When Steve Rizzo left the comedy world at the height of his career, everyone thought he was nuts. He was headlining with such comedy all-stars as Dennis Miller, Eddie Murphy, Drew Carey, Jerry Seinfeld, and Ellen DeGeneres. But Steve felt like there was an even better use for his comedic skills, and became determined to do something meaningful with his stand-up. Now, 14 years later, Steve is a highly successful corporate motivational speaker, reaching well over 50,000 people a year through his talks and weekly Rizzo-Gram e-mails. His message is clear and simple, but delivered with all the hilarity that made him a stand-up success: it’s not what happens to you that will alter your life, it’s how you respond to it that makes all the difference. In other words, shift your attitude.

Get Your SHIFT Together forms the core of Steve Rizzo’s philosophy and is the basis of his successful speaking career. It’s a hilarious and deeply meaningful guide for anyone who is sick and tired of being frustrated with life, and who is ready to make a real change. The key Rizzo reveals is that the shift is internal, which is why his fans call him “The Attitude Adjuster.”

Why was Rodney Dangerfield miserable even at the height of his fame and popularity, while Christopher Reeve, whose life was tragically altered, made a conscious decision to view his life through the eyes of hope, gratitude, and joy? According to Rizzo, once you realize that your day-to-day reality is just a mirror of your inner tape-loop, you can begin to transform any area of your life. Filled with humour and anecdotes from his days in stand-up, Rizzo provides clear and concise steps to show readers how to enjoy the process of day-to-day living instead of railing against it, breaking down emotional and mental barriers that get in the way. As a former comedian, no one can articulate more clearly the need to look at all of life’s obstacles, tragedies, mistakes, and embarrassments from a humorous perspective.
