You are a hero.
You work your tail off every day, put the needs of others ahead of your own, find the highs and fight the lows between each paycheck, do the “other duties as assigned,” put up with the aches and pains and setbacks to make the big sale or deadline or building or deal.
Paparazzi and press don’t mob you at your front door at the end of your day, but your biggest fans do, ready to hug away your cares and heal the hurts caused by your daily war with the world.
Your work – with all its challenges, frustrations, and victories – matters.
Your life – with all its stress, complexities, and joy – is precious.
What you do, and who you are, changes the world, one person at a time.
And you are the reason I wrote Heroes, Villains, and Drunk Old Men: A Love Story for Real Life, coming in fall of 2017.
Our culture idolizes the famous, the rich and the successful. What if you were meant to live another story…a better story? That is what Heroes, Villains, and Drunk Old Men will inspire you to do. –Justin Davis // Author, Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough
This book shares the best of everything I’ve learned in the past 25 years about how to bring out the best in people.
It uses humanity’s most powerful storytelling model to help you continue your heroic journey at work and home, and avoid becoming the villain in your story.
I’ve packed it with powerful tools and practical advice, including:
- The three-word mindset behind every successful relationship,
- How to defeat a crucial psychological blind spot and fight the right fight, for the right reasons,
- A set of simple questions that transform failure into success, create a community of heroes, and drive out a destructive talent development strategy inspired by a certain Oscar-winning actress,
- Beating burnout with the best piece of photography gear you’ve never heard of, and the strange story of the high-diving angel, and
- Overcoming the fatal one-word flaw at the heart of every villain.
I’ll share the best pictures I’ve ever taken to introduce you to inspiring real-life heroes, including a rag-tag group of formerly drunk old men, who have used these techniques to serve and save their corner of the world…even when all hope seemed lost.
And you’ll meet the one true hero who will make your journey worth every step.
Heroes, Villains, and Drunk Old Men is genuine, moving, funny, challenging, and deep. It’s a beautiful reminder reminder that when we step outside our own egos, and begin to truly listen to others, miracles of connection can occur. –Anne Ryder // Emmy-award winning journalist and member of the Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame
