Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option on Amazon Kindle’s Bestseller List


Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option is still on Amazon Kindle’s best seller list. This book is very close to my heart for many reasons. One this is about my brother Stan who is challenged and was never supposed to succeed, second this book took me 34 years to publish. I was rejected so many times that I lost count. I finally decided that I was in charge of my own destiny. I have never looked back. Third this book is the reason I say I am successful contrary to the naysayers and the ones who are jealous because they refuse to live their dream.

Stan is my yardstick. He has done things that he was never supposed to do. He has never given up and he keeps on getting up when he is knocked down. This man has touched so many lives it amazes me. He has spent 15 years at Publix Grocery store and just received his evaluation he received the highest he could receive – which was 168 points-

So when I hear someone say they can’t or they can’t find a job or they want to just draw a check I want to smack them. One time I asked Stan if he wanted to draw SSI which he qualified for his comment was “No, I don’t want to live off the government, I will make my own money.” This was a man who was not supposed to be able to reason- and yet he has excellent reasoning skills.

So if this man who has brain damage understands there is no pride in living off the government that pride comes in hard work and honest work why can’t others? The answer is simple- he understands that nothing is free. He understands that in order to have pride and a sense of success one must work no matter the job- if it janitorial- digging ditches – washing dishes or whatever it takes to earn a living even if one has to work two jobs which he has done. He also understands that when one lives off someone else be it the government or someone else they own you. They determine your future and your present. They tell you what to do and how to do it.

If Stan who is brain damaged understands this why don’t those who are “normal” get it? The reason is simple- they choose to take the easy path they allow others to make those decisions for them- they like being owned.

Stan refuses to be owned as he is always telling the children “I am a full grown man, I can take care of myself.” Those who live off others can and should take lessons from a man who was never supposed to succeed failure was his only option- but yet he beat those options.

This book is available on Amazon, Amazon Kindle, audio books including itunes download with enhanced version with photos, and nook as well as Lulu
