Product description

Product Description

Mental Violation is a story that isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a recollection of things that normal humans wouldn’t share about themselves, especially for the entire world to read. It’s graphic, and it’s intense, but I believe others can learn from my struggles. I’m ready to share how I battled my inner demons and overcame my self-destructive habits, which has allowed me to truly start living for the first time.

“It’s the true story of how a young man overcame his preconceived notions and broke through themental barriers holding him back from success.”

All of us must conquer our mental violations in order to live the lives we’ve always dreamed of. I grew up thinking I was a loser, and my depression got so bad it had me thinking about suicide for years on end. I didn’t care whether I lived or not. Unfortunately, I was reckless, and I made a lot of poor decisions in my search for acceptance. My life plummeted into a downhill spiral until I hit “rock bottom.”

I made a transformation from the shithead party animal I used to be—a kid who barely passed high school—to getting accepted into one of the most prestigious business programs nearly a decade later. I’ve managed to accomplish things I couldn’t have even dreamed of in my past, and you happen to be reading one of them. I think we tend to sell ourselves short from what we’re truly capable of. It’s no secret that life is tough and that it surely sucks at times—but shouldn’t we at least search for a way to make living it worthwhile? It’s time to stop holding ourselves back from living the life we dream of. All we have to do is conquer our Mental Violation!
