I am currently engrossed in the process of writing my first book. I have been regularly asked what the book is about. So I want to tell you a few things about it.
The book is a personal story about the bigger questions of life. Over the past 50 years, I have lived through times that 'were a changing'. The story I have to tell is about what I have learned that is valuable and useful to all of us.
As a college student and athlete in the 60's I was living my dream. At the peak of the US military involvement in Vietnam, I was drafted. Perhaps surprisingly, this is when I woke up to the power of the mind. For me, this started a journey of awakening that continues to this day.
So the story goes something like this: As an athlete, I learned that the mind controls the body. As a soldier, I learned to change my thinking to survive. As an African American radical, I learned to speak my mind. As a monk, I learned to live not as a warrior athlete or soldier or radical, but as a peaceful servant of the inner Self. As a husband and father, I learned to consciously balance the challenges and priorities; as a business owner and corporate consultant and coach, I have integrated and learned to share this practical wisdom within the 'Living and Leading Consciously" model. This process enables leaders, teams, and individuals to develop into high performing individuals and organizations.
"Whether you are a student trying to keep hold of your dreams and find purpose in your life; an athlete shooting for the big league; an activist wanting to change the world; an army veteran longing for peace and reintegration; a householder balancing priorities between family and self; an executive or politician wanting to do the best possible job leading others; or a spiritual seeker wanting answers to the big questions of life.
The book outlines how to embrace the transformation that beckons us to live consciously, find our life purpose, learn to 'dance with our dragons' and be the best we can be.
In the next few weeks, I will be sharing some excerpts from the book.
I welcome your comments and questions and encourage you to contact me and put your name on the online mailing list, so that I will be able to keep you informed of the latest developments.
