Comedian, public speaker, and now author, Rizzo, while wrestling with his own demons, shares insights he gained from a series of experiences that changed his values and beliefs and his life's path - "fame and fortune" were no longer important goals. Complete surrender followed and once his spirit was freed, Rizzo felt guided by a higher power to use his gifts, knowledge, and experience to help others struggling with life.
In recent years, Rizzo has been traveling around the country, sharing his insights and gift of humor to inspire others. Now he provides this same inspiration in "Get Your Shift Together."
In this book, you will learn how to shift:
* Your thoughts to positive.
* Your mindset to happy.
* Your personal conversations to engaging.
* Your family interactions to enjoyment.
* Your job and career aspirations to advancement.
* Your life from where you are now to success and fulfillment.
Through his own and other people's (Eddie Murphy, Naomi Judd, and others) stories, Rizzo shares how the power of shifting one's focus and way of thinking can affect one's perception of challenging circumstances, and even life's tragedies, literally training yourself to become a happier, more confident, and successful person, on all levels of life.
"Getting Your Shift Together" is organized around four key subject areas: 1.Read more ›
And by the end of reading it, you still think about it, wanting a little more? Well, this book is one of those...
You'll laugh, cry and laugh some more while learning how to cope with life differently and actually enjoy it. I really hated to see this book end. I'm an avid reader on the subject of self-help and I have to say this book is one of the best. A book that can make me laugh while learning is priceless.
For starters, it is so entertaining.
Written by Steve Rizzo, the former stand-up comic, he has this natural and genuine way of pulling you into his personal life, his heartfelt stories and his easy to apply strategies that anyone can relate to, want to follow and apply right away.
Whether you're a CEO of a hugely successful corporation, a big time surgeon or
a small town girl (like me), this book shows how you can flip your life's challenges into something positive if you'll just choose to. It's that simple. Humor is one of those God-given gifts we need to use more often and Steve shows you how.
Another reason I loved this book is because it's honestly hilarious and so easy to read. Not a bunch of fluff or stuff you don't need. Just straightforward, great stories and at the same time, very personal. I felt like I was reading something from a very good friend who I trust.
He also teaches about enjoying the process of whatever you are trying to achieve. Many self-help programs and books have left this part out. What a great concept and a way to live. That's a definite take away from this book.
One of the things that stood out most for me was reading the opener about who Steve Rizzo is.Read more ›
As you might expect from a comedian, there is a fair amount of humor in this book. But there is also some very serious advice on how to create a shift in the way you think so you can bring about the changes you need to create the life you want.
One of the central themes of Mr. Rizzo's teachings is that your attitude has a huge influence over your life. A positive attitude will reflect positively on all aspects of your life. A negative attitude will have the opposite effect. He is a strong believer that a positive attitude is essential to living the good life.
He emphasizes the term shift throughout the book. Often when people think of making improvement in their lives, they think of all the things they need to change. Change creates fear. Mr. Rizzo suggests that you think in terms of making shifts in your life. While the end result is the same, the way you approach it is different. If thinking in terms of a shift helps you make the shift, then it makes sense to follow that path.
Mr. Rizzo also advocates being a "humor being" - that is having a sense of humor. When things look bleak, inject some humor in your life. Doing so will change the chemical make-up of your brain and will help you cope with any adversity you are experiencing.
If you are a student of self-help books, the material in this book will be fairly familiar to you.Read more ›

Loved this book. Steve Rizzo's examples are amazing and really are making a difference in my attitude and in my life.Published on August 5, 2013 by Andrea Sinara Cruz
The book is good, but could be a bit less abstract. I would like a little bit more of a cook book approach. I think Rizzo is very close to nailing it.Published on June 24, 2013 by Brad Hagan
