About The Book

“Live the Life You’ve Yet to Dream”

A book for anyone who strives to be a better person, parent or spouse.

Many people would consider a childhood full of abuse and a subsequent struggle with severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to be a burden. But John C. Neyland believes he has been truly blessed. With a unique perspective on many issues involving marriage, parenting, and business, John has turned the struggles he’s faced and the skills he’s learned into a book of unflinching honesty aimed at helping others.

Live the Life You’ve Yet to Dream is both a memoir and a blueprint for the reader who knows there is something more. Dedicated to giving back, John Neyland has written an inspiring story that details how he turned his personal struggles into positives and how he seeks to pay it forward each and every day.

Growing up in Louisiana with a domineering, abusive father and an alcoholic, depressed, and suicidal mother, John witnessed racism, abuse, and apathy about love. Developing severe OCD shortly after he met the love of his life at age fifteen, John spent years struggling with family life, issues of personal worth, and mental illness. Live the Life You’ve Yet to Dream explains what he learned, how he grew, and how he’s made it his life’s mission to help others achieve their dreams.

"This is a story of survival and triumph. The author is a man of vision and love for others."

Kim Neck

“The story inspires me to live a life that is unrestrained by thoughts of ‘can’t, shouldn’t or wouldn’t.”

Mandy Guidry

“The lessons in the book are so powerful!”

Chuck Dixon
