A book by
Everything we aspired to for “security”,
everything we thought was “safe”,
no longer is.
Markets have crashed.
Jobs have disappeared.
Industries have been disrupted.
The world is changing
No longer is someone coming
to hire you, to invest in your company,
to sign you, to pick you.
It’s on you to make
the most important decision in your life:
CHOOSE YOURSELF
In prior economic busts,
America’s technological innovation
has buffered the middle class.
There are no more booms on the
horizon that we can latch onto.
But that period is over
We can no longer afford to rely on others
and repeat the same mistakes. The middle
class has caved in, and every industry is in
the process of transformation.
Individuals have to transform also
Is this all doom and gloom?
Of course not.
It’s the decline of institutions that have lied
to us for the past 100-200 years.
It’s actually good news
The rise of corporatism forced people into
cubicles instead of out exploring and
inventing and manifesting.
Human beings
are born pioneers
1
The reality is companies don’t need to hire as
much anymore because technology has
reached its manifest destiny from the pulp
science fiction novels of the 1930s.
Essentially,
robots replaced humans
VS
ZERO sectors in the economy are moving
towards more full-time workers.
We are moving towards a society without
employees. And that’s ok.
More people are finding financial success than ever before
while unemployment or underemployment
has reached upwards of 20%.
It’s a reality that people who
apply the principles in this book
can take advantage of
20%
z z z z z . . .
?
We’re already seeing more startups than ever get
funded and pull business from the corporate
monoliths that have slept for too long. It’s also
not just about being a great entrepreneur.
NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO BE ONE
The best way to help society
is to learn how to
improve yourself
When you improve yourself, the lives of
those around you benefit. That is the way
you create positive change in the world.
The starting point for all of this is developing the inner
perspective that allows you to
choose yourself in the first place
Success by itself won’t bring you happiness,
because you can’t do any of this from a
position of ill health.
12 3
You will have less chances of success in the
Choose Yourself Era
If your body is sick
if you are around negative people
if your idea muscle has not been refined
into a machine
if you haven’t developed a sense of
gratitude and surrender
The ethic of the Choose Yourself Era is to not
depend on the trends that are defeating you.
Instead,build your own platform, have
confidence in yourself instead of a
jury-rigged system, and
define success by your own terms
Understanding the rules of this
Choose Yourself Era
will give you the confidence and skill-set
to go out there and ask the world for your
proper place in it. You will be the beacon that
will enhance the lives of everyone around you.
This is about a new phase in history where
art, science, business, and spirit will join
together in the pursuit of true wealth.
It’s a phase
where ideas are more important
than people and everyone will have to
choose themselves for happiness,
just like I did.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO
WAIT ANY LONGER
for the gods of corporate America,
or universities, or investors, to come down
from the clouds and choose you
for success
In this new era, you have two choices:
Those are your choices
Which side will you be on?
become
a
temp
staffer
become
an
artist
entrepreneur
or
I don’t need to make a dime off of this book. What I really care
about is that as many people as possible read this book.
Here’s how I’m going to do it:
You have to front the purchase price.

I will give you your money back
