When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister's couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches' advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host.
In the New York Times best seller The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing "the greats" on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives.
A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness "professors" and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.

Greatness is within you Lewis

Never, never underestimate the power of your dreams and the influence of your spirit in others. Forward is forward. Grateful to have you around in my journey - Val Vilchez
MAKE THIS YOUR HABIT!
I start my mornings while prepping for my day with Lewis, 5 AM everyday. As an executive at a large company I am constantly striving for ways to improve myself so I can support my family and my co workers. I used to bounce around from podcast to podcast in search of inspiration, I landed on the school of greatness 4 months ago and haven’t deviated since. Even if you’ve heard some of the featured guests before on other podcasts you’ll notice quickly that Lewis has a knack for subtly drawing out organic inspiration. Well done Lewis, I’m enjoying this journey of greatness!
So grateful for your podcast!
I’m only two podcast in and it’s safe to say, the path you’re on to help find others peoples greatness is very exhilarating! My good friend told me about your podcast because he felt I could learn from you being that I’m on my quest to be motivational speaker. The first podcast I listened to was the February 4th podcast with Daymond John. All I can say is wow! He opened my eyes to a lot of things I wasn’t doing in life and he made me comfortable with talking about my insecurities after feeling like it was wrong to have jay being that I’m a man. I just finished the Nina Debrov podcast now and all I can say is, WOW! I appreciate you greatly. I’ll be sure to
