Well, dear Reader, let me tell you something from the get-go.
I am so excited. No seriously, I cannot believe you are here. I wish I could grab your gorgeous face and give you a big, fat kiss – on the cheek of course (come on, we just met). This is set to be a stellar ride. I can feel it. You know that feeling of butterflies in the stomach?
That’s exactly how I feel every time you open this book to read this introduction. Crazy how the fourth wall works, uh?
I am so humbled to have you here with me, and this is why I want to make a promise to you.
I promise you to be 100% honest and transparent with you. Just like we were old time buddies. Somehow though, we already are buddies.
Our paths crossed because both of us know that the key to a happier, more fulfilled life is to be committed to leaving a positive mark on this Earth.
I still remember the time I watched that masterpiece that is Into the Wild (bawling my eyes out for probably a good half of it). I remember the quote “happiness is real, only when it’s shared”. That is it, right there. How can you be happier if the only person you are trying to have an impact on is yourself?
What I did in this book is simple: I started doing what I do best. I asked questions. I investigated. I extrapolated – and got lost in studies and research. This all happened because I asked myself a very simple question – and let’s be honest, that’s exactly how all the best adventures begin.
