Our Hero Within
"You may find yourself to be out of tune with life, but you aren't. As every journey has a hero, you are the hero of yours. You just have to be willing to take the risk and realize your fullest potential." - Benjamin David
Follow along as Benjamin recalls his incredible true story in "Our Hero Within".
A survivor of child abuse feeling "lost in life", he begins his story having just left Mexico after spending 6 months in Casa By The Sea, a notoriously corrupt behavior modification school ran by the WWASPS organization. and takes you through a sobering journey of what it's like to grow up inside a West Texas maximum security prison unit.
Part coming-of-age story, part practical advice manual for discovering your true self, Benjamin uses what he learned while in prison from reading books on spirituality and psychology and combining that with his many years as a sports nutritionist and successful fitness trainer there-after, he writes Our Hero Within, offering the full spectrum of mind, body, and soul healing to help you fuel and empower your journey to come.
"Most people wander around through life as if they are some sort of unexplainable miracle or accident, but the truth is, is that no one is an accident. You don't have to be. We're all here with a purpose. We just have to have faith as we figure out what that is." - Benjamin David, Our Hero Within.
"Ben, I wanted to reach out because I just finished reading your book, "Our Hero Within" on Wattpad. I was really impacted by it- I could barely put it down! Your story left me slack-jawed. Your experiences seem like they could be made into a thriller movie! I did not expect it to also contain any of the practical knowledge you included on neuroplasticity, brain chemistry, nutrition, and fitness. The way you put it all together alongside your personal narrative and martial arts philosophy was brilliant and moving. Thank you so much for sharing your story!" - David G.
