Everyone believes that the future is Utopia. Nothing goes wrong, peace is maintained and World War -III never happens. I can tell you first hand, that is false. Forget everything you ever knew about the future because it’s never going to happen. The air is toxic and one whiff can kill you. We have nutrient injecting boxes that we use a substitute for food since a meal is too expensive. Forget water since you’ll not find a drop of it. The earth is a barren waste land where only the largest cities have stepped up to survive. Under the protection of the Dome we hide from them, they who have lost humanity. All this made to be by one mistake, only one. But we have learned an important lesson: It is never too late to fix a mistake. This is my story of how it came to be, my story of how it’s going to change. This is my path, A Path to Change Yesterday.

Becoming God creates a fictional world of freedom where one can make anything possible by believing in oneself. The story revolves around the protagonist, Parnog, a sales professional. Things change when Parnog is drawn into a strange world and realizes he is no ordinary human being but an extension of the creators of our galaxy. He was created for a purpose—to save the world from negative forces. He is one of seven people selected to do this. However, he is the only one aware of the purpose. Parnog learns about life, people, relationships, and things about himself during the journey. He makes new friends with people from the alien world and earth. Will Parnog find the other six people? Will he be able to become GOD? Will he succeed in what he wishes to? Every choice you make makes you either strong or weak, but even weakness teaches you how to build again. Humans were never weak, it was a choice they made, and they made a negative one. Do you think the choice you make next will get you something? Choose wisely.
Most people are living an unfortunate, shoddy, superficial life with no sense of direction, no sense of purpose, no hope for integrated living, no meaningful relationships; but merely dragging through life on autopilot mode and accumulating worldly experiences and artifacts. What can one do to create an exceptional life? An exceptional life is not something that happens by accident, it has to be created. In this transformative new book, Justine Chinoperekweyi shows that the journey to exceptionality is a creative-intelligent and self-powered wheel. There are certain key ingredients needed by any human being who is seeking perfection. Exceptionality Without Relapse is about those who want to excel in all areas of life by enhancing perception and intelligence. The book helps readers to think from different perspectives and bring about an integrated comprehension of life. The book suggests pathways and principles through which people can transition from insufficiency to a point where they seek opportunities. Hence, in order to live a meaningful life, one should be able to recognize his/her greatness. This would help them become exceptional.
