Read an Excerpt

From the foreword by Coach John WoodenIn his book, Beyond Success: The 15 Secrets to Effective Leadership and Life Brian Biro has captured the essence of my Pyramid of Success and the secrets behind each block as it ascends to the apex. He then goes even further, creating a new game plan for lasting leadership and personal fulfillment. It is my feeling that real success is not the accumulation of material possessions or the attainment of a position of power or prestige. Rather, it is the peace of mind that is attained only by making the effort to do the best you are capable of doing at any task in which you are engaged. When you embrace this fundamental idea-that your success is determined not by what others think but rather by what you know in your own heart-you have the opportunity to make each day your masterpiece. This is the central message of Beyond Success: The 15 Secrets to Effective Leadership and Life. Brian Biro brings this message to life in a way that is both compelling and spiritually uplifting. —Reprinted from Beyond Success: The 15 Secrets to Effective Leadership and Life by Brian Biro by permission of Perigee Books, a member of Penguin Putnam Inc.
