THE FOREWORD:

       Many of us now look back on our lives and say; “IF I ONLY KNEW BACK THEN
    WHAT I KNOW NOW”, my life would be different. I would have made better choices
    and decisions; I would have asked more questions; I would have taken a different
    route; I would have waited longer before I got married; I would have gone to college
    or taken up some kind of a trade; I would have joined the military; I would have
    started my career much earlier; I would have done more for my parents; I would
    have given my parents more Honor and respect; I would have spent more time with
    my children; I would have finished college; I would have waited longer before I
    started a family; I would have taken better care of my body; I would have paid more
    attention to my dental health; I would have started saving and investing earlier, etc.
    The list goes on and on.

      Having hindsight is everything. However, hindsight is too late when most of our life
    has passed us by and we can’t go back and change things. We can only look back
    but we can’t go back. So what do we do with the information and the wisdom we
    have gained from our past? We should pass it on to the next generation so they can
    be much wiser when making those same decisions and choices that will affect them
    for the rest of their lives.

      This book is the result of my learning some principles of life and wanting to share
    these principles with others. This simple guide will help any generation if they take
    time to read, listen, and learn.  Nobody knows how long they will journey in this life.
    Nevertheless, if we could learn a few basic principles before starting off, we could
    make the journey with fewer headaches and disappointments in ourselves.
    Hopefully, anyone who reads this book will take heed to these simple truths and
    apply them to their lives before their journey begins. Those who have already
    started can also gain insight and make appropriate adjustments. These are some
    of the insights that I have gained along my path.

      From growing up on the farmlands of S.C., to earning a B.S. Degree in Electrical
    Engineering, a former U.S. Air Force Pilot, becoming a published Author, my life’s
    journey has encountered setbacks along this path. Despite what appears to be a
    successful career, I had periods of uncertainties and made many mistakes in the
    process. Considering myself to be very intelligent and not needing a mentor or life
    coach, I started my journey with only what I thought I knew about life. Learning how
    to be a man, a husband, and a father while still growing up was not easy. Lifestyle
    changes, family dynamics, money, household management, relationships, credit
    cards, and world travelling came at a very fast pace. It became very challenging for
    me to face these realities of living the lifestyle that I was creating for myself.   
    Although I made good career choices and decisions, I did not seek wise counsel
    when I should have…particularly in the areas of relationships and financial
    preparation for the later stages of my life. Those two areas have cost me plenty of
    time and money. I didn't know that I didn't know....cont.
