Take control of your life and do something amazing
Take control of your life
A broken home
I grew up in a very broken home. Broken in almost every sense of the word.
My biological father suffered from schizophrenia. He thought he was intended to be the next prophet, that he was going to heal the world. To prove his worthiness, he had been commanded to sacrifice me.
My mother struggled to provide. An entertainer, she sung at whatever bars or events she could get gigs at. But we seldom had enough.
We were sometimes homeless, living in a tent; or sometimes in a hotel room as my mom worked as a maid; or sometimes in a little trailer, without running water, electricity, heat, or a means to cook. We often had little or no food, and I sometimes stole to fill my stomach, or ate crawdads I found at the lake.
By the time I was 11, they both had left me.
This was a very difficult time for me. I spent many nights sobbing into my pillow, begging God to bring me back my mom.
Instead what he gave me was something else… strength.
He taught me that man was strong. That we could endure and overcome. That we had the ability to take control of our lives, break the chains of our past, and become great.
I began to focus my life on learning how to control it. Not for me, but so that with confidence and authority, I could help others. Help them escape their past, take control of their lives, and be amazing.
A journey of discovery
I studied neuropsychology and behavioral psychology in college, and spent all the spare time I could spare studying other sciences and disciplines wherein man took control. I realized what I was really studying, was the art of engineering. Human performance engineering. Life engineering.
I began to synthesize principles across fields and disciplines. Drawing heavily from cognitive and behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, physics, even chemistry.
Having spent 15 years in business, as an executive over product management and product marketing, I also drew from these disciplines, studying their frameworks, methodologies, and best practices.
I came to appreciate the universal nature of a true principle. That physical laws have spiritual shadows.
It was then that I set about formalizing those principles into a framework for life, called Escape Velocity, a knowledge-base of principles, and a set of life tools and diagnostics… all designed to help you take control of your.
That’s Life Engineering.
It’s taken me the better part of 39 years to do this. And now I’m finally ready to publish my work, and raise my voice in support of strength that lies within you.
Join me in this journey of life engineering.
