In the prologue to Chapter One in the book, the last sentence asks this question: And what of the future? Where am I going, and what’s my ultimate objective?
The answer to that question is what this website is all about.
It’a about - ‘Your mind is like a parachute….It only works when it’s open’
What of the future?…..An absolute treasure trove of information across all aspects of every chapter, and then some. The very latest in scientific research across the brain, the mind, the gut, and PTSD. It will come from some of the greatest brains and minds on the planet.
It will be in the form of interviews, updates from all kinds of sources, both found, and from others making contact to make a contribution to helping others. It will be from researchers who know of the journey, and the objectives of the book and the website, to make a difference in the lives of others.
Where am I going?…..As a ‘work in progress,’ I’m going down the same path as everyone who reads the book, then makes a decision to take control of PTSD, including those that don’t have, or don’t think they have any of the symptoms, but who do want a “Life Plan.”
People who implement it to live the life of their dreams and aspirations. To be in control of PTSD. To live a life of purpose and passion, to make a difference, to live a life that matters.
What’s my ultimate objective?…..To do whatever it takes to stem the tide of suicide and family breakup in the military community of serving mean and women, and veterans.
The issue of PTSD. How recognising it and its symptoms, and asking for help is the best decision. The why and the how of doing so anonymously, to eliminate the potential of stigma, or career threat, even if you’ve transitioned out of the military. To NOT tell those who don’t have a need to know.
How to take back control. Tools, techniques and strategies to remain in control. If you are married, or have a partner and children, why you must involve those who you love, and are nearest and dearest to you. The synergistic benefit of doing this together. 2+2 = more than 4…..It’s 5,6,7, and even more!
Then the 5 Step Life Plan, and the 7 Pillars To Success. Life’s total picture. A complete roadmap and strategy to get to wherever it is you want to end up in life.
As you reflect back on your life, to be able to say you’ve achieved everything you wanted. You are truly fulfilled. You are content and happy. You’ve ticked everything off on your ‘Bucket List.’ You’ve made a difference. You’ve lived a life that truly matters.
Where we can all say, ‘Me too.’ That’s what this is about.
The book will give you a complete roadmap to take back control of life by showing you how to conquer PTSD so it no longer controls your life, to then implement the 5 Step Life Plan with the 7 Pillars to Success.
When you do this, no matter what your current circumstance, you will be able to live the life you want for you and your loved ones. One of fulfillment, true happiness, success in the truest sense of the word, to live the life of your dreams and aspirations, whatever that might be for you.
