We are closing in on victory. Only a few steps more to knowing exactly how to Conquer your Dreams. This one is the attribute shared by every great achiever I have ever met and you have ever seen on the cover of SUCCESS. THIS is what you need to ultimately succeed:
Continuing our mentoring session on how to (finally, this time!) CONQUER your dreams. WARNING! You’re not gonna like this one. You thought there was a shortcut, cliff notes or some “secret” that allowed you to just chant, rub crystals or sit on your couch and rubber cement pictures onto your vision board as the way to achieve your dreams. Uhhh, nope. THIS is what it takes, everytime, no matter what:
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday yesterday, filled with the gift of love and having those dearest to you celebrate along side. Yesterday, another gift also arrived, the release of the movie Unbroken. I am often asked who was my favorite interview of all time. And to this day it still stands as Louis Zamperini.

Either you’ve created the outcomes in your life by what you’ve done, or you’ve caused them by what you haven’t done. And even if something has happened to you, you are still responsible for how you respond to what’s done to you. Every aspect of your life is a mirror reflection of who you are. Your relationships mirror you. Your health, it mirrors you. Your bank account, it mirrors you.
My interest is peaked. I will have to check this book out. Thanks for the review Christopher!
When I first heard about Left of Bang, I initially thought it would be a rerun of The Gift of Fear and What Every Body Is Saying with a hint of On Killing/On Combat mixed in.

Patrick Van Horne and Jason Riley have joined the ranks of Gavin De Becker, Rory Miller, Dave Grossman and Joe Navarro, if not surpassed them, with their book Left of Bang. Although Left of Bang incorporates ideas and concepts from the previously mentioned authors and books, Riley and Van Horne really dug into the details of situational awareness and body language to provide us with a comprehensive guide in understanding our environments, our gut feelings and how to respond to the “anomalies” we observe.

In The Compound Effect, I told the story of how I found my dream home. I was sitting on the dock at Sam’s Anchor Café looking up at the mega houses that cantilevered over the tip of Tiburon, in Marin County, California—just across the bay from San Francisco. It’s an exciting thing, putting the last few signatures on the pages that make your dream home your actual home. Yet even as they handed over the keys, I wasn’t thinking about what a monumental moment it was for me. I wasn’t filled with excitement at the thought of moving in or waking up that first morning in my new place or even how awesome it would be to show my friends. As I left the title company that afternoon, there was one thought and one thought only in my mind…

The dream in your heart may be bigger than the environment in which you find yourself. Sometimes you have to get out of that environment to see that dream fulfilled. It’s like planting an oak sapling in a pot. Once it becomes root bound, its growth is limited. It needs a great space to become a mighty oak. So do you.
