A frustrated commuter loses his cool in the car.

UNFORTUNATELY it's the society we live in but people are "ugly" towards each other - on the drive to work, at the checkout line, on Facebook and Twitter.

But, Nola Anne Hennessy says people must be shown a better way to treat one another before behaviours can change.

In her new book, No Boxing Allowed, Ms Hennessy discusses her personal journey of leaving an unhappy marriage, finding a new path without fear and healing herself of a lifetime of suffering.

"I have witnessed and been a victim of various acts of violence and inhumanity," Ms Hennessy said.

"It is these acts that inspire me to do everything I can to turn around what is clearly wrong in our world."

No Boxing Allowed takes readers through the path Ms Hennessy took to achieve self-intelligence and inner serenity.

"Having been in senior leadership business roles from the age of 19, my abilities to lead, inspire, manage, nurture and influence others have culminated in decades of research," Ms Hennessy said.

"I decided to share what I have learned, so that others could benefit from my wisdom and experience."

This inspiring book is a guide to life and has become a sought-after reference for people seeking to make positive change around the globe.

Readers are taught how to recognise personal power for the betterment of themselves, are provided with an invaluable checklist of great leadership behaviours, taught how to recognise controlling behaviours of others and inspired to be the best they can be.

Readers are encouraged to erase their fears, trust their abilities and remove their baggage.

 

No Boxing Allowed, RRP $16.95, at balboapress.com, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
