"When 'Want To' Becomes 'Have To!'" is Gary Highfield's amazing story of overcoming great adversity - a disadvantaged environment, limited education, and horrific family experiences - to achieve a successful career and attain the lifestyle he desired for his wife and children. It's about a man's resolve to reach for the "American dream" through hard work, determination, "want to," and timely, providential help from kind people along the way. Gary overcame fear of the unknown, a lack of professional job experience, and virtually no marketable people skills. He had no idea what a résumé was before embarking on an ambitious and comprehensive self-improvement program. But this book is far more than an autobiography or personal memoir. More than anything, it's about breaking chains - the chains that hold people back from realizing their dreams, utilizing their God-given talents, and enjoying the fulfillment of discovering and becoming all they can be. In addition to candidly sharing his personal story of struggles and setbacks, and a steadfast resolve not to let them determine his future, Gary provides his readers with a wealth of wisdom he's gained through the years. He cites quotations from successful people that have proved especially helpful during his life and career journey. His "Some Thoughts for You to Consider" lists that appear at the start of each chapter challenge the reader to think about some of life's important truths. And his "Action Steps" offer concrete ideas for applying the principles Gary presents to one's personal circumstances. As he writes, "this book is about the power of setting goals and pursuing them with all your might. Putting goals into words is a great first step, but they have no value until you're determined to do something about them. Nothing happens until you take action. Believe me, your dreams are screaming out your name!" For anyone feeling discouraged, who's struggling to survive "under the circumstances," Gary Highfield's book will become a much-awaited, helpful guide to realizing a rich, rewarding and meaningful life. As he points out, "If you will take to heart the principles I've learned and put them into action, and if you will work hard, you will begin to see separation from the things that have been holding you back.... The question is, how far do you want to go? Take charge of your life. As the saying goes, if I can do it, anyone can!"
