The great Seneca once warned, "If we do not know to which port we are sailing, no wind will be favorable to us." This wise quote speaks to the importance of developing purpose, direction, and motivation not from others, but from within.

By Example is a pathway toward that goal. Whether in leadership, or in life, these twelve personal missions will empower you to influence widespread positive change, and to maximize your own unique human potential.

As the title suggests, this program will challenge you to focus primarily on yourself, and to accept responsibility for your own legacy. By completing each training exercise, you will learn to combat challenges with both insight, and healthy habits.

To live and lead this way requires a lifelong process of learning and growth. Therefore, why wait another day? Begin where you are; open this thought-provoking guide, and strive to live life... By Example.

About the Author

Both TRAVIS and HUGH were born in the Midwest United States, and began their military careers in Basic Combat Training at the junior enlisted ranks. They each served more than ten years as non-commissioned officers (NCOs) in a variety of leadership positions, and graduated from the U.S. Army’s Senior Leader Course before being commissioned as Behavioral Science Officers in 2011.

They are honor graduates of the Army’s rigorous Master of Social Work (MSW) Program, and have since worked in a variety of prevention, treatment, and recovery settings. They are both Licensed as Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina, and have provided care and consultation to numerous soldiers, couples, families, small groups, and military units.

TRAVIS grew up as a 'military brat’ throughout the United States and Germany. Today he is a husband, father of three children, and author of three books. His experience with open-heart surgery as a young soldier, and the challenging recovery process, has inspired both his writing and his work in behavioral health.

HUGH on the other hand, has deployed to combat on multiple occasions with the 10th Mountain Division, completed the grueling Ironman triathlon, and has overcome many other challenging obstacles in life.

Together, these authors bring a variety of knowledge, experience, and wisdom as they aim to empower others through this, their first book of its kind, By Example. It is their hope that this journey will serve you in a variety of ways, all of which contribute positively to the well-being of the Army, the United States of America, and the larger world to which we are all connected.

Perhaps these tools, and the many others that you will discover along the way, will further enable you to thrive in any situation, and to serve this great country with HONOR... as it should be served.
