About the Book

This book is simple, informative, and transformative all at once. Williams has once again used his exquisite insightfulness to transcend many of the blockades and excuses often used to avoid taking the responsibility and courage necessary for individuals to first look deeply, earnestly and honestly at “self,” before looking outward at others when seeking to effect lasting and meaningful change. His belief that the first and most significant step to our long journey outward always begins with the first truthful step inward is evident throughout this writing. While each teaching is independent of the ones to follow or precede it, each of them is powerful and highly applicable as a stand-alone self-improvement tool. If growing yourself (and not the entire world) is your objective, then this is the book for you. No one, Williams says, changes the world for the better until he or she first concedes that effective change must begin with self and work outward from there. It is obvious that this book is intended to serve as a self-paced guide and companion along the readers’ growth route, and not merely as a tool of instruction to be read, laid aside, and forgotten.
