Where This Roadmap Came From
I was 31 when I woke up. I remember it vividly. I looked in the mirror like I had been asleep in the car and someone else had driven us into a ditch. I did not like where things were going physically or financially, or career-wise and I felt like there was something really important that I was completely clueless about. I wanted to take the journey that so many others had taken – the journey of self-development and self-understanding towards a more fulfilling life. This journey has taken more than a decade of walking through some of the worst and best times in my life. What I wish I had back then, was a roadmap. I wish I had something to guide me on what to do first, and what to do next, and the next step after that, etc. If I had been handed a roadmap to self-development back then, I might have gotten to this point a LOT sooner and with a lot less pain. Perhaps twelve years could have been more like one or two and many mistakes and wasted effort could have been avoided. If I had a roadmap, I might have been able to get quickly to my purpose, and a life of peace and joy. So this roadmap is for you. May it guide you on your journey and speed you to where you want to be, wherever that is.
This roadmap is the result of aggregating the research and writings of more than fifty scholars, researchers, authors, speakers, and thought leaders over that twelve year period. It stands on the shoulders of giants to distill their findings and influence into a single coherent roadmap that accelerates your self-understanding. It is a process and a practice for keeping you in the beautiful states of your choosing through complete connection to yourself and every aspect of your life.
How To Use This Book
This book is a roadmap for self-understanding through complete connection. It guides you through eleven stages, each with tasks, recommended resources and questions to spark your thinking. Work through each task starting from Stage One. When you complete the roadmap, you can read parts of it again and repeat exercises to help keep you in the stages you want experience most.
