This is what the dust cover of my future book, either an autobiography or biography of me, would say:
He did just that. As he progressed through his adult life, he failed at everything he ever attempted. He lost the woman he wanted to marry, lost multiple cars, went into $50,000 of debt, worked for multiple failed startups, lost his home, had to move back in with his grandparents, and was scammed by multiple people.
Feeling completely defeated in November of 2011, he was ready to end it all.
He planned, he calculated, and figured out his way to depart from the world. He thought that this day in November would be his last day as a part of the world.
However, a miracle happened. Leonard was saved by his ex.
As Leonard spent the next few years reflecting back upon his life, he remembered a specific statement made by his friend Matt Morrow.
“In life, no one is completely useless. You can always serve as a bad example.”
Leonard is the epitome of that bad example of which Mr. Morrow spoke.
Leonard took that advice to heart. He decided to share his experiences and his failures of his life, right here with you. So that, maybe you can avoid some of the negative experiences he had in his life. So that, maybe you can know what not to do in life. So that, maybe you can see what you’re capable of, when you’re blessed with another passing moment to turn it all around.
