We've been sold a bill of goods. Not out of malice but out of a fundamental misunderstanding of how to effectively approach our lives-and the world-in order to secure the genuine happiness and authentic loving relationships we desire. In Reclaiming the Life We Lost Along the Way, we discover that at the heart of every decision we make is the intention to reduce our suffering and satisfy our unmet yearnings. Authentic love, safety, acceptance, connection, belonging, meaning, purpose, value, appreciation. These are the shared desires of every human being. To meet these desires, we have invested tremendous effort, yet the quality of life we have sought continues to elude us. The reason is shockingly simple: We have attempted to resolve an internal problem with external solutions. The outside world can never satisfy our deepest longings until our inner world makes a critical shift in perception and orientation. When this internal shift occurs, our experience of everything outside of us begins to change as well. This is the key to realizing and experiencing the quality of life we have been seeking for so long. Discover who you really are, recover your true self, bring your unique gifts to life, then share them with the world. This book shows you how to reclaim the life you were born to live by recovering the authentic love and deep fulfillment you came out of the Universe to encounter and extend in your own life and the lives of everyone you touch....

About the Author
It is uncommon to be with someone and to have the pleasure of experiencing parts of oneself mirrored back. Being with John Paterson creates a joy of experiencing yourself as loveable and loving. It is very special. John walks his talk of loving unconditionally. In fact, unconditional love is the essence of his spirituality. To find himself where he is today, John has taken a long and at times arduous journey. The middle child of seven siblings, he became an alcoholic at a very young age. Later, he found new maps that directed his travels into the corporate/consulting world, academic world, family world, and beyond. John earned a Master's degree in Leadership and is currently working in the addiction treatment field. The journey, not the destination, is what John holds sacred.

His life-long passion is discovering how human beings can access and express their deepest and broadest potential. He is also a gifted musician, devoted family man, and a lover of nature. John is reflected in every page of this book....
