In my life I have been an athlete, a warrior, and a businessman. I have had success and setbacks with all. It became evident early on that there was more learning and growth potential in understanding and recovering from the setbacks than from basking in the successes.
In wanting to create useful guideposts for my children I shared some of these personal experiences in story form. The following brief publication retells some of these stories and includes a sampling of some of the wise quotes drawn from my Small Bites.
Please forgive the egocentric nature of the stories as these were originally written for my children. I suggest that you put yourself in the role of the story-teller and determine what personal lessons or insights might apply.
