SIDELIGHTS: Lawrence T. Barnard told CA: "I have spent my life in search of a system of tools that will enable us to take control of our lives. I was born into a broken home and poverty. I learned how to rise above my circumstances and create a life of emotional and financial independence. I have put together a book, Xplore the Core: The Art of Personal Development in a World of Change, that offers simple principles that anyone can follow in order to gain the skill of self-mastery. The book offers the introductory steps to a lifelong process of personal development in body, mind, and soul."
