“We all have our one-degree moments. A turning point takes us either in the right or, unfortunately, the wrong direction. I have talked to successful people all over the United States and abroad and found that each of them has had a one-degree moment. They were headed down the wrong highway, but someone intervened and helped them correct their course. We all can have that moment of decision, but it is up to each of us to choose to correct our path so we can fulfill what we are created to do,” Gary Wilder states.
In his book titled “One Degree: Unleashing Your Focus” (published by WestBow Press), Dr. Wilder assists readers in getting back on track to achieve their life goals. This book also assists them in getting themselves re-aligned, re-adjusted, and re-directed to attain their purpose, reach their destiny, and unleash their focus.
“During this COVID-19 pandemic, people found themselves off course of their intended goals. This book shows how they can get back on track to obtain the success they initially set for their lives and by simply focusing on their goals to make their mark,” Wilder says. “This book is different because it takes personal stories and shows how each was away from their purpose but were able to get back on track after realizing they were away from their destination. Also, this book journeys through my time in the Marine Corps and my time after retiring from the Corps.”
When asked what he wants to take away from this book, Dr. Wilder answers, “I desire that this book will help you to focus on the future. It does not matter if you are an entrepreneur, business manager, receptionist, nurse, warehouse worker, computer programmer, waitress, or actor. Each of us needs to focus on our destiny. Remember, one degree over a period of years can lead you away from where you desire to go. May something in this book stir your dreams, imagination, and desire to go to the next level in your life.”
