The Everyday Warrior

Michael Sarraille

WE ALL STRIVE FOR A LIFE OF PURPOSE AND FULFILLMENT, yet few achieve it. Why? Because it’s hard. Relationships, careers, physical fitness—they all take effort. Despite our best intentions, it’s easy to lose focus. In today’s digital culture, we’re inundated with quick fixes and false promises: take this pill and lose fifteen pounds; buy this app and be more productive. The truth is, you can’t buy a life of purpose, and fulfillment was never just a shortcut away. Life is a continuous journey built on making progress and pursuing potential. The Everyday Warrior is your guide to approaching life with a healthy mindset, acting with intention, and focusing on your physical, mental, and spiritual growth—because lasting success requires the pursuit of balance. You’ll draw on the wisdom of other everyday warriors to overcome challenges, be resilient, and build positive habits that’ll change your life. As an everyday warrior, you’ll learn to transform setbacks into valuable lessons, turn small victories into remarkable achievements, and embrace the freedom of knowing that success isn’t the destination—it’s simply part of the journey.

We’re proud to announce that 25% of the book’s proceeds will support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. This incredible nonprofit provides full postsecondary scholarships and other educational opportunities to the children of fallen Special Operations personnel and Medal of Honor recipients. Not only does The Everyday Warrior give you the tools to change your life, but it also allows you to honor America’s heroes by making a lasting difference in the lives of those they loved most—today and forever.

Failing doesn't mean you've failed—it means you're one step closer to success. I've learned more about life and my sport during a failure. It's an amazing teacher. We don't hear this enough in today's culture of social media filters, selective posting, and shameless self-promotion. The Everyday Warrior fights back against this toxic cycle by encouraging readers to pursue their goals and showing them that failure is healthy—as long as they get back up, reflect, and keep moving forward. Parents should make this required reading for their teens and for themselves.
