About the Book:

Unlocking the Mystery of YouDo you know who the most important person in your life is? Just look in the mirror and you will see – it’s you. Whether you’re a college student, a housewife, a salesman, or the president of the United States of America, the most important person in your life is and will always be you.

That being said, your primary objective in life should be to know who you are so that you can position yourself to succeed in offices aligned with your purpose. After all, your purpose is the collective reasoning behind your existence. As one philosopher puts it, “Purpose is the only real reason you are here, for you exist because your purpose exists. Thus apart from purpose, you have no authentic motivation for living. You may very well exist, but when you’re gone, very few will ever know that you were here.”

Now for some of us discovering our purpose is simple. We understood it long before we ever became adults. For others it is not so easy, and for more reasons than I can gather. This is why the process of personal discovery is so critical; for not only does it allow you to discover your purpose. It also positions you to persistently follow the evolution of your purpose.

This is important because we are all changing every day. Consequently, our purpose will also change contingent to the season of life we are in. Still, in spite of this inevitable change and all the complexities which make understanding your purpose difficult, you will always be able to detect your purpose simply because it is the source of your fulfillment. So if you’re in a job, relationship, or any office which is persistently unfulfilling, odds are it is not aligned with your purpose – and unless you are willing to concede the awesome measures of fulfillment you would experience otherwise, you need to start thinking about making a change so that you can both enhance your life and have profound impacts in the various groups and societies you are in.

“Unlocking the Mystery of You” champions this cause focusing first and foremost on purpose and the crucial role it plays in achieving personal fulfillment and setting the stage for the individual to be a catalyst for group fulfillment. It accomplishes this goal by utilizing a purposeful roadmap designated as the Pinnacle of Purpose. The Pinnacle of Purpose is a progressive path illustrated by 7 ascending levels which, if followed sequentially, not only have the power to transform your life. It will provide you with the greatest measures of fulfillment and success life can offer. All you have to do is follow the crucial, yet simple order of purpose, beginning with confidence and concluding with peace.

So if you’re ready for a change; if you’re ready to stop sleeping on your dreams and your truest passions; if you’re tired of the status quo and living a life which feels incomplete; if you’re tired of wishing your life was better and are now prepared to do something about it; if you’re finally ready to take that ever-difficult leap of faith, then this is a book you must read. Because in this book I show you how to take that leap of faith without falling, for when you leap towards your purpose, you will always land squarely on your feet.

This is true first and foremost because your purpose is what makes you unique to every other individual in the world today, a premise which thoroughly validates the existence of every man and women on the earth. The problem is that many don’t understand their purpose. Once upon a time I didn’t either. That is until I got serious about life. It was then that I realized what purpose is.

It is the collection of all your authentic desires; it is your passion. It is your North Star and your direction; it is your life-long teacher – and above all else, it is that which causes you to press through any form or measure of adversity until you unleash your maximum potential, for it gives you the strength to hold on when you have no strength left within you to hold on.

Would you call yourself a born writer?

A: Yes. You could say that I was born to write. Ever since I was a small child, writing has been my favourite thing to do.

What was your inspiration for “Unlocking the Mystery of You?”

A: I wrote this book because I once was leading a very unfulfilling and unexceptional life. That was in spite of my socioeconomic status. That’s when I began to search for a clear path to turn my life around so that I could experience continued fulfillment while understanding the true meaning of success – and I did. I discovered such a path and have verified its effectiveness and value in my own life. From now I want to share the lessons I have learned with others who, like me, are tired of the persisting states of unhappiness and discontentment, and will stop at nothing to find the fulfillment they are seeking.

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

A: I like to explore themes that I am either interested in or an expert at. The topics which I am an expert at are the ones which I look to publish because they can have an impact in the lives of everyone who reads them. As for the themes which I am interested in, I generally collect notes on them and either write blogs on those topics or save my writings for a future book.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

A: This book took about 6 months to write and 6 months to publish.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

A: I am disciplined and always write at the same time every day; namely in the early hours of the morning. I am also a consultant and career/life coach. So at times I will have appointments which will eat into my writing time. However, I am a creature of habit and rely heavily on my established routine.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

A: The most challenging aspect of writing this book was finding the time to do so with other commitments. I am also an IT consultant and a career/life coach. So maintaining the proper balance to keep each life office moving forward is a persistent challenge.

What do you love most about being an author?

A: I love the fact that my writings have the potential to help others and improve their lives. That is my nature as a teacher and why the majority of my writings are of the self-help/personal development genre. It allows me to combine both my passions for writing and teaching in one activity.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

A: I went with small press. I am happy because it was exactly what I needed at the time, and because I got exactly what I wanted; that is a quality product and a low-hassle process.

Where can we find you on the web?

A: You can find me at www.lifepinnacles.com.
