Developing leaders from the inside out
In ancient times, samurai lived by a code that cried victory and defeat are one in the same. Only by learning to live with defeat can you find victory. Loshelder teaches this concept beautifully. Developing unwavering courage and the willingness to take calculated risks is the only way to success and personal achievement. Learning comes from losing and winning comes from losing—a concept we all need to live by. Loshelder simply conveys the mutual welfare for all through the ideal of self-development and leadership. He says if everyone does his or her part, society will gain. Having a plan to make changes, using a process, and analyzing results is the keystone to success and fulfillment, and this is what Loshelder communicates so well. The journey is more important than the destination.

This book needs to be on everyone’s bookshelf, Kindle, or phone, ready to be read anywhere you go.

This is a book for everyone and for everywhere.

As a scientist in my day job and judo coach in my spare time not everything goes to plan. Experiments fail or give unexpected results and athletes under perform. But with- out an open mindset and the ability to self reflect we will never progress. David’s book gives clear direction on how to approach these hurdles and move forward. As I say to my colleagues and students. Every day is a school day.”

Dave’s message to his readers is that success is a process, not a data point. It requires a balance of psychological, emotional, and physical commitment. Take the time to read this book and do the necessary self-reflection that will get you on the path you want to be.

Relatable, remarkable, and real! I loved what Dave had to say about commitment. In my mind, commitment was only about making a decision to do something you want and stick- ing to it. But it’s actually more than that. There is a whole personal development to your commitment. Once you have committed, you still have to choose to better yourself each and every day, such as improving your skills, learning from others, keeping that fire alive in you that caused you to make the commitment in the first place. He explains this perfectly in his “10 Commandments to Commitment.” Well worth the read!
