Our leaders teach us the wrong values--we let them

"What one skill, if you developed it, could have the greatest positive impact on your career? This is the key to your future."
- Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy is a well respected guru about how to succeed in business. He epitomizes the emphasis that the education systems of most countries place on what is important in life.

Yet we have people who happily blow themselves up while killing others in the explosion, who take illegal drugs to the point their minds are altered and their futures destroyed, who murder their own families and kill themselves, who indulge in various addictive activities, who refuse to vote for their democratically elected government representatives, who are unable to hold a marriage together, who have little idea how to raise children, who drive the biggest gas-guzzling, air-polluting SUVs they can afford, and so on.

They do, however, know how to succeed in business.

When education systems work on an industrial model where work success is the objective rather than life success, we are bound to have lots of people with messed up minds and messed up lives, who in turn raise children with messed up minds and lives.

I am not the only person who believes we should be using our education systems to stress quality of life and life skills. However, I am one person who has written a book that can make the change happen, realistically, simply and cheaply.

I need your help to spread the word. One person can change the world, but only with lots of support.
