The DV Weekend Pickup #39

First, I want to apologize for leaving you high and dry all week!  I was slightly out of sync but I own it, no excuses, ha!  Below is the book I read while traveling last weekend...

The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes

What I like best:  Lewis is a great example for anyone and everyone who is aspiring to be more, to be great.  Lewis speaks to an audience of over 1 million people EVERY week with one of the top podcasts in the country of the same title, The School of Greatness.  He interviews TOP performers from many different walks of life - star athletes, successful entrepreneurs, top selling authors - the list is long, impressive, and insightful.  The book features those podcast lessons through his 8 greatness principles...

  1. Clarify your vision
  2. Embrace adversity
  3. Cultivate a champions mindset
  4. Commit to the hustle
  5. Master your health
  6. Practice positive habits
  7. Realize you need a team
  8. Live a life of service

As Lewis says, "We only have one rule. You can't stop. You can go as slow as you need to go, but you cannot stop. You can never drop out."  The book highlights stories from olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson, the Braun brothers (Scooter - the music management mogul and Adam - the founder of amazing non profit Pencils of Promise), and the downright amazing double amputee Kyle Maynard.  If you're in need of a pick me up then this is the book for you - very positive and easy to read.  Grab it and let me know what you think!

Best Quote:  "Greatness is the result of visionaries who persevere, focus, believe, and prepare.  It is a habit, not a birthright."

Crush the day!
