From Mainland to Maui: Awakening From "The American Dream"

Now available for sale @ Amazon.com and DavidJGross.com

American ideology has corrupted the psyche of millions by measuring success through money and status. The pursuit of this standard is killing imagination, limiting potential, and destroying individualism. It's time for something new.

From Mainland to Maui: Awakening From "The American Dream" is a two part self-help guide to redefining success as the pursuit of personal goals, rather than simply money and status. Part one is the author's account of anxiously going against what he'd been taught by leaving college in search for a better life. With the goal of moving to Maui, David saved money waiting tables in Cincinnati, Ohio and found success by turning his dream into reality.

Part two is a step-by-step guide to reexamining what we truly value by encouraging readers to S.T.O.P.
-Stop everything
-Think about your past
-Observe your environment
-Plan with purpose

From Mainland to Maui doesn't promote moving to Hawaii, but encourages readers to find their own definition of paradise, then do whatever it takes to get there. In doing exactly what we deem to be worth our time and effort, success is inevitable.
