Life has a funny way of working itself out.
I can never remember a time when I dreamed of being an author, I did not ever say, someday I am going to write a book. As a matter of fact, english or language arts was my most dreaded class in school! Growing up had it’s share of struggles and challenges, but never did I think those things would be the foundation for a book to help others overcome their challenges.
The reason I am now an author is not due to a lifelong dream but a lifelong journey to overcome the negative voices holding me back. “Swing” is my attempt at explaining how the right information and association can change everything, even for a shy, low self-confident young man.
I have now been reading, listening and associating in LIFE for over 13 years. Learning from some of the top mentors in the leadership, finance and personal development fields. My life is an example of what is happening all over the globe with the GreenBox or Financial Fitness Program from LIFE.
My hope is that as you go through “Swing” you gain the tools to get the courage to take your swings in life. Too many people go through life with the bat on their shoulder, letting fear hold them back. It is time to lift the bat and take your “SWING!”
“Swing: Finding the Courage to Become” coming April 21st and available at the Weekend of Entrepreneurs.
Praise for “Swing: Finding the Courage to Become”
“SWING is jam packed with real life examples, success principles and action steps you need to dust yourself off and get back up. No matter where you are in life today, Dan Hawkins lays out your plan to SWING for the fences. But it doesn’t come easy. It takes that stuff in your gut that few have, but all want. It takes COURAGE. This book shows you how to get some. You won’t regret this read!” – Chris Swanson, M.P.A., EMT-P, AGO Spokesman
“The Revolution has arrived! Anyone who reads and applies what Dan Hawkins teaches in SWING is going to experience a lot more success in life. Some books are informational, while others are entertaining or fun. This book has all that, but it is also downright powerful! It’s an instant classic. If you want a better life in the years ahead, SWING is one book you simply must read—and your kids, friends, and anyone else who wants to truly (and effectively) live their dreams.”
– Oliver DeMille, New York Times Bestselling Author and Founder of Thomas Jefferson Education
Dan Hawkins has hit a home run in his new book, ‘Swing’! In my twenty plus years as an entrepreneur I have witnessed, by far, the biggest deterrent to success, failing to act because of self doubt and fear. Dan describes the most important ingredient to success, ‘courage.’ He inspires us through his own personal story. I have had a front row seat watching Dan’s growth. I remember a shy young man who barely made eye contact when he first met me. I’ve watched him literally transform his life. In the book, ’Swing,’ he shares the principles that he’s applied. This book will inspire all of us to have the courage to become the person that God has created us to become.

“Dan Hawkins is so quiet in person that I usually take for granted the incredible battle he fought to control his fears and choose the kind of life he really wants. When I read about how his wife made him leave a seminar and they fought for the entire 9 hour drive home, and how he eventually took a stand and shared his dreams out loud, I found myself saying “Wow!” I had tears in my eyes. This book is so moving, and so relevant. Many readers will share Dan’s experiences, watch how he won his victory, and then they’ll go do the same. This literally could be the most impactful book I’ve ever read.”
