OK! Here's the bottom line; contained within these covers I share what took me a great deal of time, aggravation, heartache and a good deal of money to find ways to make the challenges easier and the results more effective.......the hard way.  While accomplishing all this, I was dealing with some serious personal adversity thrown into the mix.

Learning from my mistakes, experiences, principles and methods to overcome a multitude of physical and mental challenges, I've learned we will derive the results we are looking for; whether they are positive or negative.  In addition, the hardest most ruthless battles on earth occur within the seven inches between our ears. That is where the war is won or lost.

My hope is that you may discover examples and methods to design a life instead of simply making a living, if this is your goal. This worked for me by dealing with adversity through learning to evaluate, adapt, and overcome. Why? Because I now look at life as if there are no problems, only challenges. I am guided by some key principles including, Set no limits and accept no limits, Do or do not. There is no try. ~ Yoda. We are all limited only by our imaginations and by not allowing others permission to determine limits on our lives.  I admit, a simple concept to discuss but not easy to accomplish.

From the Publisher:

TOTALLY DISABLED FIRST TIME WRITER SHARES HIS LESSONS TO COPE WITH LIFE'S CHALLENGES THROUGH PERSONAL AND HUMOROUS EXPERIENCES

You know how you see some of the most successful and happy people are dealing with the most unbelievable challenges and adversities working against them? Then you find yourself asking, "If this guy is successful, happy and fulfilled dealing with his challenges, how does he do it?"

Craig Mattice penned a "slap-you-in-the-face and wake up" inspiring book titled, Evaluate, Adapt, And Overcome: Accept No Limits In Life, making you ask, "What is his secret of coping with so many adversities, yet he is enjoying life to the fullest?" Craig recounts his story of coming to terms with total disability and outlines specific advice that helped him along the way. He is a survivor going from highly physically fit as prior law enforcement, specialty trained military and long distance runner, to dealing with doctors for almost 11 years before receiving a definitive, yet terminal diagnosis. He is also a survivor of a near-fatal brain stem stroke, yet he has continued to design his life by dealing with adversity through learning to evaluate, adapt and overcome.

Craig has coined a personal motto of Living Life on My Terms, No Excuses No Regrets. He has Para-sailed over 1,000 feet high, bungee jumped from a 140 foot tower by his ankles and even scaled the top final two tenths of a mile of a 10,000 foot mountain volcano in Hawaii using crutches, all since becoming disabled.

Discover examples and methods to design a life instead of simply making a living, if this is your goal. This worked for Craig by dealing with the adversity of total disability, through learning to evaluate, adapt, and overcome. Why? Because he now looks at life as if there are no problems only challenges. We are all limited only by our imagination and by not allowing others permission to determine limits on our lives.

This book is actually making a difference in people's lives who read it and get the messages contain within the covers. The responses to his book have been unbelievable judging by the comments received such as, "I couldn't wait [to get the book] and then I couldn't put it down!" "I am reading your book for the second time! The frustration I am feeling with the medical community is growing everyday.....is it seizures? MS? Parkinson's? None of the above? All of the above? Your book HAS really helped me.""I LOVE your book! Don't think I've ever read anything that quoted Yoda!" "I just about spewed my Lucky Charms all over my keyboard as I was reading your `Sharing My Final Wishes' section of your book." "Excellent words, Craig! ...... - And by the way - I am loving your book! [I] Had a hard time putting it down!" "My mother and I have read your book and believe me it had a very deep impact on us. We were unaware of all of the "fun" you were having during your doctor evaluation period." Finally, "I was laughing so hard while reading your book on the beach, the people next to me asked me to quiet down."

He generously shares his knowledge and experiences with others through his blog, on forums, the Internet and now writing this motivating book. Craig demonstrates we have the power to control our response to adversity. His time is short, but that has not stopped Craig from Living Life on His Terms. Admittedly, this is a simple concept to discuss but not easy to accomplish.

From the Author:


Direct insights I discovered during my journey, from which you may now benefit. Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. ~ Dr. Maxwell Maltz. We must take advantage of life and all that it offers each of us by being attentive to our surroundings and human interactions.

So, how do we start to go about this life changing transformation? You don't have to wait until something life changing happens to you, as in my case. Simply start today, right now, and do as Mother Teresa prescribes, Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.

Finally, a key principle of personal development and self-improvement, which must be realized and understood from the beginning of your journey. Whatever we are waiting for--peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance--it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. Sarah Ban-Breathnach. To accomplish all of the above is really very simple.........but not easy. All good things in our lives require work and sacrifice to be won and appreciated. Just do not wait too long to take this journey.
