A message from the author to the reader
Have you ever been considered an underdog? Do you ever find yourself chasing after the code to riches? If you answered yes to both of these questions then you will benefit tremendously from this book. No matter where you are in your life right now, this book will inspire you to get to the next level. For in the book lies the C.O.D.E. to unlock your full potential, regardless of your past or present circumstances.
One thing people have in common is that we all want a better life. Whether you are at the top of your game or are searching to make meaning of your life and discover your true purpose, this book will inspire you to see past what you already know. It will challenge you in unique ways to break through into your next level of growth and wealth. And that really excites me. I say this because unless challenged or stretched, life will just continue on the same path.
It is my intention that this book serves as an interruption — A good interruption, if you know what I mean. Physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton once said that “An object in motion tends to remain in motion along a straight line unless acted upon by an outside force”. That is exactly what this book will be for you: an impact that will vault you in a completely new direction.
In this book, Richie and Diego, the two main characters, are teenage sons of a drug-dealing father. After their father is arrested and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison, Diego follows in his father’s footsteps and joins a drug dealing circle in NYC.
Richie, however, is determined to follow his own path, and he must overcome great adversity to achieve his goals. As fate would have it, he is introduced to a highly successful entrepreneur, Mr. Rodriguez. He becomes a mentor for Richie and a journey of transformation begins to discover the code to riches that lies in every person whether rich or poor.
As an author, keynote speaker and life/business success coach, my work is focused on helping people uncover their blind spots and creating new beliefs and possibilities to empower others to move forward with velocity. But instead of sharing my success principles in a “how to book”, I decided to share it through a powerful story. Although the story is fictitious, it is told in a captivating way that draws you in, chapter by chapter. Warning: many people have said that once you make it to chapter 2, the books is hard to put down.
This particular modern day tale will take you on a journey of self discovery, and each chapter will reveal gems of information that will cause new breakthroughs in how you think and look at life. By the end of the book, you will be left with a new outlook on life, one that will leave you feeling joyful, clear on what next steps to take and most important of all, inspired and empowered to tackle life’s challenges with confidence, intentionality and power.
Each character in this book was written from the point of view from the people who I interviewed. In reality, it’s their story, told through a tale. I decided to make it a tale because the majority of these people never wanted their names mentioned. They wanted to remain anonymous. This is why the book has a sense of realness to it. Be prepared to be inspired, laugh and be moved to tears as you read this story of trials, tribulations, and triumph.
Now for people who feel stuck, depressed or are going through a tough and challenging time, The Underdog’s Code to Riches can be a godsend. You know you are stuck or depressed if:
1. Being frustrated is the norm.
2. Confusion is your middle name.
3. You are constantly unmotivated.
4. You are constantly tired and depressed.
5. You feel lost in your life or business.
6. You are constantly worried about even the smallest things.
7. You think you will never amount to anything or accumulate riches
If this list describes you, you should know that this book will make an enormous difference in your life. This book will take you on a journey of self discovery and you will become one with the main character. You will relate to his struggles and see how he is coached by his millionaire mentor in the book. You will feel like his mentor, “Mr. Rodriguez”, is giving you the coaching personally. I only say this because this is what other readers have told me they have experienced. This powerful coaching will empower you to go from “Stuck to Unstoppable” in all areas of your life once you discover the code. As a result of this effective style of coaching, you will find yourself making bold decisions and experiencing new breakthroughs way before you finish the book.
Now for achievers and top performers, The Underdog’s Code to Riches can be revolutionary and transformative. You know you are an achiever or top performer if:
1. You are empowered.
2. You consider yourself a leader.
3. You achieve almost everything you set your mind to.
4. Advancing and moving forward are your top priorities.
5. You are very driven to succeed.
6. You are an accomplished person who knows how to take action.
7. You relate to yourself as a fearless leader.
8. You know yourself to be a courageous person.
If this list describes you, you know that the best way to stay at the top of your game is by always seeking new ways to increase your personal growth. When you’re at the top of your game, you keep increasing sales, income, leadership skills, fulfillment and happiness. Getting outside of your comfort zone is what will keep you expanding, and this is exactly what this book will do for you.
I know I have made some pretty huge promises, and soon you will see that I was not wrong for a single second. In closing, I want to say that the best is yet to come and I am excited for your next-level breakthroughs. I am excited in sharing The Underdog’s Code to Riches with you. I consider it an honor to share this journey with you. You should know that I did everything on my end to ensure this book makes an everlasting difference in your life.
Hopefully it will live up to your expectations. Now let the journey begin!
With love and gratitude,
– Edward R. Muñoz
