In “Awesome or Average: Vol. 1” (published by Balboa Press), wellness professional and motivational speaker B.M. Selby-Hele brings readers an invigorating, inspirational and up-close view of 50 of the most underappreciated, yet critical, jobs in the modern world. From bricklayer to IT tech to waitress to stay-at-home dad, Selby-Hele shows readers how even in the most average and undervalued of situations, they can still achieve awesome in their lives and work.

Selby-Hele argues that anyone who struggles with motivation and purpose on a daily basis will benefit from these concise, entertaining and insightful vignettes. With the 50 different jobs, Selby-Hele introduces each with a brief, common definition of the profession, then redefines each with its awesome equivalent. For instance, he defines waiter/waitress as “A person—man or woman—who waits on tables, as in a restaurant.” He then goes on to describe the awesome equivalent: “Connoisseur of Cool.” In this example, and for all of the jobs, Selby-Hele adopts the persona of the worker who has chosen to embrace the awesome elements of their job.

He believes everyone can find their awesomeness if they are willing to take the steps to change their thinking. “Make that choice,” says Selby-Hele. “Choose to be awesome no matter what you do or who you are.”
