“You may find yourself to be out of tune with life, but you aren’t. As every journey has a hero, you are the hero of yours. You just have to be willing to take the risk and realize your fullest potential.” – Benjamin David, Our Hero Within.
Follow along as Benjamin David recalls his incredible true story in “Our Hero Within”.
As a survivor of child abuse & feeling “lost in life”, he begins his story as a 17-year-old boy having just left Mexico after spending 6 months in Casa By The Sea, a notoriously corrupt behavior modification school ran by the WWASPS organization and takes you through a sobering journey of what it’s like to grow up from the age of 17 to 23 inside a West Texas maximum security prison unit.
Through his raw storytelling style and holding nothing back, he opens up to the reader by retelling personal events in his life that would ultimately lead up to his most profound transformative moment. A Moment he believes we all have at some point in our lives, something he calls “The Twin Sun Moment.”
Not Just another “lost teens memoir” about finding yourself, Our Hero Within is a part coming-of-age story, part practical advice manual for discovering your true self.
By using what he learned while in prison from reading books on spirituality and psychology and combining that with his many years as a sports nutritionist and successful fitness specialist there-after, Benjamin, in Our Hero Within, offers you the full spectrum of “Mind, Body & Soul” healing to help you fuel and empower your journey to come.
“Most people wander around through life as if they are some sort of unexplainable miracle or accident, but the truth is, is that no one is an accident. You don’t have to be. We’re all here with a purpose. We just have to have faith as we figure out what that is.” – Benjamin David, Our Hero Within.

“One of the most inspirational books I have ever read! My favorite part in the book is where you started practicing pull ups in mexico everyday just to get a glimpse of the ocean. In my most difficult times, it gives me strength to push a little further… it reminds me of why I’m enduring the pain of discipline to seek sweeter rewards… and most importantly it makes me appreciate what I have and live in the moment. A must read!” – Ramona Fernandez
“I could not put this book down. I read it in 3 days. How you wrote your story of struggle was so real and your willingness to put it all on the line and be vulnerable made me feel like I was right there with you.” – Jennifer Chambard
“Ben, I wanted to reach out because I just finished reading your book, “Our Hero Within” on Wattpad. I was really impacted by it- I could barely put it down! Your story left me slack-jawed. Your experiences seem like they could be made into a thriller movie! I did not expect it to also contain any of the practical knowledge you included on neuroplasticity, brain chemistry, nutrition and fitness. The way you put it all together alongside your personal narrative and martial arts philosophy was brilliant and moving. Thank you so much for sharing your story!” – David G.
