The Book : Zone 14

Mentoring a new breed of High Performers committed to living their extraordinary lives in healthy, joyful and inclusive ways.

From his years of experience as an athlete, artist, scholar, & leadership advisor, Dr. Ruben Perczek presents a strong case for going for what most matters to you without having to sell your soul in the process.

Our current times are calling for a shift in our concept of excellence. The old model of ‘win at all cost’ to validate our self-value must be replaced by one that fuels us to excel by being real, skillful and kind but doesn't mix our self-value with our external accomplishments.

Rich in his own personal story, Dr. Ruben shares personal stories as a father, coach & life-long student of human potential that illustrate how all of us together can live an extraordinary and grateful life, one that reflects what matters to us without having to sacrifice our souls.

An inspiring and heartfelt book, powered by Dr. Ruben's own experience as one who has lived the journey of a pro athlete, artist, and presently as one of the world's finest thought leaders in raising sustainable excellence!

Learning to Dream Again for Ourselves, Our Children and Our Humanity

Having cultivated expertise through his years of experience as an athlete, artist, scholar, & leadership advisor for people who care deeply about leading with integrity, collaboration & humility, Ruben Perczek presents a strong case for re-thinking our definition success.

At this time when the complexities we face as a humanity are calling for a shift from an individual path of high achievement to a collective journey of purposeful and generous collaboration, Ruben shares personal stories as a father, coach & life-long student of human potential that illustrate how all of us together can envision and realize a new greatness based on joy, integrity, and transparent commitment.

“Our culture's overemphasis on achievement has created a generation of well-meaning parents swept up in a distorted definition of what it means to raise a 'successful' human being. Zone14 fundamentally challenges us to re-think our old mental maps for how we positively contribute to the lives of ours and future generations.”

~ LARRY DRESSLER, Author of Standing in the Fire: Leading High-Heat Meetings with Clarity, Calm, and Courage

"One of my main drivers for creating ZONE 14 was witnessing so many people waiting to live the life that most matters to them. So that’s where I decided to focus: supporting YOU to 'go for' what most matters to YOU, live your TRUTH, what YOU STAND FOR." 

~ Dr. Ruben Perczek
