Another Chance - Where Would You Be Without One?



Another Chance picks up where the books The Secret, Purpose Driven Life, and Conversations With God leave off. Though those books are wonderful, Dr. D Ivan Young’s Another Chance…Where would you be without one… satisfies many of the questions they left unanswered.


Where other spiritual and self-help books and inspiring speakers seek simply to motivate you, Dr. D Ivan Young’s – Another Chance…Where Would You Be Without One! – helps you to master the tools necessary for living a profoundly extraordinary life. Why is Another Chance different than your average inspiring speakers or books? Another Chance teaches you how to create new and transformative thought patterns while eliminating unproductive and recurring habits. He provides user-friendly tools that transcend religious rituals, surpass “name it and claim it” metaphysics, and permanently opens the door for you to connect with the unseen forces that govern every aspect of your life.


With a fresh perspective and a no-nonsense delivery, Dr. D Ivan Young’s Another Chance…Where Would You Be Without One!, answers the questions the others left up in the air.


  • Is there a God? If there is, why do bad things happen to good people like me?
  • Why can’t I distinguish my inner voice from the voice of my fears and memories?
  • How can I tap into my hidden abilities and make them work for me?
  • How do I know if I’m on the right track?
  • When vision boards don’t work; when “name it and claim it” fails; when I pray and I feel my prayers aren’t getting answered, what do I do?
  • Why am I not making progress in my life?
  • How do I remove the stumbling blocks from my life?
  • How do I get God’s attention and keep it?
  • How can break a generational curse?
  • How do I get my family back?
  • How can I regain the trust of those whom I’ve betrayed?
  • How do I start over?


Chapter 1: Leaving the Comfort Zone – Far More Than A First Step


Life is series of choices; some good, some bad, some right, and some wrong. Whatever the case, those choices landed you right where you are today. The sooner you come to grips with this reality, the better. It isn’t good, nor is it bad; it just is what it is. The good news, however, is that those choices brought you to this moment and prepared you to take full advantage of it. You see, until you reached the conclusion that you deserved a second shot at life, you couldn’t honestly believe anyone else would. Why would anyone else be inclined to give you Another Chance if you didn’t feel you deserved the same thing? Another way to put this is, until you forgive you, and truly start accepting and believing in yourself, there’s no way in hell anyone else would, could, or should either. In this chapter Dr. Young teaches you how to understand the purpose of your current circumstances while showing you how to benefit from them.


Chapter 2: Starting from Scratch – And You Thought It Was A Curse


Seldom does anyone just pop out of bed saying, “Let me get my **** together today.” If only it were that simple, but it isn’t. The truth is, most people need to lose something first, something they took for granted, before they heed life’s wake-up call. I call it the TUI-SOYB Effect, which stands for The Universe Is Sick Of Your B.S. If you are like most people, frustration, circumstances, and failure forced you to raise the white flag. On average it takes a combination of loss, embarrassment, shame, and guilt for most people to finally come to the realization that they had better give up their old ways of thinking and behaving. After bumping your head for the second or third; perhaps even fourth or fifth time, fate has coerced you into accepting the fact that if you don’t immediately change how you live your life, you won’t have a life. Chapter two provides the tools you need to permanently change your thought process.


Chapter 3: Everything Happens for a Reason – You’re Not Alone


I assure you, the fact that you’re thinking about the content of your life at this moment in time is not by chance. Nor is it a coincidence; it’s not happenstance; and it certainly is not an accident. You got this wakeup call when you did for a reason. Your Creator is undergirding your evolution. Take into account all of the things you pay attention to right now that never concerned you before. You are becoming increasingly aware that every significant thing taking place in your life right now is happening for a reason. Whether you accept it or not, divine forces ARE working on your behalf. You are not alone in this. Chapter three provides proof that un-seen forces are working diligently on your behalf; it gives you step by step instructions on how to connect with the divine part of you.


Chapter 4: On the First Day – Whose Image?


There are no magic spells, incantations, amulets, or candles you can burn that will bring forth a window of opportunity in your life. Waiting, wanting, praying, and wishing for the right set of circumstances to magically appear on the horizon is equivalent to using sorcery as a substitute for taking a bath. After you finish chanting magic words over your private parts and underarms, you will quickly come to the realization that you still stink. For you to have a snowball’s chance in hell at being successful, you’ve got to do more than talk; you will need a useable blueprint and a sound methodology accompanied by consistent effort. Chapter four provides a 7 step plan for restoration. The course of action outlined in this chapter you will permanently eliminate self-defeating thought processes and behaviors.


Chapter 5: The Law is On Your Side


Without rules of order and laws, humankind would subsist in a state of reckless abandonment. Furthermore, if one does not possess the greater interpretation, which is the spirit of the law, the letter thereof is worthless. As a result, if you are to succeed at this second chance at life, hedging the odds in your favor is mandatory. To gain this much-needed advantage, you must understand the four sets of laws. Concerning these laws, you will find present three constant themes: The first is order. Secondly, all laws are easily recognized. Lastly, they are not bound nor restricted by anything. In other words, all four laws are in effect twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Time, place, and circumstance must submit to them; it is not the other way around. The wonderful thing is, these laws exist to serve you, not limit you. Chapter 5 provides the guidelines to help you align your life with Natural, Spiritual and Universal Laws, thus providing the keys that will guarantee you a prosperous and peace filled life.


Chapter 6: Can You Hear Me Now?


Imagine how much further you’d get in life if you could immediately distinguish God’s voice from that of your egotistical self and of others. This is particularly true when it applies to distinguishing instinct and inclination from reason and reaction. Stop! Think for a moment. What if you had availed yourself of this ability earlier in life? All the external influences that until now have tossed you from plinth of triumph to the trench of tragedy could have possibly been avoided. Perfecting the ability to differentiate between God’s voice and that of other voices will end the lack of clarity that’s been the source of every bad decision you’ve ever made. By doing such, the inability to accurately perceive situations, people, and circumstances will be permanently rendered null. Chapter 6 eliminates the middle man and teaches you how to, with clarity, distinguish God’s voice from that of any other.


Chapter 7: Believe It


Success in any area is imminent, as long as you keep your eyes on the prize. But, what happens if you’re wearing jaded lenses? Sooner or later, you won’t know what to believe in. There are several types of belief, as well as many things to believe in. There’s make-believe, religious belief, belief systems —the list goes on and on. The most pivotal of them all, however, is what you believe — what you know — about yourself. By definition, belief is what you know to be true. This leads us to one of the most important questions you will ever answer in your life. What is the truth about you? After all, your perception shapes your reality. Chapter 7 concerns itself with creating a new reality for you. Belief is rooted in perception. If you change your perceptions, you change your reality.


Chapter 8: Don’t be Scared


The most compelling weapon known to man is fear. Though fear is an intangible thing, it is a formidable intimidator. Fear can freeze a man dead in his tracks; fear can make you “poop” your pants. Fear has the power to immobilize us; it can make your heart palpitate. In fact, fear has commonly been known to make people drop dead — it literally can kill you. This intimidator will drive you to betray any and everyone, including yourself. Fear is an inescapable human emotion; but all is not lost. Though you can’t eliminate fear from your life, you can stop being scared, once you understand how fear works.


“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” ~ Dr. Ben Carson. In chapter 8, not only will you discover how to overcome most, if not all of your fears, but you will learn how to make your fears work for you as opposed to against you.


Chapter 9: Come On; Let’s Go!


One of the worst things you can do is rushing yourself. Never is it good to hotfoot it from where you are to where you need to be. Inevitably you’re going to forget something. If your plan is not to go far, it’s not such a big deal. But, when you’re leaving the past and heading toward your future, that’s a very different animal. Anytime your adventure involves ascension, one thing you dare not do is rush things. People who are fortunate enough to get another chance in life have more than likely been given a third, fourth, or even fifth shot at it. I’m willing to bet this isn’t your first or second chance at life either. To that extent, we are going to make sure that you don’t blow this one after the passing of a few days or weeks. The reason you are where you are right now is not due to your good looks, your good luck, or the fact that you deserve it. It’s times like these when you need to remember the things you can’t afford to forget. Chapter 9 prepares you to undertake this journey; the journey called – The Rest of Your Life.


Chapter 10: Nothing is Impossible – Not Far From the Tree


We are the offspring of something much greater than ourselves. And apples don’t fall far from the tree where they originated. I’m saying that to say that if God spoke things into existence, so can you. Because of what you’ve been through, you possess the power to transform so many lives, especially your own. Your presence can change any environment for the better. At issue, is what good is all of that, if you don’t know when or how to use what you’ve got. Knowing what to do, when, and how to do it is not only crucial, it could mean the difference between life and death for someone else. Chapter 10 empowers you to channel the force. It teaches you how to connect with the power of the God in you.


The Audience for Another Chance… Where Would You Be Without One!


The audience for Another Chance includes anyone who is starting over; those who are leaving mental, emotional or physical incarceration; those who are confronting death; those who are feeling hopeless, downtrodden and those who are lost; not to mention who is sick and tired of being sick and tired. It was created for the soul injured by bad choices and yearning to move on. As with most of Dr. D Ivan Young’s works, the major difference between this and other such publications is Another Chance by Dr. D Ivan Young actually works. Life is too short and death is too long to continue settling for less than you deserve from life. This book is a step-by-step guide toward self-actualization and restoration.


Written for the masses, it does NOT matter what your religious beliefs are, what your nationality is, your race or your gender. The Universe doesn’t discriminate. All of us have two things in common – the day were born and the day we will die. Don’t you want to leave here having accomplished what you came to do? Don’t you want what you deserve in life?
