If there is anyone one it the world that knows what it takes to be a champion, Bruce Jenner does. His spectacular victory in the decathlon earned him a gold medal, a new world record and the hearts of America. Jenner offers his legendary formula that he developed and lived by to anyone who seeks to harness their maximum potential and to become a champion.
Growing up, Bruce Jenner suffered from dyslexia. Although, Jenner had an unquenchable thirst to be a champion. In order to become the legend he is today, he had to overcome great hardships of self-doubt, fear, insecurity and anger that always was holding him back. It was Jenner's sheer determination that allowed him to fulfill his full potential and become a champion. Not only in sports, but also on the business side of life. Jenner spent his life developing these championship principles. Along the way, Bruce dared to dream. He knew he had to identify his goals and develop his mind, body and spirit and make them unbreakable. He had to learn to accept setback and defeat, while never looking back.
In Finding the Champion Within, Jenner provides the tools for success, which can be used by anyone and everyone. Using the ten events of the decathlon as a metaphor, Jenner provides a captivating and unusual way to present his motivational material. He has delivered many motivational speeches across the country which has made him a highly desired corporate speaker. Jenner teaches the fundamentals that enable you to take control of your life and realize your dreams.
After winning gold in the 1976 Olympics, Jenner rode the wave of Olympic fame. He worked as a sports broadcaster, public speaker and he also did commercial endorsements. Soon after, he started to spiral downward into gloom and depression. But, using the same methods of rising to Olympic height, he turned his life around and began to rise to the top and reach heights of personal success he had never had before. Jenner provides many life experiences that allows for personal motivation and encouragement to others to find their life's mission.
There are many messages and themes located within this book. Unfortunately, there are so many quotes that Jenner's voice often gets lost. He also leaves out so much information about himself that it's a surprise when, late in the book, he mentions that he has been married and divorced twice and has four children. Behind the quotes, lie very good messages on how to fulfill every ounce of potential one may possess. The author's resort to third-person dialog about himself makes this a hard read. Overall, Finding the Champion Within is very motivational book that makes you feel like anything can be accomplished. This book is a 10 out of 10 and anyone wanting to take control of their life should read this.
