Set in the magical world of Center Earth, inhabited by dwarves, elves, goblins and wizards, The Magic Lantern is a tale of personal development that teaches the keys to success and happiness. This fable examines what it means to take on true leadership while learning to become maximally effective with everyone we meet.
Renowned personal empowerment trainer, coach and veteran author, Dr. Joe Rubino tells the story of a group of dwarves and their young leader who go off in search of the secrets to a life that works, a life filled with harmony and endless possibilities and void of the regrets and upsets that characterize most people’s existence. With a mission to restore peace and harmony to their village in turmoil, the characters overcome the many challenges they encounter along their eventful journey. Through self-discovery, they develop the principles necessary to be the best that they can be as they step into leadership and lives of contribution to others.
The Magic Lantern teaches us such noble lessons as:
* the power of forgiveness
* the meaning of responsibility and commitment
* what leadership is really all about
* the magic of belief and positive expectation
* the value of listening as an art
* the secret to mastering one’s emotions and actions
* and much more.
It combines the spellbinding story telling reminiscent of Tolkien’s The Hobbit with the personal development tools of the great masters. The book’s intended audience is youth, age 13 to adult.
