Some people waste their entire lives choosing average, blaming their circumstances for where they are in life. What these people fail to realise is that the same mediocre winds fall upon us all, and our direction is not determined by the blowing of the wind—our happiness is completely controlled by how we set our sails.
In Awesome or Average: Vol. 1, wellness professional and motivational speaker B. M. Selby-Hele brings us an invigorating, inspirational and up-close view of fifty of the most underappreciated, yet critical, jobs in our modern world. From bricklayer to IT tech to waitress to stay-at-home dad, Awesome or Average shows us how even in the most average and undervalued of situations, we can still achieve awesome in our lives and our work.
Anyone who struggles with motivation and purpose on a daily basis will appreciate Selby-Hele’s concise, entertaining and insightful vignettes. With one page per profession, the selections move from their average definition to the fullness of their awesome equivalent. And this awesome equivalent, which is truly no equivalent at all, can be ours if we but take the step. Make that choice. Choose to be awesome no matter what you do or who you are.
