BOOK CORNER: New book inspires readers to face reality while releasing negativity

Trent Shelton, a former NFL wide receiver, has released his debut book, “The Greatest You: Face Reality, Release Negativity, and Live Your Purpose,” via Thomas Nelson/HarperCollins.

A college football standout, Shelton seemed to have it all together, until everything fell apart. Life seemed without hope until he discovered the secret to finding promise in the darkest times.

“Becoming the greatest me became my mission and I dedicated myself to becoming nothing less,” Shelton said. “Taking my life to the next level was no longer an option; it was a must.”

“Even though your story may have some bad chapters in it, it can still end well,” Shelton said. “But you’re going to have to be real with yourself before you can discover the best version of yourself, the version you were meant to be. It all starts with you.”

Shelton played for the Indianapolis Colts, the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins in a brief NFL career.

“The Greatest You” provides a revolutionary tool kit for transforming life and reaching goals and provides necessary steps to help others face the reality of their circumstances and find their purpose in life. From breaking free from toxic environments and forgiving others who have harmed you, “The Greatest You” addresses the significant need to reexamine life and learning how to guard against the pitfalls of life. 

“This book is a promise,” Shelton said. “A promise to walk with you side-by-side, meeting you where you are as I help you navigate the up’s and down’s of life and propel you to live out your purpose.

A global speaker, Shelton reaches more than 50 million people weekly through his various social media outlets and nonprofit RehabTime organization.

Shelton travels the world sharing his message of creating lasting change in life. He and his wife Maria live in Fort Worth, Texas, with their two children, Tristan and Maya.

“The Greatest You: Face Reality, Release Negativity, and Live Your Purpose” is available wherever books are sold.
