Back in 2009, I met someone who would go on to impact the lives of millions of people in an incredibly positive and fascinating way.
His name is Lewis Howes.
You may have heard about Lewis. He was a professional football player and two-sport All-American athlete. He’s helped build schools for children in Guatemala, Laos, and Ghana. Since 2013, he’s hosted The School of Greatness podcast (which has received millions of downloads). He regularly appears on Entrepreneur.com and Yahoo.com as a contributing writer, and has been recognized by the White House for his own greatness in the field of entrepreneurship.
Lewis' shares what he learned about greatness in his book, The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper, and Leaving a Legacy.
If you’ve ever dared to dream of what your “perfect life” would look like, then you need to check this guy out.
He leverages his Power and Prestige Advantages (Lewis is The Maestro) to inspire monumental goals in his listeners. He plays big, and encourages you to play big, too.
Is there only one kind of greatness?
In my interview with Lewis (below), we discuss the intersection of greatness and fascination. Most importantly, we discover that there are different kinds of greatness.
YOUR greatness may not be about "ambitious excellence." Instead, it may be about nurturing relationships with others. Or it could mean providing precise execution in situations where the details matter most.
YOUR greatness is the distinct value you add to every situation.
It is shaped by your Advantages, and it is what makes you truly fascinating.
When I asked Lewis about his new book, he told me that he wrote it "to inspire possibilities in the minds of millions of people around the world."
I can’t wait to share this inspiration with you, so that you can find your own personal style of greatness and share it with the world.
