"He had the drive, he had the motivation, and he had the ability to persevere. What Patrick Michaels lacked, however, was the faith to pursue his dreams. The story begins in a Buffalo Hospital where he lies on a gurney after being frantically raced into the emergency room after a spleen rupture. While being transferred to the emergency room for the time-sensitive surgery to take place, Patrick mentally prepares himself for his certain demise. As thirty percent of his body's blood flow begins to seep into his stomach, he begins to hallucinate and flashback to a few final uplifting moments in his life. After somehow surviving this ordeal, where little chance of survival was expected, he begins the long road to recovery. As the recovery process continues, he encounters a severe alcohol dependency, as the effects of his surgery and recent passing of his beloved relatives are too much to bear. With his life is hanging in the balance, he finally makes the decision to pull himself from the depths of despair and depression, in order to save his soul and create a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Ascendance draws on real events of the authors past, both from the mental and physical perspective. Through the law of attraction and success principles obtained, understood, and carefully executed from the best-selling nonfiction novels (The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, and Money: Master the Game by Tony Robbins) Patrick regains his faith in life and in himself, while becoming a successful Finance Professional amidst the shark infested waters of Wall St. and Midtown Manhattan. In Ascendance, Michaels invites readers to join his roller coaster journey towards his "dream scenario" as he offers hope and inspires readers trying to reconnect with their passions and life purpose."--from description.
