“Oh SLAP! My Choices Determine My Destiny!: The #1 Guide to Making Better Decisions and Living a Self Empowered Life,” by Lori Gentles, is a new book that inspires readers to lead their best lives.

“It serves as a reflective mirror for the reader, helping them wake up to their greatness and divine purpose and to stop blaming, whining and complaining about their plight in life,” Gentles said.

The book was inspired by the author’s desire to help others change their state of being and acknowledge the power of choice.

“Being in the people business, I got tired of watching brilliant people, ignore their brilliance and God-given talents, adopting the pessimistic herd mentality,” Gentles said. “I was inspired to paint a different portrait; one of possibilities instead of negativities, one of hope to counter the ‘Nope it can’t happen’ narrative, and one of choice to remind individuals that they are empowered to lead their own lives.”

Inside the book, readers are presented with content that challenges them to make intelligent choices and to take responsibility for their actions. There are speaking, writing and reflective prompts included as well.

The book can help change the lives of readers as it challenges them to make “intelligent, inspired, intentional, individual choice, and to take total personal responsibility for their outcomes.”

It’s the author’s hope that readers of her book gain a broader perspective that will enable them to see more choices, possibilities, and actions that can be taken to improve their lives.

“The content touches the core and the spirit,” Gentles said. “Readers may want to reject notions of personal responsibility and may in fact choose to not take action, but the knowledge that it can be done will have been conveyed.”

In addition to being an author, Gentles has a career in human resources. She is also an inspirational speaker, educator and CEO of the Choices Company. Gentles lives in Los Angeles.
