This is a book about choosing a positive self-image of confidence, assurance, and true humility. This study represents hard work for you if you choose to embrace what you read.
In these pages you will observe challenging human behaviors, and learn why a low or self-effacing self-image is, or can be, detrimental to you and everyone within your network—family, friends, professional associations (at work, for example)—indeed, everyone with whom you have association, including those who influence you and those over whom you exert influence.
You will also see examples of negative effects of blatant arrogance. Arrogance and self-confidence are absolutely not the same. Both are choices.
Arrogance, bullying, and intimidation are often born of severe insecurity. In contrast, self-confidence and assurance, accompanied by authentic humility, emerge from growing personal contentment and a commitment to improve. When you improve you are in a better position to help others who truly want to grow.
A relevant journey of self-analysis and a choice for self-improvement are not options everyone or perhaps even most people choose to take. In fact, some feel truly threatened by learning their core issues, and may express high trepidation when shown opportunities for positive change. Ultimately, you alone consider advancing your character and changing your behaviors if you agree.
These principles, born in truth and conveyed from a desire to help achieve maximum positive results, can become part and parcel of your core makeup if you desire, and work from, a foundation of self-love. Upon that foundation, success in its purest form is or can be built.
The more explicit you are in defining what you want for yourself and why, the more prepared you become to achieve what you truly desire, especially if your heart is in the right place, you possess right motives, your actions corroborate your motives, and you act according to higher law.
This book is written for those who are deemed healthy emotionally and intellectually. It is designed to offer someone who has the capability of reception and the desires to improve, solid alternatives to learned, practiced, and chosen habits that are defective and self-destructive.
This book is offered to help you truly believe and achieve the best about yourself because you are worth it.

About the Author
I enjoy traveling, especially to Gettysburg, Washington, D.C., Europe, and the Middle East. I treasure multi-cultural experiences and am fulfilled when conducting conference center presentations and speaking engagements. Enjoyments in life include walking, bicycle riding, and being with family and close friends; also a fireplace, my dogs, listening to classical music and profound artistic works. I appreciate, compose, and arrange multiple styles of music. I earnestly engage in creatively stimulating conversations on uplifting topics, listening and responding to other people's well-thought-out perspectives. I love to laugh. I thoroughly enjoy good football and baseball games. I am a student and teacher, a follower and leader.
Further, "I acknowledge that I have a long way to go in learning what life is all about. I acknowledge that I am willing to work hard to achieve what I believe I am called to do. I also willingly and joyfully acknowledge dependence on God."
