What distance are you willing to go to discover the ideal you? Have you ever had a moment of clarity about yourself that changed everything? I did. It was the moment I admitted my life lacked true joy because my daily existence was driven by fear. An over-achieving, controlling perfectionist—I plowed forward toward success each day on auto-pilot. And I was miserable—beyond miserable actually. I was an anxiety-ridden mess. This was not the person I wanted to be. After this awareness, I became willing to go to any lengths to be free from my past ways so that I could discover the real-me hidden behind the exterior I had created. I wanted freedom—especially from the fear-based thoughts and beliefs in my head—so I gave it all up and set off on a journey to discover my ideal self. This search took me on amazing adventures both around the world and closer to home, where I learned lessons about acceptance, helpfulness and love while also battling demons such as selfishness, control, depression and resentment. During these eight years, I become clear about one ultimate truth: The most crucial distance I will ever venture is the twelve inches between my head and my heart. Journey to the Ideal shares entertaining and inspiring true stories filled with laughter, sorrow, fear and happiness which reveal valuable lessons about self-examination and growth. If you hope to escape entrapment from your own fears, this book will give you techniques and resources—wrapped inside heart-felt experiences—which transformed me from a fear-driven head-case into a joyful, balanced person who has a faith-filled heart. Lap I: The World Shows me the Way- Travel to many countries that span the globe to experience the helpful, giving ways of people around the world, as well as tests of faith and gratitude.
