You see things and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were and I say, ‘Why not?
~ George Bernard Shaw
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
~ Joel A. Barker
A NOTE TO THE READER:
I thought it only appropriate to begin this book by telling you a bit about my personal story, or rather, what my personal story is and what it is not.
My story is not one of rags to riches, or surviving a grave illness. It is not a story about dealing with the death of one’s parent, or overcoming a traumatic childhood. Nor is it a story of great leadership or power of authority. Rather, it is the story of how I fulfilled on a long-held dream of building a successful company, after a series of near fatalities and inopportune choices. It is a story of how I let go of my obsession with success in exchange for complete devotion to a mission of the greater good and a 100% commitment to my crystalline purpose. It is a story of how I aligned myself with the right people at the right time to make something happen beyond my wildest dreams. It is both a story of failure and one of optimism.
It is a story of overcoming negativity, reprogramming one’s brain, and understanding the difference between a mindset of abundance and one of lack. It is a story of seeing plentitude in every choice, filtering scarcity from the mind, and having fun in the process. It is a story of fulfillment of dreams when dreams seem impossible. It is a story that ANYONE can follow and learn from. It is my story, translated into daily digestible tips that if you use and implement, I’m certain can transform your life too.
