My story is chock full of road trips.
And if I’m to help you with yours then it’s only right that you know mine.
I like to travel. Sometimes in the world, sometimes within my own mind. I get excited heading somewhere new.
But my story has taken me down some highways I wish I’d never discovered
Goes with the job description.
Some of these roads took me to the Dark Side and back. And I chose wrongly a lot of times when I had the room to choose otherwise.
War was waged. Battles were won and lost. I barely survived my choices.
The journey through it all changed me in almost every way
What it turned me into – someone who can tell a story and use it for greater good – is why you’re here now.
Welcome to my head.
Build A Better Life For Yourself
Become a better you to lead the life you deserve
This is the system that I invented to save myself after being told I had six more months to live.
Know what you’re going to do, no matter what
You can’t change how you’ll act. Only fight it or use it. Guess which one leads to true strength?
Find your people
Draw your people to you. Don’t chase them. And become strong enough to be OK with the process.
The Warrior Hippy
I found out that I am a DaVinci personality. If you’re reading my blog and returning, maybe you are too. So, what is that? Well, it’s a blessing and a curse. We are the Restless Ones.
I am a Marine even though my honorable discharge took place back in ’91. We are the only branch that refers to ourselves in the present tense, regardless of duty status.
You’d Be Surprised At What You Can Overcome
I beat it–without drugs
I had no choice. The meds were only killing me and making the disease worse.
Bipolar looks bad on the outside. But you’d never guess the enormity of its wrongness when seen from the inside. I am not 100% sure how I beat it. But I did.
Shedding Light On The Journey
I wanted to make clear all that I’d survived, now that I had some sanity and perspective, and piece together how I got there.
Making your dreams come true is all about surviving what life throws in your way to keep you from hitting the big time. That’s one way of looking at it.
Develop Your Mental And Physical Wisdom
Your mental and physical traumas are fuel for growth
When your brain and your body hear one another, your story becomes whatever it must.
I’ve been taught many critical lessons by the mentors on this page. Some were family and some were friends. Some were business partners and some were joint venture partners.
The wisest among us know they need to find someone wiser than them to continue to grow. You should always be placing yourself in the path of others above you.
Take Command Of Your Future
Success can be many things to many people. For me it means living my life in a way that lets me do what I do best under my terms.
The strength gained by taking ownership of all that is right and all that is wrong in your life, cannot be valued highly enough.
Then This Happened…
This is the journey I survived (up to 2006) that burned down the “Old Ken” allowing the “New Ken” to emerge.
It’s an often harsh story written in the harsh language of its time. (Marine, remember?)
Some find it an offensive, F-bomb packed horror, loaded with so much pain that it’s hard to finish.
Others read it in one shot, laughing all the way through. For the same reasons.
And many also find peace, inspiration, and hope within its pages.
Depends on where you’re at.
But my system makes up the entire second half and is exactly what I did to put bipolar behind me. (And to see it for what it truly was.) Find it on Amazon.
