About the Book

“What is the blue vase?” asks author Peter Kyne towards the end of “The Go-Getter,” his classic, inspirational parable about one man’s near impossible quest to secure a blue vase his boss demands to prove his resourcefulness and loyalty. Just as Bill Peck, the hero of the story, has to face his fears, his weaknesses, his insecurities, and inconvenient life circumstances in order to prevail, we also face obstacles like this one every day.

Since we all have blue vases, how do we overcome our fears, limitations and difficult life circumstances?

Sometimes, you don’t know what your blue vase is; other times, you know what it is but may be paralyzed by fear. Counselors are here to help you identify your blue vase and help stir up your inner go-getter to develop a smart strategy to not just locate that blue vase but to chase that one down and identify and go for many others as well.

Go-getters don’t just read about success. They are men and women of action. Now get up and go get it!
