Adventure to a world experienced by so few!

Have you ever felt the paralyzing anxiety of impending changes in your life caging you within your comfort zone and hindering your progression in the pursuit of happiness? Billy finds himself in a vulnerable position where his future and well-being reside in his trust of others when facing yet another unnerving, life-changing decision.

Within these chapters, you will be shown the internal conflicts and life lessons recognizable by corporate CEOs, professional coaches, and Navy SEALs alike, brought to you from the person who started from ground-zero. A service member who must inspire confidence within himself and others as he is swiftly, and somewhat unwillingly, thrust into managerial roles to serve as an administrator and cogent leader guided by his experience as a naval special warfare candidate.

Those who are veterans will find familiarity and hopefully a new perspective that will benefit you in life and your career. Those who aspire to join the ranks of the world's greatest military will be better prepared by this book for a more prosperous career. Moreover, every reader on God's green earth will take away a new perspective from these pages, forged from a decade of experiences and refined from within military ranks.

Venture with Billy as he endures both the good and the bad, the successes and the failures, during his years enlisted with the Navy. Doing so will surely assist any developing leader in strengthening their own mental fortitude to emerge successful on life's uncertain path.
