Imagine for One Minute....
You find a book, propped up on a table, on a park bench, left on the train with a message just for you. A post it note on the front of the book reads “This Book is For You. Read it. Love it. Pay it Forward”. Once you open the book you find a handwritten note inside, written by a complete stranger, that touches your heart and shows you that someone cares…..
An early morning walk…
On Boxing Day 2016, Positive Psychologist Kezia Luckett went for a 5am walk to clear her head. That walk would positively change the lives of billions worldwide as she pondered an age old question ” If you could go back in time to a negative pivotal moment in your life, would you change anything?”.
With this and many other questions running through her mind, she hurried home and sat in front of her computer as her fingers took on a life of their own, she mapped out not only a book that would connect 55 women in one mission from around the globe, but a new positive psychology modality Mind Conditioning Therapy© that would enable people to gain the wisdom, knowledge and inspiration from past events, and change their stories of them, to empower others.
So in 2018 the´Pay it Forward´books were born, a unique concept that not only pays forward the knowledge gained within its pages, but also has created a worldwide movement that the reader can join by paying forward the book. Once read there is space within the book for the reader to write their own message of hope and inspiration and then they are invited to put a post it note on the front of the book that reads “THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. READ IT. LOVE IT. PAY IT FORWARD” and leave it for a stranger to find. In this edition, Volume 4, Kezia has collaborated in a one off with the Imperfectly Perfect Campaign.

ONE BILLION LIVES WORLDWIDE
The Imperfectly Perfect Campaign
In 2012 after suffering with body dysmorphia, Glenn Marsden would come back onto social media, to find that a friend back in the UK had committed suicide. As he sat in total shock, his first thought was, how on earth will his wife tell their little boy, who was the same age as Glenn´s son that daddy was never coming home again?
It was a combination of the two that would set him on a journey to destigmatize all the things we think make us imperfect, disrupt social media, and break down the barriers that keep so many isolated and alone and the Imperfectly Perfect Campaign was created.
With that passion inside of him, he was able to build this vision that was laid on his heart and turn it in to an international organisation which to date has been featured on Publications and Networks Globally and has amassed over 450 + Influential Public Figures getting on board with him.
