Nearly all Baby Boomers want to change but don’t want it badly enough. They are way too comfortable.

Midlife renaissance is a moment of truth. A literal once in a lifetime opportunity to climb out of our deeply ingrained, unintentional midlife rut.

Humanity is oblivious.

And we discriminate against this once-in-a-lifetime invitation to change our attitude.


Excuses. Comfort. Fear. Doubt.


Everyday people openly share their reality as they go about their day to day. They talk about feeling this, struggling with this, and wanting to overcome it.

But only one in 100 buys this book.

The herd is massive and includes almost all of us.

The herd is mediocrity.

The movement is drive and determination.

To live like you mean it.

To slay excuses and regrets. For good.

We are in charge of this. Period.

No one has to do this, but imagine the consequences of either choice

Love spelled with jungle letters
Love and hate are choices we get to make. Seems obvious. This is not a casual decision.


The ripple effects of our positive actions have no known end.

Rejoice in knowing that good cannot be stopped.

And positive thoughts always trump negative thoughts.

Knowing this is not enough.

We must create ripples, not wish for them.

Well, no one has to do this, but imagine the consequences of either choice.
