In the prime of his life, amid a soaring career, Chuck Gallagher made some poor ethical choices that landed him behind bars. In this deeply personal and compelling book, he comes clean about his life-changing experience. Although Chuck’s prison was a physical one, he reveals how some of us unknowingly create our own “prisons” through the negative choices we make and how the consequences of those decisions impact happiness and success in every aspect of our lives. There is no obstacle that cannot be overcome. That statement is powerful, but the power of the human spirit transcends anything placed before it. The power to achieve and the power to overcome grow from internal desire. Whether the desire to achieve, succeed, become empowered, or help others, whatever our heart desires can become reality if only we focus our energy and choices in that direction. To be clear, "Second Chances" is a compelling straight forward dose of reality leading it's readers to a path to success. There are no free lunches. Whether the adversity you might face reslts in a loss of your marriage, family, possessions, or your freedom, as it did for Chuck Gallagher, the reality his hope. The choices you make while in the midst of your deepest, darkest despair, some call this the dark night of the soul, may be the very choices that bring you to greatest reward in the future. Every choices has a consequence and good choices have the power to bring positive outcomes.
