Writing this book is quite possibly the most selfish thing I have ever done.
After living the first 30 years of my life as a prisoner of circumstance - blaming everyone and everything around me for my hopelessness, my anger, my stress and even my obesity; waiting to finally get a "break" and confidently proclaiming that my victim personality was permanent and " just the way I am" (I'm sure none of you reading this can relate) - I finally discovered the simple and powerful distinction that helped me transition from a helpless, exhausted, overwhelmed, and overcommitted prisoner to a creative, conscious, and courageous self-leader.
While it's true that as a speaker, trainer, and coach, I could tell you I wrote Prison Break because I was so passionate about sharing with you what I know has been the most pivotal piece of my personal transformation, it's only half of the self-serving story.
I also wrote it because it is the book I needed to read (and will no doubt refer to for the rest of my life for a gentle reminder...or 40) to help me see through the lies, myths, and fundamental misunderstandings I held for so long about how the world worked. (Spoiler: It never seemed to "work" for me until I developed this new understanding; these new tools.)
What you will find in this book is not an instruction manual but rather a destruction manual - breaking down the self-imposed walls and barriers that I worked so tirelessly to erect over the first few decades of my life and that I have seen affect so many of the thousands of people I have met, trained, and coached.
