I am so incredibly honored to share with you today’s guest, one of my absolute biggest mentors, Lewis Howes. Lewis is a New York Times Bestselling author of the hit book, The School of Greatness. He is a lifestyle entrepreneur, high performance business coach and keynote speaker. A former professional football player and two-sport All-American, he is a current USA Men’s National Handball Team athlete.
Lewis hosts a top Self Help podcast called The School of Greatness, which has received millions of downloads since it launched in 2013. He was recognized by The White House and President Obama as one of the top 100 entrepreneurs in the country under 30. Lewis is a contributing writer for Entrepreneur and Yahoo Health and has been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Men’s Health, The Today Show and other major media outlets.
Following his dreams, Lewis started out as a professional football player. It wasn’t the fame or fortune he was pursuing, but was more to prove to himself that anything is possible.
“Like anything else, it took time and energy, mistakes and growth, to get there”
Due to a sports injury, Lewis was no longer able to play out his dream, but he knew he wasn’t finished… there was something else he was called to do.
Self teaching himself the world of online marketing, Lewis tapped into all sorts of online space looking to build an income, all from his sister’s couch. Attending workshops and doing his own online research, he was determined to not only learn, but to be knowledgable enough to teach others about it as well.
“I didn’t know I was a teacher, but it was nice to know I could help people get results.”
He shows us that taking action is key. You can listen to any podcast or pick up any book, but nothing will show its true face value until you are brave enough to take action!
“I looked at my life like a sport, I love coaching.”
If you want anything in life, you must put yourself out there. Listen in to understand the process and hear the tips on how to take action towards your dreams, straight from Lewis himself.
“Everything you’re afraid of, that’s what you need to lean into even more.”
