Change Does Not Occur in A Flash
About the Book
We all need transformations at different points in our lives to reach our full potential. My mission in this book is to illuminate your path to reach lasting change. I want to inspire you and to transform your life for the rest of your life. Most people are scared of being uncomfortable during the transition from our routines to new opportunities. I call this the in-between time. If you can get past this in-between time, you can accomplish change successfully. I want you to finish this and be a better person forever. This book is about giving you the tools—and a road map—to make life transformations. In doing so, I reflect back on the changes that have propelled me in my life. They carried me from the streets of New Jersey to a championship football experience, two degrees at Notre Dame, a law degree in Kentucky, and then to my current role as CEO of the Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center in Richmond, Indiana. The common denominators to those transformations are numerous: determination, sacrifice, and support. Spirituality is at the forefront of them all.
