1ST EDITION BACK OF THE BOOK
Your authentic self has been buried. Layer by layer, life has done its work and you can no longer be seen beneath your pain, fear, addiction, anger, apathy. But these things that happened to you, the choices you made or the deeds that shame you, do not have to be you.
This is the excavation of the authentic you, the you that will embrace what life has brought you but not be defined by it.Rather it will become your power. You will learn to move through anger and fear to examine the irrational beliefs that are holding you back. You will discover where your life transitions are leading you, what they are challenging you to do. You will experiment with joy until you experience passion. Then you will learn why passion isn’t enough. In the end, you will reveal your authentic self and when you do, you won’t have to find purpose. Purpose will find you.
The 2nd Edition, a scientific approach to self discovery, change, and life optimization is now on Amazon

"The Killing Fields, Athlete's Depression" Coming Soon!
My new book “The Killing Fields, athletes depression” releases soon!
What is Athletes Depression?
I experienced Athletes Depression for nearly a decade. After all, I am the theoretical mind behind the revelation of Athletes Depression. I believe this should be an actual diagnosis within the Diagnostic Statistic Manual of mental health disorders (the DSM). AD hosts a different etiology as compared to its main misdiagnoses (and most currently related) Bipolar, ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder and even Identity Dissociative Disorders. These are the most popular misdiagnoses related to Athletes Depression.
In short, being raised as a high performance athlete from childhood, and playing only as far as high school or college, especially professional, creates a 50-75% increase in the probability the athlete will experience severe symptomatic mental health issues. The manifestation of Athletes Depression contains a similar and unfortunate common etiology that leads to the popular misdiagnoses. Childhood athlete to adult athlete creates the individual to determine personal value by performance. A form of direct programming meant to develop a resistive consciousness and one who is less likely to ask for help. This naturally creates a cognitive dissonance toward any possibility of “perceived weakness”. In this sense I am categorizing the existing social stigma surrounding mental health. Meaning most athletes do not seek mental health help and choose to fight it on their own. Combined with the lengthy exposure to hyper vigilant environments and situations being linked to highly rewarding states, this begins to condition the body and mind to need, continue seek, and in many cases, cause the individual to consciously or unconsciously create hyper-vigilant environments and situations to return the body and mind to these rewarding states. Many times this manifests in very high risk situations, people and behavior. The bigger risk the better. A cycle begins to emerge. The hardworking, non fearing, non “weak” athlete fights for varying lengths and “wins”. It may even appear as if they are overworking, working perpetually or appear manic. Eventually the individual will “lose” for various reasons (lengthy explanation), generally based in emotional choices and reactions. This sets in a “we lost” mindset that can last weeks, months or even years. Due to value of self being taught to be measured in performance (behaviorally, cognitively and socially), depression and severe self judgement begins and can last lengthy periods of time. The vigilance to which the individual fights the depression many times begins with the first misdiagnosis of ADHD. This overtime combines with severe depressive episodes, and other symptomatic issues begin to emerge; addiction, violence and intense anger. Feelings and thoughts as far as self harm repeat. At first, second or even third assessment, overtime the criterium appears as if the Bipolar diagnosis is present. In reality the athlete is, has been and will continue to cycle this way due to “Athletes Depression”, NOT bipolar disorder and or ADHD. The manifestation and etiology of Athletes Depression has gone undetected and has indirectly caused countless misdiagnosis to spin athletes, and especially x athletes lives seemingly out of control. Leaving the individual with thoughts and feelings their mental health struggles are different than any therapist, and especially any partner, family member or boss can understand. The Athletes are left on the killing fields alone and depressed. Lost.

Lotsa wisdom, thought provoking and changes my mind completely on how I should be looking at life and my goals. Unlike any other self help books , this actually works! This book worth more than its price.Noor aishah
This is a must read for anyone who values what it means to just be. Outstanding reality check!!LEO J DANNIBALLE JR
The strength of this book is that besides being a great story and a quick read, it delivers a life philosophy that is disgustingly brilliant. Step by step, the author provides three tools to build your life plan and establish a healthy core routine. Definitely will be putting it on my bookshelf.Richard Feenstra, Ph.D.
What this man brings is a new and encouraging thought process. His thoughts and words are up-lifting. I don’t think I would classify this as a self-help book, it’s too thought provoking for that. But it’s definitely a great resource to help get your head in position to succeed. Definitely worth a read.JB Shiver
