This business fable reveals the secrets to finding life’s purpose and success. This story… just might change yours.

It took Ned Noonan decades to build the finest investment firm in Boston. It took his son, Eddie, just a couple of months to destroy it. No job, no savings, no discernable future. So late one night, Eddie silently slips his father’s yacht out of dry dock and sets his sails for a solo voyage to Ireland. He doesn’t realize that a young woman is a stowaway on the boat, or that his father left a book for him that will change Eddie’s life.

Ned’s book lays out what the most successful people do intuitively. Hard work is only the beginning. Add intention, alignment, focus and discipline, and now you can truly begin to direct your life.

His dad’s manuscript provides step-by-step exercises to:

  • Define the life you desire—happiness, freedom, financial success
  • Create specific goals that align with your desires
  • Set the course to reach those goals
  • Integrate consistent action steps that move you toward your goals
  • Enjoy the ride to finding life’s purpose

It changed the direction of Eddie’s life.

You have the power to navigate through life just as a sailor navigates the current. Instead of a rudder and sail your tools are intention, alignment, focus and discipline. Decide on your destination—intention. Harness the wind in your sails, and maneuver with your rudder—alignment. Continually ensure you are staying on course—focus. Know that you will reach your destination because nothing will permanently take you off course—discipline.
