Choice Point

Break the Cycle of Self-Sabotage, Accelerate Your Growth, and Realize Your True Potential

Ryan was living out his childhood dream as a college football coach. Everything seemed perfect on the outside, and he and his wife had recently been blessed with two children. But under the surface his secret, lifelong battle with depression and anxiety was intensifying. Something had to change, and he made the hardest choice of his life: He left his beloved and successful career in order to fight for his own life and save his marriage and family. Setting out on an intense journey of self-realization, Ryan ultimately found peace and a greater sense of purpose than he ever knew possible.

Former national champion collegiate football coach, Unbeatable Mind Coach, Kokoro Yoga Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Breath Coach, meditation teacher and Q Effect Facilitator, Ryan Sawyer shares his inspiring story and teaches you in a straightforward, practical way as only a coach can. You will learn the eight key principles of transformation and get step by step directions for the most impactful practices you can use to transform your own life.


In each moment we have a choice: continue to let our past dictate our future, or choose to write a new story that serves our greatest good.

Couldn't put the book down.

Inspiring story with the tools provide to change your life.

From the minute I picked up the book I read it almost straight thru. Ryan's personal story draws you in and keeps you engaged, while the step by step transformation process is easy to follow and apply. I found the personal side of Ryan's life from coaching to marriage to the darkness that once was part of his life interesting and inspiring. Then he backs it up with the tools and resources to start your own journey towards overcoming issues and problems. Whether you are needing a complete overall of your life and just some tuning up, this is a great book.

Raw, Honest, Inspiring

Sawyer exposes his soul in this raw and honest account of his battles with depression and resulting marital issues and his path back to health. The book is part memoire, part roadmap for anyone looking for a spiritual path out of the suffering of life. He is so authentic that it is easy for the reader to connect with him and to trust his advice. The result is a wonderful read that inspires the reader to grow and to go deeper in his or her own journey. There is plenty in here for the seasoned spiritual warrior; for someone taking their first steps, it may be life changing.
