“Confidence is essential to success, happiness and peace of mind. If we don’t believe we can accomplish something, we won’t. If we don’t feel good about ourselves, we won’t be happy. If we don’t believe in ourselves, we’ll never be at peace with who we are and what we’re capable of.
Yet, sometimes, it seems like right when we most need a boost of self-confidence, it is nowhere to be found.
We’ve all been there. Those times when it feels like life is working against us. When we have a losing season, we face a financial or health crisis, we lose a job, or we just seem to be encountering one big problem after another.
It’s during those tough times when we often lose our self-confidence, which only makes matters worse. We start doubting ourselves questioning whether we will get back on our feet, wondering how we will ever turn things around.
This book will show you how to build and maintain confidence no matter what is going on around you—in good times and in bad.
No matter how dire the situation, every turnaround starts with renewed self-confidence. It is the catalyst for getting back up, conquering your problems, and feeling good about yourself again.”
~ Darrin Donnelly from The Turnaround
This is the sixth and (currently!) final book in Darrin Donnelly’s Sports for the Soul series.
We started with Think Like a Warrior, then we featured Old School Grit, Relentless Optimism, Victory Favors the Fearless, and Life to the Fullest.
As we discussed in each of those Notes, I’m a big Darrin Donnelly fan. His books are quick reading, incredibly inspiring fables that are packed (!) with wisdom.
Think Like a Warrior features a struggling college football coach who magically meets five legendary coaches who each give him ONE powerful idea. Old School Grit features an NCAA basketball coach at the end of his career writing letters to his grandchildren on how to live a great life. Relentless Optimism features a minor league baseball player who meets a brilliant manager who helps him break through to fulfill his dreams. Victory Favors the Fearless features a boxer who goes from down and out to heavyweight champion after he meets the perfect mentor who teaches him how to conquer the seven fears that hold us back. Life to the Fullest features a high school coach who questions the decisions he made in life and gets wisdom from his dad on the power of following your heart and trusting your unique path.
This book features a fourth-string quarterback on the worst college football team in the conference whose life changes the day he meets his new head coach who turns the program around by helping him and his teammates forge unstoppable confidence.
It’s awesome. Get a copy here. And, as you’d expect, it’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
