In ‘God Gives You the Lesson When YOU Are Ready!’ you will discover the timeless lessons of success in a way that will make you reflect on all the people who had come into your life and taught you things when you needed that lesson. Dave realised it started with his mother, but needed a mentor who could bring out the essence of the lesson so that he could use not only to impact what he was trying to accomplish, but more importantly, impact and add value to others.

True servant leadership. And on January 15, 2009, the test of all these things he had learned coalesced to not only help himself and others survive a plane crash, but not let the lessons of a lifetime die with him.

“My mentor, John Rohn, got me to realize that the secret of life was to work harder on myself that my job or anything else, because then I’d have something to give people. Having a mentor is essential, as is getting the right one; they will inspire you to achieve more than you ever believed you could. Dave Sanderson found a mentor that helped him excel, and I was honored to help him take those lessons he a learned and teach him distinctions that he used to become a true servant leader.”

‘Moments Matter’ details Dave Sanderson’s close encounter with death and how one defining moment can create a lifetime of purpose. This book was published on the 7-year anniversary of the Miracle on the Hudson, when a bird strike hit US Airways Flight 1549, and there was no choice for the crew but to ditch and land the plane into the Hudson River.

Dave was the last passenger off the flight that fateful day. He took personal responsibity, risking his own life in frigid water, to help other passengers off the plane safely. Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission; to encourage others to do the right thing.

“Brace for impact.” Three simple words that proclaimed to all 150 passengers on board US Airways Flight 1549 on that cold, crisp New York afternoon of January 15, 2009, that their plane was about to go down in the icy Hudson River. Three simple words that churned up their fear that the next two minutes would be their final moments on earth and spurred their most heartfelt, spontaneous prayers. We all know about the stunning tale of survival against all odds that followed.

But there is a different, more meaningful, and more timely story that has yet to be fully told. What happened to these passengers when they went home to their families, their homes, their jobs, and everything else familiar but somehow not the same? What has been the real impact, not of a disastrous crash but of a gift of a ‘new’ life? What can any of us learn from the honest and open sharing of ordinary people who came back from the brink of death?

Brace for Impact answers these questions and more by taking you inside the hearts, minds, and souls of twenty-five passengers and first responders and what life is like after near death.
