Straight from the Mouth of 'Stairway to AWESOMENESS!' Tanya Masse


OH YES I DID Dr. Phil! (Hehe) I’ve done it! I have written a self-help book and established myself as a self-proclaimed “expert” on how to live an awesome life!

And guess what?! I am not EVEN a therapist, a psychologist, a doctor of any sort or an educated mental health professional with any type of degree or designation. My
"credentials" do not come from reading and studying text books, passing exams or graduating with a diploma. They were earned the hard way, the REAL way, through a lot of hardcore living and learning. That is something that cannot be bought or taught.

Life is hard and it isn’t always fair. Sometimes… life is downright INSANE! I have experienced many of life’s seemingly insurmountable blows and for many years I lived a dark, disturbing, depressing, miserable and reckless existence as a result. I wallowed in a sea of self-pity and negativity to the point that I almost drowned. At my lowest, my mental health was so seriously compromised that I didn’t care if I lived or died.

Sounds disturbing, doesn’t it? Well it was. But a few years ago I decided to rise above it all! I changed my way of thinking, stopped setting myself up for failure and reinvented myself into the person that I am today...a strong, happy and positive person and parent who strives to achieve “awesomeness” every day, in every way! And let me tell ya, it wasn’t easy! You want to know why it wasn’t easy? Because I struggled with so many things that I was conditioned to believe… that’s why.

Stairway to Awesomeness is not your average self-help book. It is the ultimate self-improvement book that goes against the grain of many self-help/self-improvement books out there. And I say that with great confidence. I take my readers on my very real tragedy-to-triumph life journey and explain HOW and WHY I changed my way of thinking about many things that so many of us are conditioned to believe. I encourage my readers to focus on the positive, recognize the blessings and find the humor in life instead of taking it way too seriously… even in the face of adversity! The 30 fundamental steps that I write and illustrate about are tried-and-true and life changing. I prove that achieving a life of awesomeness IS possible. There is also a very unique and humorous comic twist throughout the book that will make you smile as you make your own climb to awesomeness!

Since I decided to write this book I have encountered many awesome people that have said “You know, I should write a book about my life too!” or something to that effect. If you have a real-life story that would inspire others be awesome, what are you waiting for? Write it! The world needs more of that!
