I'm the guy that grew up without the right advice and thought I had to do everyone on my own. Left college behind before I graduated to become an entrepreneur. Failed until one day I figured out that I needed to ask for help. I found a mentor once I was open to new ideas and putting my own past experiences behind.
Learned to grow with the help of others and now a full-time laptop and smart phone traveler.

Marion, Greatly Influenced by her grand parents she thrives on enriching others lives by inspiring and shifting their perspectives to living in a beautiful state.

Her maternal grandmother always told her she was going to be "a healer" . To Marion that meant a profession in healthcare. She had a strong love for Psychology; wondering why people thought the things they did and why.

The last 20 years practicing as a Registered Nurse she got to know herself and heal through client experiences. Her curiosity fulfilled the need to just say YES to create a life experience. Now a proclaimed author. She learned to let go, became vulnerable, free and finally at peace with a moment in her life that she realized kept showing up as patterns.

Thanks to my paternal Grandmother, Mama Ely , she does exactly that. "My mission is to inspire. I am my most fulfilled when I am serving. I remind people that their true essence is deep in their core. The purpose you seek in life... is within you. Its never left. Remember what brought you here today. Its to be in service of anything other than you. And the magic happens.

So what the heck... Just say YES.
The worse case scenario is you'll have a time of your life!"

Synopsis

Eleven stories of ordinary people choosing extraordinary lives.

We are all born with an extraordinary gift, the gift of choice, but so many of us either don’t see it or use it nearly enough. We choose from what’s in front of us, which is not always the best thing, even if it’s a good thing. We “choose” through life by what’s apparent or by default fall back on patterns we learned that might not be good for us.

In The Choice, we get a rare glimpse into the lives of eleven people who lead extraordinary lives. With varied backgrounds, beliefs, professions, financial success, and family situations, we see how a particular choice each author makes led them to lives of abundance in purpose, finance, freedom, and fulfilment, all while living for others as well as themselves.

Once you’ve read The Choice, you too, should recognize you have choices in places you never suspected, that some are hard and some are easy, but they are in fact choices and we are free to make them, and you are free today to choose what your life will look and feel like tomorrow.

Anyone who has gone down a path of tragedy, societal expectation, convenience, and even great success, has to make choices about the future. We want all who read this engaging book to see a little bit better how they too can lead lives of abundance and fulfilment, and that the secret lies within, in our birthright of the choice.

Outline

·      Prologue ~ Change the World by Brad Hart: A poem by speaker and thought leader Brad Hart, founder of Make More Marbles, that sets the stage for The Choice

·      Introduction: Reflections on what the choice is by writer Rodney Miles

·      [ 1 ] Light Me Up by Brad Hart: Personal story of a financial prodigy choosing relationships over money alone, and how that led to a life of abundant purpose.

·      [ 2 ] Beyond Your Craft by Yuri Cataldo: Personal story of writer, speaker, and entrepreneur who pioneered a course in entrepreneurship for artists in ivy-league settings.

·      [ 3 ] The Underdog by Brenda Fairchild: Personal story of accomplished doctor who ignored the odds and stereotypes to achieve natural healing for her patients, and her own child as well.

·      [ 4 ] Trail of Breadcrumbs by Phill Ash: How a gifted thinker who wins weightlifting and memory competitions made a breakthrough in learning, and another in his own life.

·      [ 5 ] A Shift in Life by Anton Liberopoulis: Personal story of how communication challenges while young led to professional speaking and training today, and to a life of making connections for himself and others that create extraordinary lives and experiences for us all.

·      [ 6 ] Bridging the Gap by Chad Crowell: Personal story of how a third-generation technology buff recognized a pattern of discontent in life he now cures for others, with special attention on the phases a choice can go through, and which lead to fulfilment.

·      [ 7 ] Living in Awe by Marion Ejan: Personal story of breaking through family challenges and cultural expectations to reaching great heights professionally, but perhaps even more importantly, to connecting with the awe in life, seeing through a new lens, and enjoying a full heart.

·      [ 8 ] First Wakeups by Ryan Charaba: Personal story about standing up to a massive institution, its rules and expectations, and coming back from a point of giving up to living a life in paradise and instructing others on creating their own happiness.

·      [ 9 ] Choose Joy! By Gretchen Stewart: Personal story of overcoming a chronic physical challenge and how that led to connecting with living fully and finding one’s potential, and then sharing that joy as a speaker, author, and retreat leader.

·      [ 10 ] Greener Acres by Jason Graciano: Personal story of rising from harsh inner-city conditions to great success and wealth now shared with school children and adults who want more from life, while revamping the former negative branding of a whole profession.

·      [ 11 ] As My Heart Sings by Delina Fajardo: Intimate look at how a single childhood experience exposed a (conceived) frailty that set the direction for a life of respect and success but without fulfilment, how this was repaired, and what factors led to choosing a life of abundant purpose for this best-selling author, transformational coach, and speaker.

·      Conclusion: Reflections on the power of choosing demonstrated in the personal stories and what this means for us today, moving forward.

·      About the Choice: Behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of The Choice.

·      About the Authors: One-page bios of each author and what they do today.

·      About the Writer

Audience

The Choice is for those who either recognize or sense that they are not all they can be today, that there is more in life. They might struggle or excel in their personal, professional, or financial lives, but sense there could be more. The Choice demonstrates to these very people that no matter where you are in life, if you are not completely fulfilled, you have choices probably in places and times you did not think you had them, and the book even suggests by survey of the authors, what kinds of choices lead to abundance and fulfilment. There is more in life, and The Choice demonstrates how they can reach it. The Choice is about being happy. 

According to a Huffington Post poll, “Americans over the age of 50 are more likely to be very happy (36 of those ages 50-64, and 41 percent of adults ages 65+) than young people (31 percent of ages 18-24, 30 percent of ages 25-29, and 28 percent of ages 30-39) 

[Source: www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/01/happiness-index-only-1-in_n_3354524.html],” so those in the ages of 30-39 are the best prospects for the book, especially those seeking or experiencing a relationship or career change, as “There are three main things that make people happy: close relationships, a job or past-time that they love and helping others. [Source: study.com/academy/lesson/research-on-happiness-what-makes-people-happy.html].” The Choice anecdotally demonstrates how to achieve all three

Promotion

With eleven authors, each of whom represent sizable followings, whether it’s a professional client list, social media following, regular podcasts, releasing books, professional speaking, or leading large groups, the authors of The Choice represent tens of thousands of existing fans and followers and have in the main already mastered contemporary methods of mass communication. 

Each author has a contact information provided in the back of the book that lead to respective websites and platforms studded with scheduled speaking and leadership engagements, endorsements and influential connections, and current plans to continue publishing, speaking, and appearing.  The Choice is ripe for success as a published book, even upon it’s announced pre-release. Coordinated promotional plans and efforts are already in the making, and include seeking celebrity involvement by endorsement and Foreword

Competition

The Choice fits neatly into a gap in the self-development niche, providing an easy to understand and very actionable message to readers. That these readers buy books, buy a lot of them, and create viral waves of sales is obvious by comparison with books with similar messages and formats:

1.     Chicken Soup for the Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen. By comparison The Choice embarks upon the same personal, anecdotal journey readers love and then enjoy applying to their own lives. We learn by comparison and analogy, and the story-oriented structure of The Choice fits nicely in this same genre.

2.     The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, which “was translated into over fifty languages and remains one of the longest-running bestsellers of this century.” The Choice as a title not only rings harmoniously with a title like The Secret, but upon initial exposure creates a similar sense of mystery and wonder, enticing readers to read. And once a reader begins turning pages they soon discover a similar message, that the conditions of one’s life are under one’s control to a degree perhaps larger than previously thought, but evidenced by each author’s story.

3.     The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. The simplicity and broad appeal of The Choice is akin to the appeal—and instant mystery—of The Secret as well as The Five Love Languages, and like both, lends itself to easy and obvious serialization. A publisher, then, is not investing in solely one title, but potentially creating a relationship with a successful franchise that can be applied to sub-niches (The Choice for Teenagers, The Choice in Love & Relationships, The Choice in Business, and so on). 

Further, the authors include established leaders, speakers, and writers with established lists of followers, readers, and fans. Their entrance into publishing and the public eye is already either begun or well established in many cases. There will be more books!

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

Gladiator Publishing Company logo Gladiator Publishing Company

Gladiator Publishing Co. has held a reputation in the Literary Industry for nearly 100 Years as a Writer-Loyal company. Nearly 100-years later, Gladiator Publishing Company still maintains that strong characteristic. We place our Authors publications first and foremost. You may hear many other "Publishing entities" state that they are "the first" to do this or the "originator/pioneer" of that. If everyone is using the same marketing, promotional, and advertising pipelines what makes them so original?

As the proud recipients of six-awards in 2018 for our innovative marketing techniques, media outreach, extremely low budget compared to the Global Industry Standard (72-83% cheaper), and an Author-inclusive style, it is no wonder we are the #1 Requested Publishing Service on the East Coast. We are staffed with industry-specific professionals that are dedicated to market and brand development.

Full Editing Services (substantive, copy, formatting, proofreading, story flow, line) are INCLUDED in the price. No hidden fees, no extra cost for something that Publishing Services should be more than happy to provide to benefit the manuscripts success. The industry has turned toward greed and away from literature. It's sick and inappropriate, it's ok to agree, they know it too.

Introduction

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

—CONFUCIUS

CHOICE IS THE MOST BASIC UNIT of freewill. Freewill is a potential, a limited human right, a vital component of sanity and happiness, and choice is how that potential manifests in the universe we share. Some choices are easy to see—those that are announced or arrived at verbally, and others are (almost) silent, appearing like the birth of an electron, known only at first to the beholder. But whether bold and brash or silent and small, the birth of a choice is a fundamental determinant of things to come, for one life and at times for millions. How important is choice? People are instinctively willing to die for it.

There are breakthroughs in thought in this book. One is that as life moves around us we react, defaulting to our training, experience, calculations for survival, our hopes and goals and purposes, and according to the subliminal blueprint we copied from our examples growing up and otherwise, but within that moment where we normally react and default to preset patterns—some of us with empowering ones and others otherwise—is an opportunity for a choice. We can choose our perspectives—it’s part of the magic of our psyche, of our spirituality—and sometimes we can simply start enjoying that chosen perspective, and sometimes we have to work at it for a while. Whole categories of study have been devoted to revealing, changing, and at times breaking those patterns.

Another breakthrough is what choices seem to work out so well. In many of the personal stories that follow, the author had financial success, but lacked fulfillment. The Choice shows how choosing to live for others as well as yourself leads not only to greater purpose, fulfillment, and happiness, but even, they would argue, continued and sometimes improved financial success. And sometimes it’s simply a trade-off well worth making.

It’s realizing you have a choice, even when it seems you don’t; that choices, not luck, lead to extraordinary living; and choosing to live for others as well as yourself leads to fulfillment and greater success.

There are evidences all over American life that we are learning to live better, to include each other more, to focus on what’s important and to recognize and eschew useless or harmful pretenses. Going into debt for the “prestige” of conspicuous consumption and how it leads to stress, financial hardship, divorce, toxic households, squandered time which could have been spent with family and friends, and even a weakening of the country has been exposed. Look at the popularity of speakers and mentors of financial savvy and the tiny house movement, for examples. Look at the survey which revealed the number one regret of people on their deathbeds was “working too much.” If only they could go back and spend more time, have more experiences with the ones they loved.

Across most if not all religions, in the depths of human nature, and as one of the most basic of self-evident truths, we have a birthright in the universal and innate ability to choose. Precious. Powerful. Beautiful. Yet we all, at one time or another, and to one degree or another, neglect this magical human capacity. The people in this book who are about to share their stories vary in walks of life, age, sex, race, even creed and philosophy, but they all have at least a few important things in common: They all, in one way or another, lead extraordinary lives, and they all, as you will see, value fulfillment, purpose, love, and the care of others along with personal financial and professional success—I would go as far as to say they each have discovered they do better for themselves only and perhaps in proportion to how and when they do for others as well. That was one of the most profound epiphanies for me, as the person compiling and writing their stories.

They each chose to do something in life that lights them up, and as a result, others light up, too.
