I picked this book up after sharing some wisdom from Jerry Rice in our Note on Chasing Excellence. —> “Today I will do what others won’t so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.”
I always knew Jerry had an extraordinary work ethic and I thought it would be fun to hear about his journey in his own words. And, here we are. :)
For those who may not know, Jerry is the greatest NFL wide receiver of all time. You might also know him from his Dancing with the Stars awesomeness.
And, perhaps most importantly, he seems like a really good guy—committed to being a role model and expressing the best version of himself in everything he does.
This is a fun, behind-the-scenes look at what makes him tick—starting with his upbringing in a tiny Mississippi town all the way through, as per the sub-title, “Beyond the Game and the Fame.”
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
