Adopting an Attitude of Triumph


“Challenges are inevitable, but the decisions we make to face them or flee from them profoundly impacts our ability to overcome or be overtaken.”

The Author

Gregory Works is more that an overcomer. His ability to transparently share his journey allows his readers to glean the tried-and-true strategies necessary to overcome any overwhelming challenge or obstacle blocking your triumph. The power of his voice, sharing his story will renew your belief in his quote “it is not about the knock-down, but about the get-up!”

“I penned the words to this book not only to inspire, inform, and encourage my daughters as they grow in grace, wisdom, and beauty, but also to motivate the readers of this book. Challenges are inevitable, but the decisions that we make to face them or flee from them (also known as fight or flight) will make a profound difference in our ability to overcome or be overtaken by trials, pain, suffering, and challenges in our lives. I hope my story will ignite the flame within you to burn again or to keep burning brightly.”

This captivating read is part memoir, part instructional manual on how to be a successful organ transplant recipient.

It provides a blueprint for navigating the harrowing experience of becoming an organ recipient and nurturing the fragile nature of life. In this book, we learn how faith, redemption, the power of prayer, and obedience serve as building blocks that let us bear witness to the mesmerizing manner in which God works miracles for those who love Him.

Triumph is a fitting title for this raw reflection on Greg’s journey.

I can attest to some of the unvarnished truth and wisdom he shares in Triumph. I believe God built us for community, for each other. Community not only helps us with our challenges but helps us focus on God as our true source and provider. It amazes me how even though Greg was going through an enormous challenge, he still took time to invest in others. Greg’s investment in others allowed God to shower him with blessings that contributed to his healing and recovery.

Greg took on the challenge of dealing with a potentially debilitating illness, polycystic kidney disease.

He conquered kidney disease by committing to the lifestyle changes that preserved his life and allowed him to inspire others. Sometimes God does something to you, to do something for you. Greg showed valor, humility, and strength, as an example for his family and others, to witness, in real time, strategies for pushing through adversity. Triumph inspired me, and I know it will inspire so many others.”

Triumph is a must-read that describes how to battle a health crisis while facing menacing medical trials, financial uncertainty, spiritual certainty and the unknown.

Watch Greg’s faith prevail as he slays medical giants not once, but twice. The principles he outlines are applicable for effectively combating kidney disease, cancer, diabetes, and other life altering medical conditions. Greg’s courage and optimism permit him to lean on God as the source of his strength and persistence.
