They say when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. But what if a person isn't handed lemons but rather creates a sour situation on his or her own? If you're Days of our Lives' Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis), you do everything in your power to transform it into something sweet.
As fans of the Emmy-winning actor may recall, he caused a serious car accident back in 2014 that left him injured and his now-fianceť Alyssa Tabit barely clinging to life. Smith pled guilty to a first-degree misdemeanor (operating a vehicle while under the influence) and a fourth degree felony (vehicular assault) in 2015, and since that time, both he and Tabit have been on a mission to inspire and help individuals reach their fullest potential. And that's where the couple's self-help book, titled The Pivot Principle, comes in.
Meant to help readers master their mindsets, pivot their actions, and elevate their lives, The Pivot Principle is a guidebook for anyone looking to make some serious positive changes. Through raw and honest experiences, Smith and Tabit share how to pivot in order to revamp one's life, including getting over self-doubt and the fear of rejection, stepping out of one's comfort zone, effectively changing one's inner circle, slaying time management, failing forward and growing from mistakes, taking control of one's health, making a great first impression, and becoming more influential.
"We are so excited to share The Pivot Principle with the world and ignite a ripple effect of positivity!" the couple enthuses of the book, which is now available for pre-order, with shipping beginning on Wednesday, December 12.
And speaking of positivity, we're positively certain fans of the Emmy-winning actor and his fianceť will be happy to hear that any soft copy of the book ordered before December 12 will include personal autographs from both Smith and Tabit.
