When a career-ending football injury left Lewis Howes out of work and sleeping on his sister's couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He began reaching out to people whom he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches' tips to his life off the field. He did more than bounce back: He built a multi-million-dollar online business, and he is now an in-demand business coach, podcast and webinar host, and speaker.
In The School of Greatness, Howes shares the tips and habits he gathered in interviewing "the greats" on his wildly popular podcast of the same name-the same tips that helped pull him out of depression. The lessons and practical exercises in this book prove that anyone is capable of achieving greatness. Howes argues that the masters of greatness are successful not because they have managed to avoid or neutralize a traumatic life experience, but because they applied specific habits and tools to overcome adversity in their lives.
Each chapter focuses on a lesson that Howes learned while working tirelessly to build a better life. Within that narrative, he weaves in stories from the outstanding people he's met in his journey to greatness, then offers easy-to-follow guidelines for pursuing and attaining these building blocks to greatness.
