About the Author

Daniel A. Miller, a.k.a. Danny Miller, is the author of Losing Control, Finding Serenity: How the Need to Control Hurts Us and How to Let It Go (Ebb & Flow Press, March 2011), which was a Foreward Reviews Book of the Year Award Finalist. Like most compulsive controllers, Danny Miller was always driven to succeed. He graduated from UCLA with honors in business administration and finished in the top 5 percent of his class at the UCLA School of Law. While still in his 20s, he became a popular real estate instructor in the UCLA extension program and a few years later published a critically acclaimed, best-selling professional book, How to Invest in Real Estate Syndicates (Dow Jones-Irwin). He also founded the California Institute of Real Estate Education, which offered state-licensed seminars to thousands of real estate professionals. Financial success came early as well. Celebrities and wealthy people entrusted him with large sums to invest on their behalf. By his mid-30s he could afford to live in the exclusive Old Bel Air section of Los Angeles, only a few doors away from Sylvester Stallone and just up the street from where Elvis Presley had once lived. But for all his achievements and success, Danny had no sense of inner peace and serenity. How could he? He was imprisoned by his fears, anger and anxieties and thus not open to the wonders all around him. It took a long series of personal setbacks, but at last Danny began a new life journey based on letting go of control. He tried to go with the ups and downs and twists and turns of life, instead of resisting them and trying to control people and events. He learned effective tools and techniques for letting go of control in important areas such as family, parenting, love and romance, the creative arts, sports, and the workplace. He became an accomplished fine artist, a published poet, a champion tournament tennis player, a happily married man, and much wiser parent-all while cutting his work time by more than half. Through letting go of control, Danny found a different and more profound kind of success-an internal, core sense of well-being. He now counsels others and writes and speaks about the remarkable benefits of letting go of control.

Reviews

"Daniel A. Miller has done an amazing job in delving deeply into the crevices of how most us would need to be in control, one way or another--in varying degrees--not always realizing how it rules and affects our lives and even more so--the lives and happiness of others.Daniel has clearly lived it, seen the damage, and has learned from it and has designed a formula to teach people how to change these controls by finding, understanding and releasing issues one step at a time. He has created a way of guiding and educating the reader, in a very understandable and logical way, to help everyone "Let Go." A must read for everyone!"--IN LIGHT TIMES"Losing Control, Finding Serenity pinpoints the dangers of excessive control, which goes far beyond setting limits and standards, in all aspects of life. It shows those of us who feel the pressure to control how to break free and reap unexpected gifts.Sharing his journey of transformation from up-tight control driven attorney to life-loving person who works less and earns more, Daniel Miller reveals what happened when he finally decided to "surrender" his blinders fell away, new opportunities emerged, and he experienced unprecedented, profound inner peace.

In a chaotic, unpredictable world that's frequently beyond our control, Losing Control, Finding Serenity offers welcome encouragement and validation for going with the flow of life as it is: an ongoing, ever changing mystery."--The Monthly Aspectarian"This is a book about finding balance between control and surrender. It grew out of the author's personal struggle to manage his life for maximum productivity and profit. As the glittering world he so doggedly built began to collapse around him, he looked for answers and found them in the places where he least expected to. Now he's passing on the techniques he used to successfully rebuild his career and his life on a firmer, less controlled foundation. Down-to-earth and honest, the book is full of psychological and spiritual insight. It is also full of real world solutions for reconnecting with the natural flow of life and with our personal truth.This book will be terrific for twelve-steppers who are just beginning to work with the program."--New Age Retailer Magazine"Miller explores the dangerous elements of control, fear & avoidance, guiding us through the lessons he has learned as he shares his secrets.... and bravely holds nothing back. Dedicated to helping others face their fears, no matter how intense, Losing Control, Finding Serenity is poetic, philosophical and unselfish; a guidebook to true success, happiness and peace of mind-an empowering collection of modern philosophy by a profoundly inspiring writer."--Examiner.Com"There are a lot of great books out there on self-help and I'm sure many are focused on this very same topic, but the guidance offered by Miller is this book is something I'd recommend to anyone struggling with control issues in his or her life. Even if it's not you personally struggling with control, a lot can be learned from reading about what it's like to have issues with control -- and how you can help yourself and others cope with these issues."--Positively Present
