Word to the Wise

~The power of perception~

Press Release

 Do you have dreams? Do you feel like they are within your reach? A lot of people want to accomplish something but so many factors are holding them back. Whether it's a deeply rooted lack of belief in oneself, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, or a chorus of naysayers, I want to show you how you can rise above the negativity. Perceptions can make or break us; if we learn to make the most of perceptions, we can achieve and succeed in anything. Self-help books might show you why you think or act in a certain way, but my book is a guide to believing in yourself and others. It doesn't matter if you were born with a disability or a silver spoon. Everyone is different, and it is in sharing our experiences that we can move toward our goals. I believe that each person who reads this book will find something meaningful that can be applied as we traverse this interesting journey called life.

if not more - capable of drawing inspiration from those who succeed despite having the odds stacked against them. I suspected my story would inspire people with disabilities, but I underestimated the response I would get from people without them.


You never get a second chance to make a first impression." Surely you've heard this quote before. Its exact origin is the subject of much debate, but no one disputes its validity.
Whether you think that the current educational system is good or bad, you cannot deny that there is room for improvement. Although it garners a fair amount of criticism, the system is also doing a lot of things right. However, one thing that I think everyone can agree on is that some positive changes are long overdue.
Another big problem facing modern society is violence. Right now we hear about violence in the news every day. There are so many horrific crimes, people shooting up movie theaters, kids shooting up schools. Society is starting to crumble, and I feel this is in large part due to the lack of communication and empathy.

Author's Notes

My main desire in writing anything and publishing it for the masses is to reach people. I feel that if I can reach one person and help that person understand and take my words to heart, I have done my job as an author. Most authors will say that writing will not make you rich unless you get lucky and come up with a best seller; I beg to differ. My first book has left me feeling like a millionaire because I have reached so many people and touched so many lives. I hope I can continue helping and inspiring others through my writing.

"Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are." — Norman Vincent Peale


Christopher Thomas Dwight Major Jones is the son of Major and Sherry Jones. He attended school in Winona, Texas, a little town near Tyler, Texas where he was born on December 18, 1983. In 2002, Christopher graduated high school in Winona, Texas and continued his education at the Texas State Technical College in Marshall, Texas. After 6 years at the college, Christopher received his associate’s degree in Software Engineering.

Then in 2008, after successfully completing his studies in Computer Information Systems at Texas A&M University in Commerce, Texas, Christopher received his Bachelor’s degree. Following his undergraduate studies, he worked in the field of Computer Science as an Application Web Developer, which led to his enrollment into the Master's program in Computer Science there at Texas A&M University.

Shortly after graduation in 2010 with his Master Degree in hand and still at Texas A&M, Christopher began exploring his computer background. He combined his hardware and software experiences which led to his research and development of new ideas. Christopher started to prototype a device that would store energy and also help the environment by harvesting the energy using a microcontroller. He developed a sensor node capable of running any type of code while maintaining its efficiency in energy harvesting. In 2010, Christopher applied for a patent on ideas and concept of a new efficient way to store power in a rechargeable environment. The patent is currently pending in the United States Patent Office while Christopher is currently working on his PHD and teaching at Texas A&M University.
