Hayden Skaggs was the physical embodiment of a fall out. 80 lbs. overweight, a dead end job, and a shitty attitude culminated to a point that should've ended his military career and set the tone for the rest of his life. One day he woke up and ran out the door, literally. He picked up a book and reading again. Most importantly, he decided that motion was the only thing required for progress, even when this motion was slow and painful. He gave himself permission to keep going when the going got tough. And that is the premise of this book; that to do anything worthwhile, you must only allow yourself to do it. Once the permission is there, the rest will fall into place. Whether you seek to educate yourself, improve your physical abilities, enterprise, or improve your relationships, it all starts with a gift you give to yourself. The allowance.
