Imagine tonight, as you sleep, that God zaps you with a lightning bolt, and when you awake, you are living the perfect life. You get to wake up every morning from now on and do exactly what you were meant to do. You feel fulfilled and appreciated. You have no more concerns about having to impress anyone, and money no longer worries you. You are operating on all cylinders, and you feel full of life. Wouldn’t that be great?
Believe it or not, that is exactly what T. J. Gilroy expected to happen. He waited for a lightning bolt while flying attack helicopters in the Marine Corps. He waited for it while pursuing a career in business. He eventually found his passion, but not by lightning bolt. He wrote The Holy Hand Grenade out of a sense of obligation to help others find what he found.
The book takes its title from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail (still a cult favorite with Baby Boomers and Millennials). In a scene in the movie, King Arthur must answer three questions correctly in order to cross over the Bridge of Death. If you choose to find your passion, you’ll have to answer three questions, too. The three questions the book will help you answer are: Who are You Really, What is Your Gift, and What Do You Seek.
Baby boomers have read it. Generation X’s have read it. Millennials have read it. The book’s message is timeless and timely especially with our current economic uncertainties. We all want to know “why am I here” and “what am I really supposed to be doing”. The Holy Hand Grenade will help you find your desire, passion and purpose.
