success. Then a bad season arrived: Napoleon lost all he had achieved, he was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo, and he was exiled ultimately to the remote island of St. Helena.
How do our lives’ seasons alternate, however? Is there any certain pattern – and thus we can foresee how long each season would last? Or do they alternate irregularly and at random? In this book we will find the answer. Based on the answer we will see after that how we can benefit from our lives’ alternations of seasons.
The results are astonishing, all helping us to live a much better life. You will see among other things, why you mustn’t be seized by despair and pessimism when you are in a bad season –fearing that this season will never end. Winston Churchill, for example, failed his exams in school again and again when he was in a bad season of his life, and at a moment of another of his bad seasons he said: “I am done, I am finished.” But later he became prime minister of his country.
You will also see why you can dare when you are in a good season – fate is with you. Christopher Columbus, for example, succeeded in discovering the New World since he was in a good season of his life, despite of the fact that almost everybody – the Spanish royal council included – was skeptical and had rejected his idea.
There are many other benefits deriving from our lives’ alternations of seasons, as you will see in detail in the book. Based on these, you’ll be able to take crucial decisions regarding your career, marriage, family, relationships, and all other life’s issues.
To find whether our lives’ seasons alternate according to a certain pattern, there is only one sure method: we will see from the biographies of famous people how their good and bad seasons alternated in their lives. Did they alternate according to a certain pattern, or irregularly and at random? We start with the biography of great German composer Ludwig van Beethoven. More biographies will follow.
