About the Book

Everyone desires the best for himself or herself and looks forward to such a world with great anticipation, hope and expectation. But what we may fail to understand is that the path to such a glorious world must go through a goliath or a red sea. One minute you are living in a world that is blossoming and overflowing with milk and honey and the next minute you find yourself in a world that has set hell to break loose as all things are falling apart, and you are surrounded with nothing but dead bones. So, what do you do? Fight back? Is it really worth fighting back? And if you do chose to fight back, HOW do you fight back? You can only overcome what you are willing to confront. Fighting back is your only best option if you must successfully deal with your goliath or red sea. And by the way, do you know that the presence of “goliath, the red sea, the Jordan river or the Jericho wall” signifies that you are one step closer to your breakthrough or destiny? Is there not a cause! Somethings are worth fighting for. But How? This Book is designed to encourage you as you confront your (good) fights by providing you with the necessary tools needed to address the HOW.

About the Author

Reuel is the second of 10 children; the first and only one among his siblings to go through post-secondary education and the 3rd in his native town to earn a terminal degree; distinctions he is not proud of because he desires and has committed himself to seeing to it that more in his community attend post-secondary education. He has a BA in English, a BS in Management Science, MS in Management Information System and a PhD in Higher Education Leadership, Management and Policy. Reuel also holds industry certification in Database Administration and in Research Administration. Reuel spent over 13 years working in the Financial industry before transitioning into higher education. When he is not at work, he spends his time in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, a role he considers as his most important divine’s earthly duty. He has given so many presentations in different settings on topics including but not limited to personal finance, leadership, conflict resolution, and personal responsibility (action). He considers himself as a fighter and believes that his first fight took place the very second he came out of his mother’s womb. Besides his personal fights fighting for a better tomorrow for himself and his family, he has fought against his parents who wanted him to become a medical doctor but he wanted something else; his grandfather and ultimately God (a battle he will eventually lose terribly) who saw in him a servant or slave of Christ but he said he wanted nothing to do with a poor job as such; against his native country as a student leader for the decentralization of higher education and against any system and/ or persons that perpetuates economic and social injustice on a people. It is this fighting spirit that gave birth to “Born to Fight.”
