An inspirational story that will resonate with all age groups from adults to teenagers, parents, mentors, and leaders, The Valley of Hope: A fable about self-discovery and a quest to find your true destiny takes us on an uplifting quest of self-discovery. Ping, a smooth little ball adopted by the Pong family is convinced his destiny is to be a golf champion. Misguidedly believing this is his true vocation, he strives valiantly to meet the aspirations of his family and bravely bears the vicious wrath of Thorn, his tutor in golf school, who whacks him relentlessly and fails miserably to get Ping to do anything right. Ping thinks he's a loser and finds solace among the Bad Balls for a while, but realises this too is not his true calling. Befriended by intriguing characters like Sunny the Sunflower, Chippie, Daphne, and Gardenia, Ping recognises the value of true friends, who strengthen his resolve and support him through his trials and tribulations as well as the joys and triumphs of his journey. With the help of Great Ping Fu, who acts as his guide and mentor, Ping encounters the lessons and mysteries of the Less Travelled Road, the Path Unknown, the Gardens of Criticism, Destruction, Forgiveness and Resentment to find his way onto the Destiny Train that sees him fulfil his potential. His journey ends in the Valley of Hope, where he discovers his true destiny. Carolyn Landesman is an inspirational leader, executive coach, and motivator.
