Come, take a walk in Joby’s shoes.
Witness a world bound by tradition, controlled by negative self-talk and fear, transform into a life of healing and confidence as he finds his strengths!
Joby thought his life would be different. He thought after paying his penitence in the favelas of Brazil, his life would return to the once promising projection it was on. But it’s not. It’s worse. His mother is dying of cancer, his girlfriend and son need support Joby can’t provide, and an endless flow of menacing thoughts flood his mind, day and night.
Feeling trapped in his joyless life and exhausted from sleepless nights, Joby struggles to resurrect a once promising baseball career as a way out, but his self-diagnosed ADHD and undiagnosed dyslexic brain are sabotaging his efforts and threatening his eligibility. Why can’t he focus? Why are his days so unproductive, no matter how hard he works? Joby’s world feels like one big foggy cloud that he can’t find a way out of.
Until he meets Coach Reid.
A modern day Mr. Miyagi with the flair of Anthony Robbins, Coach Reid gives Joby the tools he needs to tap into his strengths and harness his focus, transforming his grades, anxiety and life circumstances along the way.
Joby – From The Inside is an inspiring journey of self-discovery that shares 8 life transforming tools to achieve health and happiness in one’s inner and outer worlds.
Tools that empower one’s ability to master negative self-talk and unhelpful thinking patterns, crystallize perception, and plunge into life with new energy and confidence!
I fought my undiagnosed ADHD and dyslexic brain for 27 years. In high school I cheated, clowned, and conned my way through my shortcomings. The next decade was a series of starts and stops, struggles and success, self-doubt and reflections of suicide. I averaged an address change every seven months from basic training in Georgia, to when I finished a philosophy degree in Michigan, with stops in Virginia, Idaho, California and Iraq.
I spent the next twenty years refining a patchwork of tools and resources to complement my evolving understanding of my brain and the world around me. Joby’s Toolbox is a glimpse into my personal collection.
Here is the thing to remember; you haven’t evolved to thrive in the world you live in. If you want to live a life that maximizes your personal strengths and promotes optimal health and happiness, you need to be proactive. You need to: identify your weaknesses, cultivate your strengths, and build your toolbox.
Joby – From the Inside, is a gift to my younger self who avoided written expression and public reading. You did this! You wrote this book! It is a gift to my children, third culture kids, and all of you who have wiring or gifts that make you feel like you are on the outside of life looking in. You are not alone. There are more of us, like you, who have been forced to swallow the red pill. Come find us.
Now take a deep breath. Exhale.
You Got This!
