Good Read4 star

This was a good read. I learned a lot about what it takes to put a championship team together.45


Great book that reiterates champion-oriented decisions in all avenues of life4 star

Just as my title depicts, Coach Meyers reflects on what type of an attitude it takes to become and remain a champion, not just in football/sports, but in careers, family life, spiritual growth, etc.... He admits his faults, why they were faults, how he fixed them, and as a young 20s man, who has played football at a D1 collegiate level, it's a great book that epitomizes that being a champion applies to more than sports, but that the ultimate champion is one who relentlessly works to become better in ALL facets of life. Outstanding book for high school, collegiate athletes, business owners, and everyone else who wants to be a leader my example, not by the virtue of talk, because after all, talk is cheap' talk is very cheap. Would recommend to literally ANYONE WHO STRIVES TO BECOME NOT ONLY A BETTER PERSON, OVERALL, BUT WHO IS/WANTS TO BE A BETTER VISIONARY EXAMPLE, DIRECTING THE YOUTH TO BELIEVE AND SETTING THEM UP FOR SUCCESSFUL FUTURES IN ALL ENDEAVORS!45
