About this title


Celebrated gymnast Mary Lou Retton shares the inspiring philosophies behind her success--and offers seven practical gateways to finding happiness in your own life.

Who can forget Mary Lou Retton's perfect vault and winning smile? Fifteen years after her Olympic triumph, Mary Lou is no longer the little girl on the Wheaties box--she's a dynamic, accomplished mother of two who has become one of America's most sought-after motivational speakers and an inspiration to people everywhere. Now, in Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness, she shares her secrets for achieving a balanced, fulfilling career and life and presents seven gateways that can guide you in cultivating lasting happiness every day.

Based on her remarkable experiences as an Olympic athlete, professional speaker and spokesperson, wife, and mother, Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness shows that, even with life's challenges and obstacles, happiness is always within our reach--you just have to know how to grab hold of it. The seven gateways she presents--Family, Faith, Relationships, Attitude, Discipline, Health, and Laughter--are the tools we can use to improve our sense of contentment and well-being, whether it's by realizing our true dreams and ambitions, taking care of our bodies, incorporating spiritual faith into our daily routine, or devoting more time to the special people in our lives. For each gateway, Mary Lou provides concrete suggestions, action plans, and even recipes to help you embrace its principles and make it work for you. From visualization and communication exercises to time management, and spiritual practices, Mary Lou's warmhearted prescriptions and advice will help you discover your deepest needs, reduce stress, and open the door to a life filled with peace, prosperity, and love.

Flavored with inspiring stories from renowned athletes and celebrities, and brimming with the trademark enthusiasm and energy that have made her such a beloved American figure, Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness is a fresh and engaging collection of wisdom that will enable you to realize your true potential. The next time you look in the mirror, that winning smile will belong to you!

From the Back Cover:

From Mary Lou Retton's Introduction:

True joy and happiness are within reach for all of us no matter how bad our circumstances may seem. If you think your marriage or relationship isn't working, if the shape of your body seems unattractive to you, if your career is more draining than satisfying, you can make a change and find the peace and satisfaction that will bring a smile to your face. In this book, I've identified seven gateways--Family, Faith, Relationships, Attitude, Discipline, Health, and Laughter--that will take you one step further down the road to true happiness. It is my dream to inspire you to walk through these gateways for yourself and craft an exciting, accomplished, and extremely fulfilling life.
