In life you never really know when you might meet someone who will change your life. And more important, you never know when your influence might change another. This book is about influence. It is about a man who lived in a simple place but had extraordinary insight. He also had something else on his side. He had time; time to invest himself in the life of another who was lost on his journey. This story is based on the thousands of athletes the author has counseled and the great mentors and teachers from whom he has learned. He has brought twenty plus years of peak performance coaching together and compressed them into a story of two fictitious characters; a rancher with a passion for teaching truth and a young golf professional at the end of his rope. They represent each of us in the various stages of growth. In life we must be willing to coach and be coached, for either one alone will leave us empty. Unabridged. 4 CDs. 4 hours. Read by Herschel Miller.
