About the Author
Hi, I'm Matt Gersper!
Author. Speaker. Entrepreneur. On a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the world, one person at a time. Founder, HappyLiving.com. Board Member, Fluoresentric.com.
I live on Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina with my beautiful wife and our two daughters.
I graduated from the University of California - Davis where I studied Economics, ran track, and played football. I dedicated my first two years after college to becoming a professional athlete, only to come up short with the unique distinction of being cut from three different teams, in three different leagues: Canadian, USFL, and NFL.
Over the next 30 years, I focused on training myself to become a successful businessman. I was given many opportunities to learn and gain expertise in the various functions required to start, grow, and lead successful businesses.
I have shifted my focus from helping businesses to helping people. On January 16, 2014, I decided to sell my previous company and dedicate my time and resources to researching and sharing best practices for happy living.
I write to inspire others to believe that a better self is always possible - today, every day, for the rest of their lives.

This is different than the "must do's" and the "should do's" I grew up with and still influence me to this day. I remember my mother and father setting those expectations. Some of my personal beliefs are similar to the "musts" and shoulds" but some are different. Understanding the difference for myself is not simple but it is very illuminating.
While Matt Gersper and Kaileen Elise Sues show us the path, it is not simply checking off a box. The authors are very upfront about the time and effort you will need to complete this path. They guide you step by step through a process that allows you to explore and decide what your "right" answers are for various areas of your life.
The last chapter brings the path to a destination. Each of us will need to figure out the final destination based on what we have learned about ourselves. After reading the book, I have come to the realization that I will need to explore more than once to figure out if I picked the right path! I look forward to becoming more self-aware. :)
I think we all know there's more to life than what we are living, however how on earth do you find it, and then experience it? What I liked about this book is that is gives you some very practical ways to live a better, more fulfilling life.
The authors (Matt & Kaileen) base their helpful tips on 7 foundations of health and happiness. They describe in detail the way Matt applies the 7 foundations in his own life. These aren't airy fairly tips, they are helpful and easy to apply if you choose to.
So, if you are looking for a book that can enhance your life in many key areas, then this book is for you. It's a good practical book, filled with many inspirational quotes and helpful life changing tips. At times it will challenge what you think about how you currently live, which is a great thing.
This book is aligned with many of the beliefs I have about life and the way it’s meant to be lived.
Me and Matt share several things in common
• A commitment to lifelong learning.
• A yearning for significance.
• An introspective mindset.
He shares his views on ways to build a healthy lifestyle in several areas including physical, mental, and financial.
He talks about his daily practices to create fulfillment. One of which is meditation. I meditate often myself and agree that it’s a great self-reflection tool.
He shares his wisdom gained through experience as well as learning. He draws reference to several books and teachings that I’m familiar with.
One of the parts of the book that resonated with me the most is where the author talks about our “shoulds.” Oftentimes we get caught up in worrying about the things we should be doing as opposed to the things we’re meant to be doing.
I never saw the point in working hard to get straight A’s but people told me I should.
I’m following my dream of being an author and entrepreneur. But most people believe that I should just settle on finding a safe and secure job and stay there until I’m 65.
Instead of worrying about my shoulds I found my purpose and I work everyday towards making my dreams a reality. This book is a great resource that has been useful in moving me closer to my destiny. If you’re a motivated and open minded person this book will help you do the same.
The book blends elements of taoism and other philosophies with the authors's personal experience without ever being preachy or complex. I particularly liked the practical advices, such as the idea of a monthly 'cleansing' day both for your body and your mind. Matt has lived an interesting life so far, and this book reads like a summary of the things he might have wished he'd known when he was just starting out.
'The Belief Road Map' is an excellently written, motivating book, which will inspire you to achieve more than you expect, in every way. The authors don't flat-out tell you what to do. Above all, they invite you to live a more conscious life and to seek out adventure wherever it may hide. And who would disagree?

The way Matt communicates is very friendly and not bookish.Read more
