Fight for the Future
About the Book
THENA—Fight for the Future is an inspirational self-improvement and spiritual development story of Tuana Dowan herself, of the people who had positive and negative impacts in her life, and of Thena, who introduced herself as Tuana’s higher self in her dreams. Thena informed her of who Tuana was, the reincarnation principle, and the past lives, her pre-birth plans, her good and bad karma that she carried into her present life, and the negative intrusions in her current life. She also told Tuana that she was a Lightworker, alongside a few thousand others incarnated in this period, with a mission to spread light, in the form of knowledge, freedom, and love on Earth, and that she would play a very important role in the enlightenment of many people.
Tuana met Thena several times in the following years; besides acting as a guide in Tuana’s self-improvement and spiritual development process, Thena gave her some information from the future, and all her prophecies materialized in time. Under the illuminating guidance of Thena and the positive people she met along the way, Tuana improved her self-esteem and courage, released her ego, and built up her patience. She set up goals in the light of her mission and pursued them, no matter what she encountered. She changed her career and became a trainer and a consultant in the field of soft-skills development. Learning to go out of her comfort zones and routines allowed Tuana to become a person with inner peace, mindfulness, and altruistic love.
THENA—Fight for the Future encourages readers to reach for the hero within and find the courage to create a happier, healthier, and more successful life.
About the Author
Tuana Dowan is an instructional designer, trainer and consultant specialized in self-development. She holds a BSc in sociology with minors in psychology and education, and an MBA degree.
After completing her MBA, she started working as a consultant on Quality Management Systems. She considered the Total Quality Management (TQM) a tool that promised five-star results in producing successful organizations. A few months of working with people from all levels in different organizations taught her a lesson: people were not as enthusiastic as she was for the quality applications. Almost no one was willing to participate actively; motivation level, leadership skills, teamwork, and initiative were poor.
At that point, she started working on a self-improvement model that would guide people in becoming happier, healthier, more successful, more productive, and more competitive in life. She developed the Personal Quality Management (PQM) model in 1997. PQM was a structured system for self-improvement with twelve components: self-knowledge, accepting change, setting up goals, positive energy, self-esteem development, time management, creativity, effective communications, conflict resolution, stress management, motivation, and teamwork. From then on, she assumed the responsibility of helping organizations develop their organizational structures by implementing OD methodologies and TQM principles, and training human resources in soft skills by putting the PQM fundamentals into effect.
Coming from a positive background and actively practicing the self-development principles along the way has contributed tremendously in solving the challenging situations she encountered in her life, as well as successfully mentoring and coaching other people.
Tuana Dowan lives in Cupertino, California, and works on the second half of her spiritual development story.
