In Life on the Edge, author Stephany Francisca chronicles her path to finding a formula for a true life that has enabled her to meet and exceed her own objectives. As she recounts her personal memories and experiences from childhood to adulthood, she synthesizes the patterns that she followed to accomplish her life goals.
To her, the pattern is clear:
You do because you don’t know better (ages 4–5).
You do because you want to change the undesired outcome to a desired one (ages 6–10).
You dare yourself to do more and push your boundaries each time you succeed (ages 14–15).
You keep daring but with pre-damage control you take bigger risks (ages 19-22).
Author Francisca definitely took the road less traveled as she challenged everything from eating broccoli at six to being allowed to live on her own at fifteen. She talks about the challenges of fighting conventional wisdom, and of determining her own fate as opposed to letting her fate be dictated by others.
Life on the Edge is about following your dreams and living life to the fullest—on your own terms—by creating your own path in life and then following it!
