Myra Dorsey Turns Tragedy into a Page Turner

Myra Dorsey Turns Tragedy into a Page Turner

At some point, we all face adversity and challenging times. But what we choose to do with the lessons we learn through them can make a world of difference. For Myra Dorsey, author of the book “Benefit of the Doubt,” she has taken her struggles and turned them into a page-turning book that helps others learn how to change their mindset in order to change their life.

“People are brought up to believe and aspire to many different things, and our lives can take many different directions,” explains Myra Dorsey. “We may get caught in traps of thinking one way when, in order to overcome challenges and live our lives to the fullest, we need to be willing to change the way we think.”

Many people dream of a career in music, yet don’t know where to begin or how to make it happen. For those who do, there are often certain things that they do in order to make it big. Knowing what those things are, and being able to pull them off, can make all the difference.

“Many people who want to become musicians or have a career in the hip hop industry shy away from it because they are afraid they won’t be successful,” explains Steve Lobel, well-known celebrity music manager. “But their success starts with what they believe. If you believe in yourself, you can make it happen.”
