In The War on Success, published by Regnery, I address the cultural, political, and spiritual challenges currently facing our nation. As an advisor and coach to more than a thousand entrepreneurs and their families, I’ve observed that when we stray from timeless principles, trouble and adversity are never far behind.There are unwavering principles that preside over each area of our lives as well as principles that govern our lives as a whole. When we attempt to bend, stretch, or otherwise pervert these principles, we set ourselves up for pain and regret. History’s most successful individuals have resisted the natural human tendency to make up their own little “pet laws” of life and then rationalize their disillusionment when the inevitable fallout materializes. And as a nation, the further we’ve moved away from our founding principles, the bigger the mess we’ve gotten into.I never aspired to write a political book. But…the onset of the war against success deeply affected me, since I have dedicated my life to the truths that our success blesses others and Success Is Not an Accident, as I titled my first book. The war on success struck me as a repudiation of the American Dream, and a denigration of individual responsibility, hard work, service and creativity.
As I talked over these ideas, numerous friends and clients urged me to write a book defending free enterprise and the merit-based society. Others, however, warned me of the risks of alienating or offending people with my blunt observations and unambiguous convictions. I decided to take the risk of writing this book. In fact, after considering the sheer magnitude of the threat we face, I felt called to develop this manuscript. I believe you and your family, especially your teenage children will be challenged and blessed by the principles and concepts discussed throughout the pages of The War on Success.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
President Ronald Reagan
For two decades, I have devoted my life to figuring out what separates the successful from the unsuccessful, the winners from the losers. After working with more than a thousand entrepreneurs and their families in over thirty industries, I have come to understand how valuable these individuals are to this country.
In The War on Success, I aim to burst the bubble of complexity and reveal the simplicity and certainty of time-tested principles and how they relate to what is happening in America today. In doing this, I run the risk of criticism from the sophisticated intellectuals in politics, academia, and the media who reflexively scoff at such commonsense observations and solutions. The reader should note, however, that it’s these “deep thinkers” who have led us into the economic and cultural muck through which we are now trudging. Please enjoy and share!
