We're All in the Same Boat

Together we can make a difference. 

We're under the same pressures to succeed, to make a difference, deliver results, and inspire change in the world around us. I help people reach into the depths of what’s really important to eliminate problems hiding beneath the surface and rise above the waves to discover more purposeful, passionate, and positive strategies for living.

In the face of unpredictable challenges, I'm here to help people learn how to keep their heads above water when the pressure builds under the waves and rise to their best life in every day.

Have you ever felt as if there was more beneath the surface of your life?

In the book "The Relentless Rise”, R.T. Stokes offers a unique solution to keep your head above water when you feel up to your neck in the waves of life.
He presents key mission-based principles of submerged operation that enable the submarine to achieve success operating under extreme pressures in deep waters and illustrates how we can utilize these same principles to overcome tremendous pressure and rise to new heights in our own lives. 
Hi, I'm R.T. Stokes.

I'm the author of The Relentless Rise, award-winning instructor, and Life Mission Coach. My message focuses on helping people search the depths of their own lives to discover greater significance hidden beneath the surface and to rise to more fulfillment in each day.

I connect concepts from my background as a Navy submarine veteran with my experiences in quality excellence, learning, and personal development to provoke thought, inspire change, and encourage purposeful living.

I believe we should be continuously seeking an uplifted position in our lives as a strategy to operate in the most effective vantage point to overcome the challenges and help others do the same.
