How would it feel to be choosing greatness in all areas of your life?
Answering that question is what Lewis Howes has dedicated his livelihood to. Lewis has always been a big dreamer. From childhood, he wanted to be a professional athlete and an Olympian. But all that changed in 2007 when he was injured while playing professional football. That’s when Lewis switched gears and developed an obsession for learning about business, marketing, and adding value to influential people (even before he had value to give).
“Greatness is discovering and making the most of the gifts and talents that you’re born with to follow your dreams and live them.”
Since then, it’s been a incredible journey for Lewis – going from sleeping on his sisters couch to using webinars to build a multi-million dollar online media company.
Through hustle, passion, focus and constant vision, Lewis now speaks all over the world, has a #1 rated podcast and is the author of a brand new book called ‘The School of Greatness.’ Lewis is a powerful example of what it means to commit to a vision and pursue it with 100% purpose.
This episode will inspire you to dream bigger and choose greatness in your life and business. And in an unexpected turn of events, Lewis challenges me to step up my own game and expand what’s really possible in my business.
