In life, you will encounter many obstacles, if you have not already. How you deal with these challenges will define your character. All about a driven heart and pure grit, Takes More Than Heart: Change the Journey’s Challenges into Opportunities is for anyone—from athletes to business people—who has suffered a life-changing event and desires to transform their challenges into opportunities. It instructs how to live your life fully while understanding that events may come at you, but you influence the outcomes through your reactions—as in “fall down seven times, get up eight.” The key themes include: • What's Important Next (W.I.N.). • The Navy SEAL acronym: D.W.I., as in Deal With It. • Take care of the next two hundred feet on the journey to reaching your goal. Part self-help book, part memoir, this book will touch anyone who has experienced a business setback, career/life-changing event, such as an athlete with a season-ending or career-ending injury, and inspire them to recover from their challenging event. This book will inspire readers to sustain their grit and persevere in order to make a difference and lead a purposeful life.
