About The Book

In The Gravity of Up, Brent Yates helps others reject the negative mind-sets that are holding them down to live healthy, happy lives.

Your life is designed to be the ultimate adventure. What holds you back from realizing that potential right now? What is pushing you down instead of pulling you up?

Moving up might feel like something too daunting to achieve, but the good news is that up is a direction not a destination. Today is the day you begin moving forward as author Brent Yates shows you how to unshackle and propel yourself into a more abundant life.

From the outside, Brent Yates had it all—money, success, a beautiful wife and family—but inside, he was dying. One by one, everything that he valued was taken from him until he was suicidal and crippled with a mysterious malady that no doctor could identify. Instead of giving up, he decided to pinpoint what wasn’t working in his life and embark on a quest to discover happiness. By implementing a holistic approach, Brent found the three pillars of a healthy life to be rooted in the spiritual, mental, and physical.

You might be battling with some of the same issues that Brent had—depression, loneliness, and feeling life was without purpose—or maybe you simply feel stuck right now. The Gravity of Up is a blueprint to lose the old, negative thoughts and embrace a new world-altering mindset. Now, happy and healthy, Brent is living proof that the formula works and is eager to help you move up!

About The Author

Brent Yates is a serial entrepreneur with over thirty years of experience and success as a business owner, philanthropist, and investor. A leader in the natural gas industry and Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year nominee, he is now a coveted speaker. Despite having money and prestige, his life journey was neither smooth nor straightforward. In 2007, he was incapacitated by a mysterious illness, a crumbling marriage, shattered familial relationships, and suicidal thoughts. At his lowest point, God put people, organizations, and resources into his life that came around him and lifted him up from his knees.

This pivotal moment made Brent the man he is today.

He set out on a decades long pilgrimage to repair his body, mind, and faith. The more love, compassion, and gratefulness he practiced in his day-to-day life, the more abundant his life became. He is inspired to share his success and learned process with others that are searching for a more balanced and fruitful existence. Brent is involved in many non-profits and founder of Restore Usa charity that supports local and global individuals in need with finances and logistics and without the red tape of most organizations.

In 2020, Brent felt God was motivating him through a recurring dream about scaling a seemingly endless mountain. After finally reaching the summit, he clearly heard the words: “Now, what are you going to do?” Accepting the challenge, he penned The Gravity of Up, where he chronicles his arduous passage from brokenness to holistic health. His autobiographical book is a resource for not only business-minded leaders, but anyone looking to overcome their past for a more plentiful future.
