This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with George Chanos.
George J. Chanos, who has had a distinguished legal career and served as Nevada’s 31st attorney general, is author of “Seize Your Destiny, Choices That Lead To A Happy, Successful and Meaningful Life.”
In November 2012, Chanos suffered a major heart attack. It made him reflect upon his own mortality and sharpened his focus on what’s truly important. It inspired him to reduce to writing what he considered life’s most important lessons, lessons that he believed would help his family lead a happy, successful and meaningful life.
This book represents the advice that he is sharing with his daughter and his nephew – both Millennials.
As he began reducing his thoughts to writing, Chanos realized that publishing this as a book could advance a broader purpose. It would allow him to make a contribution that might enrich the lives of other families – perhaps even entire communities.
Chanos has a common sense approach to dealing with problems and a unique ability to understand and explain complex issues. He believes how anyone, regardless of circumstance, can overcome the challenges they face and go on to design and lead a happy, successful and meaningful life.
