Appreciate your authenticity (honesty) in sharing that.
The vision for the book was to help a young man (now only 13) think about the future.
And to be crystal clear with him that everything is a choice.
And that we are in charge of our choices.
And that our choices have outcomes.
And we are never locked into bad or good choices.
However, we will develop habits.
And to be really, really intentional about which habits we create (and avoid).
Wishing you nothing but the best.
Have read the book 21 times since its been in print.
Each time it is more inspiring, more validating.
