NEW book:

RIGHT NOW: Mastering the Beauty of the Present Moment

Now available on Amazon HERE

     Steve Chandler's Right Now is his inspiring sequel to the brutally honest story of his addiction recovery, Death Wish.

    With his characteristically short, impactful chapters strung together like a chain reaction, Chandler brings us back to the source of all creation and joy: the present moment. We are left not only with a deep appreciation of the beauty of the "now," but also with many highly-motivating insights into actions we can take RIGHT NOW that we used to think would take a lot of endless preparation and "inner processing."

     Like his bestseller Time Warrior, this book was written to be an antidote to procrastination and worried obsessions about our negative imaginary future. Not only does the skill of living in the moment not make you a couch potato, it actually supplies you with energy you didn't know you had.

    "I wrote this book during the most active time of the Death Wish project," said Chandler. "We had been shipping copies of that book to treatment centers, addiction counselors, prisons and schools and receiving heartfelt feedback on how a simple book can move people to see life from a place of greater hope and optimism. I wanted to write a book during that uplifting time in my life that expressed the hidden energy contained in the present moment...the infinite creative potential of it."

     Based on his decades of experience as a corporate trainer and business coach, plus the improbable journey his own life has taken from addiction, divorce and bankruptcy, Right Now is short on theories and strategies but long on real world experience.

    "I had actually decided after Death Wish to retire from writing," Chandler said. "I couldn't think of anything else I wanted to say. And there were more than enough books by me out there in the world. But one morning I woke up, and then woke up again. I had just dreamed of a book cover that said RIGHT NOW and I realized that I had to write it. The idea was simple: There are things you can do right now. And there's a joy you can feel right now."

"Death Wish…could not put it down until the very last drop.

A eulogy to be sung at ego’s funeral. GOD, Good Ole Death.

'Wanting to thrive, to flourish, to expand upward and outward in a joyful spiral of release is evolutionary.'
Your book will help to evolve our species.

My soul is vibrating, and for that I thank you.

I am already giving your ode to the glorious life to friends, with the echo of my laughter and tears."

What Kind of Fool Am I?

August 10, 2017


   Last year at the Reinventing Yourself Weekend I was happy one of the evenings to go up in front of the room and sing some songs. I'm not a professional singer but I love to sing especially when it borders on being "entertaining."

Ricky Nelson  Poor Little Fool   I can make a fool of myself quite easily. In fact, one of the songs I'm going to sing this weekend at the Weekend is a medley people like called "Serial Fool" ... a mix of songs that all sing about being a fool.

   Reinventing Yourself Weekend tends to bring that out in everyone...that impulse to be okay with being foolish and imperfect. So I am urging you to come experience the Weekend this year: find more info here: Reinventing Yourself Weekend 2017

   Also my new book will come out that weekend and will be given to all of you. It's called Right Now, and here's a little preview from it...speaking of being okay with being perceived as a fool:

   Not long ago I listened to a webinar wherein one of my favorite authors and teachers Dr. George Pransky talked about his early days of going into organizations to teach them his psychological principles that led to greater performance, productivity and morale.

   There were many times when he was at a loss for what to say to his audience. Learning about the nature of thought and about the importance of their employees’ state of mind seemed off-subject. The group wasn’t getting how his teaching related to performance and their team’s productivity. Telling the story, Pransky laughed and said, “We were in over our heads!” But that didn’t stop him. He hung in there until they got it. They needed those breakthroughs right now. They didn’t have the luxury of waiting until he was fully prepared to connect with them.

   He also didn’t see anything wrong with being in over his head. The opportunity to make a difference was right now, not in some overly-prepared, guaranteed-outcome future. (That future we’re all looking for.)

   My friend Fred Knipe who is a genius songwriter and a wildly entertaining comedian created a comic persona named Dr. Ludiker. The humor of Ludiker is in how unqualified (and unprepared) he is to give advice. Yet he gives it freely and buoyantly even though the advice is all bizarre and hilariously incorrect. Audiences love this character. I think they are almost shocked at his character’s childish arrogance in delivering wisdom based on nothing. They love someone being that unprepared and still pressing on with wild unjustified confidence. Always in over his head! They laugh long into the night when Fred performs. His act is in great demand.

   Dr. Ludiker is like the Charles Dickens character Pickwick, who, in the words of G.K. Chesterton, “… goes through life with that godlike gullibility which is the key to all adventures.  The greenhorn is the ultimate victor in everything.  It is he that gets the most out of life….  His soul will never starve for exploits or excitements who is wise enough to be made a fool of.”

   AGAIN:  Reinventing Yourself Weekend 2017    SEE YOU THERE!
