America's football icon turned Christian advocate Tim Tebow will be your guide to how to handle success and disappointment in life with his second book publication "Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life's Storms," available in October this year.

His return to the limelight, not in the football field but as an advocate of Christianity, was greeted with enthusiasm by his fans and Christian bookworms who love to read his personal accounts about faith and perseverance. His memoir "Through My Eyes" was best-seller in 2011

A former Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Florida, Tebow, 28, has at least managed to stay successful off the field after his NFL career ended. Since 2012 he has not been able to play, and his most recent chance with a team ended when Philadelphia Eagles cut him from the roster last September.

With his personal experience, he is certainly candid about dreams not going as planned. Aside from the Heisman Trophy, he led the Gators to national championships. He briefly saw success when he was drafted by the Denver Broncos to much fanfare in 2010, leading his team to the playoffs in 2011.

Unfortunately, he was later deemed surplus to requirement after Denver signed Peyton Manning and struggled to find a starting spot during stints with the Jets, the Patriots, and the Eagles.

Tebow's pre-game prayer poses made him known beyond NFL, and sparked public thoughts about his strong faith to God.- he would kneel and bowed his head as if in prayer, arm resting on the one bent knee.

Tebow was also awarded the stamp to "Tebowing" after winning a legal battle with two fans who wanted to trademark the name.
