In 2010, local inspirational author, Floyd Miley was at a crossroads in his life. He was a few months away from receiving his Master’s degree when he lost his management position. As the recession tightened its grip on the nation’s economy, he found himself unemployed, broke and on the verge of being homeless. Haunted by past failures, disappointments and abandoned dreams, this became the darkest moments in his life. When he stumbled across the poem, A Dream Deferred, he became inspired to pursue his dreams of being an author and motivational speaker. With his renewed passion, Floyd leaned on the winning principles he learned playing football for the University of Tennessee Volunteers.
The book's principles were based on Tennessee’s coaching legend General Robert Neyland's Game Maxims which have been the foundation to the program's success since the 1930s. The seven principles are compelling, proven, and designed to live a meaningful, balanced, prosperous, and joyous life. With insight and humor, Floyd promises to empower, encourage, and inspire readers to discover and operate their lives according to their purpose and destiny. This is a must read for anyone who finds themselves at a crossroads, trying to renew their passion, or focus on achieving greatness.
