Best-Selling Motivator Shawn Anderson Inspires "A Better Life"

Shawn Anderson, the founder of Extra Mile America, has published another very inspiring book, "A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over."

Marina del Rey, CA, September 12, 2013 --( Best-selling author and national motivational speaker Shawn Anderson has written a new book for those who desire to reclaim failed goals and aspirations. "A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over" is a fictional story that introduces readers to a mysterious and all-knowing teacher named Amicus who shares twenty-one life-changing lessons.

"If you've ever felt defeated by life's events or if you've ever wished for a start-over, this book is for you," Anderson says. "If you've lost your passion and purpose, no matter what has happened in your life, this book will stoke your fire and re-kindle your confidence that you can live a better life... one that you love."

Anderson doesn't just talk the talk about living a life people love; he lives it. Besides writing six books and being a successful lifetime entrepreneur, Anderson has biked the United States ocean-to-ocean twice, run a 100-mile race, and recently completed a 40-day trip around the world. In 2009, he traveled the United States from San Francisco to Boston looking to hear the "extra mile" stories of two hundred people. At the end of the tour, Anderson personally gave $10,000 to the people whose stories he found most inspirational. He is also the founder of the non-profit Extra Mile America and the creator of "Extra Mile Day"... a day recognizing the capacity each people have to create positive change when they go the extra mile. On November 1, 2013, it is expected that 400 mayors will declare "Extra Mile Day" in their city.

Anderson began motivating people by first learning to motivate himself. After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley with only $300 dollars in the bank and no career-related job offers, Anderson developed a success accountability system called SOAR while working the graveyard shift for $4.00 an hour at a neighborhood convenience store. Years later, he parlayed his winning success formula into the top-selling book, "SOAR to the Top!" Today, Anderson has a life mission of empowering 1,000,000 people to lead a more passionate and purposeful existence.

"The quality of our lives will always be determined by our own effort," Anderson shares. "The book, 'A Better Life,' reinforces the fact that it's never too late for a 'do-over.' If you want to live a life you love, it always begins with the person in the mirror. To me, that's a very powerful thought."
