When I enlisted in the Unites States Army on November 13th 2012, I was desperate for change. I had enough of making excuses for myself. I had enough of letting down the people I loved, and I had enough of wondering what it would be like to follow my dream to become a soldier. I wasn’t sure the military would be everything I hoped it would be, but what I was sure of was that from that moment forward my life would mean something. I was prepared to give my life for my country, for my family and everyone who hadn’t given up on me when I had given up on myself.
Three and a half years later, I was medically discharged after an injury I sustained to my spine in Slovakia and in the matter of a few months my military career was over. I was devastated. Three back surgeries later, I am in a place where I can reflect on my experience and the important things I have learned. It took me a long time to realize that life truly is the ultimate team sport: you can’t go through it alone. But once I realized this, it was life changing, and this book shares my journey to becoming a man I could be proud of while living a life to make a difference. These reflections are just a fraction of my journey but they come from the deepest depths of my heart and soul, and drastically altered the course of my life.
In this book, I will share with you the true value of self-reflection and understanding. I will take you on my authentic journey from a spoiled rich kid to becoming a United States soldier and share with you all of the incredible people who have helped me along the way. Each chapter of this book shares with you someone who has guided me along my journey. Each chapter shares lessons and reflections that I have carried with me throughout my life.
I hope this book adds inspiration and perspective to the way you live and appreciation for those who have helped you along your journey in life.
