"Unlike the author, I have not been diagnosed with a life altering disease and have never faced such a great struggle. However, we all have our life plans interrupted and challenges to contend with. As I read, I was transported right in the story and felt a deep connection with the author. I found myself flipping back and forth between the written word and deep self-reflection. This book forced me to feel, not only for the author, but also for myself. I laughed out loud, I cried, I got super pissed-off and I said "me too" (a lot).
I closed the book feeling sad that my life was not as vibrant as it could be and motivated to further examine my life as I continue my journey through the unexpected. This book has been very much a conversation starter for me... and so, the personal growth has continued long after the last page was turned."

The Author

Meet Jon

If you let it, your life will drive itself on autopilot. You can quickly become a spectator instead of the star player. Society, career, relationships, life events… they will all push you.
But is it in the direction that you want to go?
It wasn’t for him.

In the Winter of 2005, Jon was a young newlywed who should have had a bright future--but he didn't. With the days getting shorter, and the hopeless nights becoming stronger, he struggled to hang on. After eight years living with MS, his mouth and mind lost their connection, his hands burned. His walk stilted, fighting any notion of giving up or giving in.

Then, he fell down the stairs. Failed a major test at work. And he gave a speech ending in disaster.

The sun set one winter night, and he couldn’t deny it anymore.

Although he wasn’t sure what would come next, he made a decision. He couldn’t keep up the facade anymore.

Everything wasn't okay.

He had to step off the fast track, even if it meant destroying his career, in favor of his health and wellbeing.

It’s never too late, even when all seems lost.

"I couldn't put this book down. Jon Chandonnet's story of moving through denial and despair to a vibrant life is relevant for all of us. The story of his personal journey reads like a novel. Woven through the story is profound wisdom about the human journey, mixed with provocative and challenging information about new ways to look at diet, exercise and positive mental processes as contributors to living a vibrant life. Though Jon's journey was triggered by a disease diagnosis, this is not a book about illness, but about health, vitality and wholeness. His story of how he had to challenge his own beliefs and habits helps all of us move through our own beliefs and habits. Inspiration on every page."

Jon helped me find targets I couldn't find and opened doors. It have more confidence to focus on what I want. Working with Jon is like talking to a friend who listens and asks thoughtful questions that dive deeper into concerns. I'm more skeptical, cynical, Jon is more optimistic and positive so he helps balance me out.

Breathtaking! This could be a primer for all those who face roadblocks and walls in their life's journey. It is above all well written and can not be put down once it has been started. It is especially poignant for runners, climbers, and all outdoor enthusiasts. Remember this man wakes up every day knowing he has MS and yet pushes that aside and barrels into the day with hope and purpose.

This book couldn't have come at a better time for me. Jon's an old friend from our high school days in Radnor, Pennsylvania. I picked up the book and never put it down. Three days later, I realized that the courage and emotional strength that it took for Jon to realize it was time to make a change. It could not have come at a better time for me as it is not just about money and success but finding your path in the world. What a great read!!

Thought provoking and sincere. I'm not one that really gets into the holistic naturopathic healing thing but found myself engaged right from the start. Jon tells a story that could be any of us: life's going along and BOOM, a life-changing diagnosis.  "There but for the grace of God go I" pretty much sums it up. What sets this story apart is Jon's remarkable  path to meaningfully co-exist with the diagnosis rather than 'overcome' the diagnosis. Jon shows no matter how overwhelming the obstacle, we have the power to make positive decisions and live a VIBRANT LIFE.

Well-written. Like many true to life books the end does not give complete closure. Thanks for sharing your story Jon!

Jon helped me grow my business 100% over the past year. Jon has the combination of vision and action to help me make things happen.

The VIBRANTs offer a clear-cut vision into our fundamental characteristics. With this process, self-reflection becomes more effective and even more truthful. You can single-out the areas of your life which need improvement, strategize on how to get there, and evaluate your progress throughout the way.

It's time. Let's go!
