My Life

My life has been one of constant change. My previous work has involved danger, but it wasn’t so dangerous that my whole life could be altered due to one specific event. My upbringing was in no way a disaster, but it did involve elements of chaos that had a significant impact on my future outlook on life. There were times when I visited bad areas of the world and found myself in bad situations. Yet, I don’t have any dramatic stories that Hollywood would want to make into a movie. I have fortunately been able to make a healthy income for most of my life, but it wasn’t so much that money means nothing to me. I have had good relationships and been lucky enough to be around good people. However, I have experienced negative ones too, which have shaped who I am today. I’ve trained with industry leaders and some of the best shooters in the world over the years. But I’ve come to realize that many of them have deep-seated issues. This revealed their human nature, which they attempted to hide from the public eye. I have been completely miserable for years on end but also have had times that could be described as perfect, whatever that means. I have done so many things and had so many interests, and I’m thankful for all of them. This is why I have decided to write this book.


One of the main points of this book, if not the main point, is to be self-aware. In reality, this is simply knowing why you do
what you do to the best of your knowledge. All the things that I listed above and more, I am fully aware of. I take them for what they are. Some things can be considered optimal; some are not. But that’s where it stops. I have no time to go back and forth on how things “should” have been or how they “went.” Things happen as they do, and they led me to this moment. My outlook on life could be considered somewhat open-ended but also straightforward. I believe things are easier than
we make them out to be, and most of what we read, whether it is highly philosophical, spiritual, metaphysical, or even highly technical
like science, is pointing to the same thing. But since we are naturally drawn to drama, emotion can become overwhelming and conceal the true meaning.
