The Zero Method

Now on Kindle. Paperback Release June 1, 2022

by Richard Oelberger, PHD

The Zero Method focuses on reclaiming our lives and choosing a path forward from whatever circumstances, trials, or challenges we are facing or have faced leading up to this current moment. This book explores the question of what it would mean or look like to have complete ownership over our lives? This book explores the current challenge that we are often out of touch with who we are and what we want. Without being connected to ourselves, taking ownership is impossible.

This book outlines ways in which men can identify, tap into, and take care of their emotional needs. By becoming more connected to who we are, we gradually become stronger "owners" in our lives and unleash our hero potential.


This book is for men who seek a better quality of life through self-improvement. They seek to reach their personal goals through authenticity and ownership and are ready to shed false ideas of success.
