While this book is packed full of potentially life-changing lessons for men & women of all ages, it’s not for everyone. This book is for those who are willing to keep an open mind, as well as think critically, while they read. It’s for those who believe they can change, are willing to change, and can commit to keep trying to change no matter how difficult the path may appear.

Because this book is for those who recognize that anything worth having is worth working for. And it’s for those who understand that long-lasting change takes effort and action, not wishful thinking.

Ultimately, this book is for those who already know — or those who are willing to learn — that the only thing that truly stands between the person they are and the person they want to be is themselves.

If this sounds like you — or like someone you want to be — then this book will likely be well worth your time and investment.


Let me be frank…

If this book has as much of a positive impact on your life as I believe it has the potential to, it is my hope that you’ll find it to be of far more value than the cover price. That is one of my goals in writing this book.

I truly want this book to change your life for the better.

While I can’t claim this book will change your life for the better, I can promise you that if it doesn’t, it isn’t from a lack of effort in trying to write a book that will.

Each piece is written to be as potent as possible. Every sentence, paragraph, and lesson is as concise as I was able to make it given my understanding of the lesson being shared at the time and my current skill in writing it.

Also, this is not a book that you read once, get pumped up about its contents, and then forget about. Lessons Learned from the Path Less Traveled is a book designed to be dipped into repeatedly over time — years, even. And I hope that you will.
