“If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, endeavor to live the life which you’ve imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
-Henry David Thoreau
WHY THIS BOOK?
” It was not that long ago when I found myself at the lowest point I ever want to be in my life. I had hit my personal “bottom.” While I was not quite homeless (I had lived in a car for several days) I was living as close to it as you can get. I had no job, a furnished room in one of the worst neighborhoods in New York City, few friends left, failing health and little hope for the future.
Yes, I even thought of suicide. However, I knew these circumstances could change if I were given half a chance.
When I could no longer stand the pain, I reached out and asked for help. Through a strong faith and supportive people, my life slowly began turning around. During this process, I began to read and listen to self help books and tapes and attend talks and seminars on personal development.
I began to learn ideas and techniques that I was able to put to use to make changes in my life and begin to live the kind of life I wanted. The ideas in this small book are designed to give you some of those tools for your own use. This is not theory. I have “walked the walk, “ I understand what it is like to feel pain. I also know that you can do something about it.
Wherever you are at this moment, know that you can change your life. You can use these simple ideas and techniques to create a life that is beyond any that you have imagined. They worked for me and they’ll work for you too. You will need to do the work but the reward will be worth it.
I challenge you to take charge of your own life and begin now to create the kind of life you deserve to live. You are entitled to live a long, joyous, abundant, exciting life. This is your birthright. If you are experiencing less, you are shortchanging yourself.
