From the #1 award-winning author of Be a Change Agent

Using the terrifying real-life example of driving through foggy weather on a highway as a platform, Dr. Dele Ola teaches us that the true definition of blindness is lack of insight, perception, or judgment. Many people go through life working hard but never seeing results because they don't see clearly. They go through life as if they're driving through the fog or wearing a blindfold.

This is why abuse of authority in corporations and politics exists. This is why society doesn't function optimally, why there is dysfunctional leadership at all levels, and why many people fail in their personal and professional lives.

What we see is a function of our eyesight; how we see is a function of our insight. We must acquire clear-sightedness to succeed. Successful people leave a mark, experience personal fulfillment, and change the world because they see through their insight rather than their eyesight. The mind sees much more, and much farther, than the eyes can. You can see the world clearly through your mind without eyesight, but you cannot see clearly without insight.

Captivating stories and personal anecdotes illustrate the central theme: we need to remove the barriers to clear-sightedness, the dense fog that beclouds understanding and prevents people from leading effectively, running successful businesses, accomplishing great things, reaching personal goals, and fulfilling personal visions.

Dr. Ola himself strives to always live the principles presented in this book. He cites several examples from his own life and the lives of others throughout. Given his firm belief that one of the worst flaws anyone can have is to possess physical sight but lack insight and be unable to see the world clearly through the lens of sound principles, Dr. Ola passionately shares how to see clearly with insight for the betterment of ourselves and our world.
