Excerpts from Articles About Roy
“Never Beat the Boss at Horseshoes … 102 Ways to Pitch Ringer after Ringer in the Game of Life” was released earlier this year ad tells of "winning in the game of life."
“It's about recognizing life is a game, and that it's a whole lot more fun when you're winning,” he said. “The book is jam-packed with ideas on how to do that.”
Lantz, now 60, beat his boss in horseshoes one sunny Saturday at a company picnic and was unexpectedly terminated the next Friday. He says this led him to the theme of the book.
However, he started developing its principles much earlier, when he served in the Marines as a radio operator.
“Some interesting things happened while I was in the Marines,” Lantz continued. “I learned first, we can't control everything that happens, but you can control your response; and second, you need to expect the best from every situation.”
He may never know the reason for his termination after the round of horseshoes or if it really had anything to do with his boss being a sore loser, but Lantz says he wouldn't have pitched the ringers any other way.
“It's one of those serendipitous things I'm glad happened,” he said. “Otherwise, I wouldn't have had a title for my book.”
Karen Mortensen
Marietta Daily Journal

As an eighth-grader, Roy Lantz was his home- town Optimist Club's Boy of the Year.
His basic take on life hasn't changed.
The motivational sneakier, author and trainer from Marietta has taken his positive spin on life all over the world, conducting seminars and speaking on "winning the game of life."
"I have a real passion for teaching life skills,'' Lantz said. "People don't realize how much they can control their lives."
