RIGHT NOW, in this moment, are you living with purpose, clarity, and focus? Do you have a suspicion in the back of your mind that you may not be living your very best life? It is so easy to lose touch with our love of life—to get lulled into a state of semi-consciousness by our daily routines—to lose perspective and forget the reason why we get up in the morning—to drift into autopilot mode where we are mindlessly going through our day instead of living with purpose and clarity.

HAPPINESS & HEROISM is a two-book series consisting of two letters from a father to his children that impart lessons on loving life and walking a noble path. The first book, The School of Being, teaches the philosophy of the fundamental goodness of existence; mindfulness of true reality; humanity’s innate tendencies to feel stress, fear, anger, boredom, and depression—and the antidote. The second book in the series, The School of Doing (not yet released), teaches how and why to choose one’s actions with purpose, using principles that can be continually refined as wisdom is gained throughout one’s lifetime.

The lessons contained in Happiness & Heroism have been of value to busy professionals, parents, teens, and those who desire more purpose, mindfulness, and positivity in their life.  Happiness & Heroism is available in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook narrated by the author himself.
Sage wisdom and step-by-step instructions for a fulfilling life. I finally feel that I am on the right path.
