Ride the Elephant

The Journey to True Success

Ride the Elephant presents timely leadership concepts that this world desperately needs. That our kids need! 

Ray McKinley calls out the elephant in the room that holds us back, that has been hiding in plain sight, then challenges us with questions and answers we have never considered before.

You will dive very deep, if you allow yourself to go that far, into why we act, think and behave as we do. You will likely see that today’s normal daily reactions are really creating a waterfall event with those around you.

The interplay of so many feelings and reactions like hate, blame, excuses, accountability, judgment, fear, and pride are examined. You will begin to consider how this juxtaposition of emotions are creating havoc in your life – like “the elephant in the room.”


Watching Ray McKinley’s vision for a deeply meaningful, life-changing class, and now book, come to fruition has been inspiring as graduates continue to report that it’s “the best class I’ve ever taken.”

Even more inspiring is watching Ray live his own life fully committed to the ideals he shares in the classroom and in this book. Countless lives have been transformed already, and this book ensures that countless more will be impacted in the generations to come.

YES! The material covered in this book is life changing! It was for me as it will be for you.

Read this book and begin to plan your life purposefully. To have the confidence, knowledge, and the tools to act as a guide as you ride the elephant in “the jungle of life.” With the intent to grow, heal, change and make a significant impact on those around you.

However, do not start this book, if this is not the right time. Be honest with yourself about being truly open to change. Save it for when you are ready to begin processing and integrating the books concepts into your life.

If you do take this book on, and I hope you do, you will never regret it. You will refer to these concepts often, as you share them in your conversations, and realize that you will look back and say… “My life will never be the same!”
