Battling with a past soiled by bullying, racism, and ostracisation, he opens up with personal stories and enthralling encounters, and shares practical tips on how you can reclaim your peace and balance through the practice of True Humility.

  • Discern modern society practices of self-centred behaviours
  • Analyse three moral values which will shape your life
  • Find real peace through True Humility
  • Practise True Humility and create positive impact
  • Attain humble characteristics through relatable characters

If you are searching in vain for your positive, happy self, this book will lead you back to the right path.


Praise for the book 

Gavin is an inspiring young man who has had an incredible life journey. In Gavin’s book, he shares many practical tools, concepts, and testimonies about how the True Humility value helped him get through a tough childhood filled with bullying, racism, and ostracism, as a result of attending seven schools in seven years. I strongly believe that everyone, no matter who you are and what position you hold, can benefit from embracing True Humility like Gavin, and find long-lasting balance and happiness. Being humble demonstrates respect for oneself and is a beautiful way of showing love to fellow people in society. I encourage you to get a copy of
