Have you ever had a dream, bigger than yourself? Have you ever wanted to be a superhero? Change the world?
I know I have.
I wanted to fight evil, ease suffering and make the world a better place. I wanted to fill hearts with joy. I wanted to make a difference. But I never really did anything about one particular dream I had, until now.
For a long time I didn’t understand what John C. Maxwell said:
Dreams don’t work unless you do.
This dream I had, was writing a book. A book that turns ordinary people like you and me into superheroes.
Let me explain.
Over the years, I’ve come to realise that one of the biggest evils that I and many people face is the lack of self-confidence and the greatest suffering is probably low self-worth.
Looking at this I realised that we all need a personal superhero. Someone who believes in us unconditionally, even when we are too broken to believe in ourselves. Someone who sees the beauty in us so clearly that we see it too. Someone who celebrates our uniqueness. Someone who remains the steadfast rock by our side even when we’re overcome by waves of doubt. We all need a superhero who encourages and inspires us to keep going, to do great works and to create amazing lives for ourselves and others. To change the world.
That is why I’ve written Fading Darkness. It is a story about superheroes, about evil powers, about a dystopian universe populated by fear and hope (and one really cute girl). It’s about raging battles and death and glory. It’s about sacrifice and love. And most importantly, it’s about you.
That’s right. If you don’t believe me, read it. 😁
You see, I have a vision. I want to inspire people to believe again; in themselves and others, to have courage and confidence, to go after what they dream about, and to show by example that everything is possible – the impossible just takes a little longer. I believe that everyone can be a superhero. I believe we CAN change the world, if we choose to take responsibility for ourselves and each other. My dream is to make that world happen. And my request is for you to be my superhero, as I will be yours.
Our time on earth is brief, and it’s not too late to be there for someone, to love, support and inspire him or her. That is why I started doing what I do; be it coaching or consulting, and that is why this book exists.
Through this book, I will remind you of the value, power and magnificence within you. I will heighten your awareness of your own uniqueness and strength. And, of course, I will tell you a great story that will rock your socks off!
We may be best friends or strangers, you may believe me or you may not, but through this book, I will show you that this world is a wonderful one, because of you. Always remember that the world is essentially a beautiful place, once we allow ourselves to love, and to look for the beauty and goodness in people.
We can all be superheroes. We can all change the world.
I love you all.
Thanks for reading.
