"Thanks so much for sharing your book and story with me. So much of what you wrote resonated with me. I will admit I read the entire book already. I could not put it down from the minute I received it and I opened it. I was truly moved and even brought to tears a few times. But, I also felt so much joy and inspiration.

I am going to share your book with my two sons. I'm confident they will DECIDE to become the hero of their own lives, like you!


Thank you for this life changing opportunity."

Do you often find yourself struggling with life’s important decisions? Are you waiting for someone to come into your life and guide you on the path to success? Stop waiting and start deciding!


You D.E.C.I.D.E. is both a memoir and a self-help book written to empower you to believe in yourself, inspire you to manage the important decisions to get you through life and motivate you to become the hero of your own life.


Steve Emt was a star athlete, former West Point cadet, and UCONN basketball player; he had everything going for him. He felt invincible until one fateful night in March of 1995 when he blacked out while driving under the influence at 85 mph. He woke up from a coma days later in a hospital bed and began a long, painful journey to recovery, not just physical but also mental, emotional, and spiritual. He would never fully recover physically, as he was paralyzed from the waist down. But he not only recovered but excelled in other ways, going on to finish his degree, become a middle school teacher, high school basketball coach, mentor, 2-time Paralympian, motivational speaker, and now an author. Steve always approached every situation with positive thinking and a determination to succeed. He is not super-human. He just found a method to get through decisions in his life.


In You D.E.C.I.D.E., Steve presents the six-step plan that he used and that anyone can use to excel in their life and become their own hero: Determine, Educate, Create, Implement, Don’t Ever Give Up, and Evaluate. These are the steps of the hero's journey that Steve traveled and that he is challenging you to take. Stop waiting for a hero to arrive…be your own hero!
