As a single father of three children, I would often think about what life would be like for my kids once I passed on. My main concerns were; how would they handle my passing and is there anything I could leave them that could help them along in their journeys? Soon after asking myself these questions, I started insurance policies for each of my children that would allow them to draw income once they reached a certain age. As good as it felt to do that, it didn’t quiet my concerns. I was still thinking, what could I leave my children that could help them along in their journeys? One day while driving home from work, I heard the words, “write a book.” Although I had never written a book before, I immediately became excited about the idea and couldn’t wait to get started! As I began writing this book, all of my concerns were silenced and I realized that this book was the answer to my initial question, what could I leave my kids to help them along in their journeys, once I’m gone? In this book I share lessons that I’ve learned over the course of 46 years that have transformed my life. The things I talk about throughout this book are things that I’ve used in my life to beat depression, drug and alcohol addiction, obesity, being suicidal, poverty, and so much more. Most importantly, I learned how to be happy and enjoy life, regardless of what I was going through. I soon realized that this book would be the greatest gift that I could ever leave my children.
I know without a doubt that this book will help, not just my kids, but anyone that reads it and applies these principles to their life. That’s why I decided to make it available to the public.
