About the Book

In Stop Missing Your Life, Cory Muscara guides us on a journey into the heart of what is required for real change, growth, and happiness.

He exposes how the phrase "be present" has become little more than a platitude, imbued with the misguided message to be present just for the sake of being present, and reveals how to achieve true Presence: a quality of being that is unmistakably attractive about a person, and one that only comes when we've peeled back the layers of guarding that prevent us from being our full, honest, and integrated selves in the world.

With wit, honesty, and the benefit of his experiences as a monk and wellbeing expert, Cory shows us how to give ourselves more permission to be human, stop self-sabotaging our growth, and let go of the things that hold us back from living a rich, full life.
