ON-Lion Letter
Do you feel like something big is missing from your life?  Do you feel trapped, bored, stuck in a meaningless routine?  It may be you think you're too ordinary to ever do something special.  Perhaps you're afraid that if you try, you'll fail.

The startling truth, however, is this:  just about anyone can do great things, can live a life that's remarkable, purposeful, excellent, and yes, even heroic.  If you want to be a hero, you can be.

Sandefer is an entrepreneur, teacher, and educational innovator.  He started his first company at age 16 and recently sold Sandefer Capital Partners, an energy investment firm with several billion dollars in assets.  He is the founder of the Acton School of Business in Austin, Tex.
Sirico is president of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty in Grand Rapids, Mich., which is substantially supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

"We," Sandefer and Sirico write in the book, "have been in your shoes.  We have heard the whisper of a calling, yet turned away.  We've struck out on epic challenges only to fail, sometimes miserably.  But we've also picked ourselves up and tried again and succeeded, sometimes spectacularly."

They then urge readers to decide to "journey heroically," instead of spending your life merely marking time.
