How do you measure greatness? Whereas “excellence” is about becoming the best you can be at one particular thing, greatness moves you past routine success and onto a new plateau where your achievements are more meaningful and satisfying. It is a deliberate act of finding the best in yourself and making choices from a different mindset. It’s a way of seeing a special kind of "more" in your life. And while achieving greatness inevitably leads to profit and phenomenal success in business, it's also—surprise!—a profoundly satisfying way to live. This revelatory book contains a powerful step-by-step process showing you how to: develop a clear idea of who you are and what you want • cultivate a positive new orientation from which better choices can be made • generate action in yourself and create unusual impact on others • overcome information overload • create a built-in mechanism to generate this sort of greatness consistently Filled with inspiring examples from sports and business, this book points the way to a life lived more deeply and filled with joy, passion, success, excitement, and peace.
