Waiting for Jack is Eat, Pray, Love meets the Success Principles. Its memoir meets “how to.” It’s an inquiry into why we keep waiting for our lives to start, why we look outside ourselves for the answers and why we hide the magnificence that we really are. After so many years of being a seeker and not a finder, I declared an end to the “waiting for Jack.” Through the sharing of intimate and authentic stories (both mine and others), the reader takes the journey to break free from the “self-help treadmill” and to find their own “inner Jack.”
It is the permission we have been waiting for to end the cycle of searching and never finding. It’s an inquiry not an answer—the reader is provided with tools and challenged to find her own unique answers. It is the call to stop “jacking around.” It’s the access to being set free to create our lives and to stop waiting to live.
We are all Waiting for Jack—whatever or whoever “Jack” is. We falsely believe the gifts of life are just around the corner, that anywhere is better than here, that one day we will arrive and everything will be okay. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You'll always miss one-hundred percent of the shots you don't take!”
So take the shot, get on the path, and move forward. Authentically give your word to something that matters to you. And remember, you don’t have to wait for Jack.
