“Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine. It’s not their journey to make sense of. It’s yours.” — Zero Dean
My name is Zero Dean. Since 2010, the lessons I’ve shared have reached an audience in the millions. In 2015, my “Not everyone will understand your journey” quote was shared with over 30 MILLION people on Facebook alone.
In December 2018, I published my first book. It’s called Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled Volume 1 and you can find it on Amazon sites worldwide. It includes the above quote and approximately 400 other potentially life-changing lessons for men & women of all ages.

I share lessons to help people find the courage, confidence, motivation, and self-discipline needed to overcome life’s challenges. Everything I share is based on real-life experiences and an ongoing journey along the path less traveled.
Because posts are written in response to life experiences, current ruminations, or lessons learned from my journey (2010 to present), there is no set schedule or agenda (other than to provide value).
No ads • No sponsors • No seminars • No “secrets to success” • No mystical motivation • No insincere enthusiasm • No superficial ego-boosting posts • No manipulative marketing tactics • No emphasis on materialism over happiness • No desire to imitate anyone or conform to the status quo • No insistent requests to subscribe to blog or follow on social media • No hidden agenda • No one to impress. • No hypocrisy — I live in congruence with the lessons I share. Love it or hate it. Content is written to be helpful and meaningful, not perfect or popular or designed for likes.
