This book will open your eyes to see the solutions that are hidden right in front of you.

What inspired me to write this book:  Curiosity.  I wanted to know why it is that 10 people can be looking at the same pile of trash and only one of them see treasure. 

We’ve all heard rags to riches stories ad nauseum.  In fact, we’ve heard so many of them that unless they involve sex or violence they bore us.  They bore us because they only give us surface level details. 

They tell us the who, the what, the where, and the when.  But none of them tell us the why.  Why at the neurological level. Why at the psychological level.  I went on a seven year long journey to find the answers to why.  And the answers are in this book. 

The award you have honored me with is the seventh award the book has received. 

What is the main reason someone should read this book?  It will open the eye of your brain to see solutions that were there all along, but you could simply not see before.
