Today’s MCM hosts the popular podcast ‘School of Greatness’, is a former professional American footballer, Author and Overcomer of odds.. I present to you Mr Lewis Howe.
Though many will hear ‘football player’ and falsely assume that there can’t be much depth, Howe breaks the stereotype, having built great character and determination though possessing a learning disability which left him feeling isolated and insecure throughout his adolescence.
Howes stance on life is authentically admirable, he states “I’m a firm believer that living in a beautiful state, the journey you experience, and the lives you impact is more important than what you do or what you have accumulated”. This is the will of a winner, when the why becomes greater than self. I urge you all to adapt this stance, enjoy the journey see the beauty in the graft and take pride in your craft; your attitude along the journey could inspire someone’s beginning .. you don’t know who’s watching. The goal is to do more than survive , the goal is to really live.
Howe had no experience and at one point found himself sleeping on his sisters couch, yet he was not deterred from his impacting people’s lives for the better and running a seven figure business. No one promised it will be easy but if you’re making monumental moves and walking towards your purpose you’ll find that you complain less because you’re grateful to if found your passion and purpose.
Here are 3 top quotes/mantras of Lewis Howes to encourage you to graduate & continue learning from Mr School Of Greatness himself:
GRATITUDE : “I’m blessed for the adversity I’ve faced. It makes me appreciate my life now and have compassion for others who suffer in a much bigger way”
YOU DECIDE : Whether you say you can’t or say you can you are correct! “Always remember you were born for a reason, a purpose and something bigger than yourself. But YOU have to activate this calling; no one is going to turn it on for you! It’s Your Responsibility to build yourself into the person who can live a great life. No one is going to give you the power to develop your mental strength, emotional intelligence and physical health to have the life you want. That’s between you and you”!
AUTHENTICALLY YOU : “Your dreams matter because YOU Matter! Never forget that, but you must learn the wisdom, skills and tools to write your own story”. You do not have to be a product of your environment, you can be the rose that blossoms amongst adversity; if you find a way to Grow Daily.
Please do let us know what lessons life has taught you, and how you’ll encourage others to elevate and achieve also.
Until next time be good to yourselves, kind to others and above all GROW DAILY.
