Whether I'm speaking to a large group, in a boardroom, or simply one to one, my goal is to help my audience find the champion within. Just as people in my past inspired me to reach beyond the ordinary, I strive to inspire those I work with and speak to.
The football players on the field all had the same thought: "Who's the 'grandpa' putting on pads and a helmet?" That man was Don R. Varney, a San Antonio-based professional speaker and life principles coach who was about to accomplish his lifelong dream of playing professional football-at age fifty-two!
Don's story is like so many others: He once had big dreams, but he thought he'd lost his will to achieve them. He rediscovered his passion, and there he was on that field.
In this guidebook to achieving goals, he explains how he made it happen. He focuses on seven critical areas: attitude, confidence, training, integrity, objectives and objections, negatives, and, of course, the solution.
We all have a burning desire to win, but most of us rationalize defeat before we even begin competing. When we believe we can't win, we're exactly right. But when we have faith in our abilities and make preparations to succeed, we can accomplish tremendous things.
Today, Don is setting new goals and continues to run for the gold. In The ACTION-Driven Life, he shares a proven formula that can help make you a champion.

This book is well worth jumping to the top of your stack of books. It comes in at a slimmed down 81 pages which allows Don’s enthusiasm for the subject matter to come bounding off of every page. He doesn't mince words, but rather drives home an “Action Solution” that had an immediate impact on this reader. What I really enjoyed about the book was the fact that after each chapter there were questions for reflection which allowed you time to stop and process the material from the chapter. In such a quick read, it would be easy to just skim from chapter to chapter and not really retain anything. However, Don gives the reader some “Food for Thought,” then an action plan, followed by the reflection questions. This was a great idea and helped drive the point’s home for me. I would absolutely recommend this book for anyone, but it really seems targeted at young people who are just beginning their journey through life, or business professionals who need a quick recharge to get them through a slump. The advice and tips contained in this book could really help a person in their personal and professional life.
