Lifting a Foot Forward: A Lesson in Balance by Greg Morton

8 Aug

This book would be categorized as a motivational autobiography.  It’s a quick read about the life of a boy turned man who had experiences that would shape his decisions and his life. 

It’s broken down into three chapters; Learning to Walk, Off Balance and Balance.  Within them you follow his life as a young boy starring opposite Kate Jackson in the hit television series Scarecrow and Mrs. King and attempting to find his way among his peers and out in the real world.  He covers all the positive and negative experiences that accompanied the first of what would turn out to be many adventures.

While still feeling the bite of the acting bug, he made a decision to leave it behind and chase other interests.  Eventually entering the corporate world, he found his niche motivating others and becoming a master at problem solving.  Although he was good at what he did, he jumped from job to job never feeling fulfilled and never finding what he was looking for.  

That was, until a cold January day in 2008.  Many ordinary people have extraordinary experiences.  Thankfully for us, Greg is a gifted writer, who after having an extraordinary experience was able to put it not only in writing but in perspective to change his life. 



Follow his journey from childhood to present day and learn from his unique point of view.  You’ll get wrapped up in his storytelling and find yourself wanting to get out there and do something.  Anything. 


Mr. Morton is also the author of the action adventure series The Fury of the Bear and its sequel To Catch a Fox.  In 2011 he released a collection of untitled poems and original photography and will be releasing a book of short fantasy/adventure tales this fall.  His blog is followed by many who tune in regularly for their daily dose of inspiration, humor and thought-provoking posts.  I recommend you visit his Morton Design Works website where you’ll find not only his blog but can purchase his work as well. 

Oh, and after being my best friend, husband and partner for 20 years, he’s still the love of my life.
