This is the fourth book in Darrin Donnelly’s brilliant Sports for the Soul series.
We’ve covered the first three fables so far: , and Relentless Optimism. I read all six books in the series in less than a week. We’ll cover the next two next.
As I said in the prior Notes, I’m a HUGE fan of these books.
Darrin has a gift for telling a GREAT, inspiring sports story while delivering some super-practical, scientifically-grounded wisdom in the process. If you’re into sports and self-development as much as I am, I think you’ll love these books.
And, as I mentioned more than once, I think these books are also the perfect way to introduce this wisdom to our kids and/or spouses/family members/colleagues who may be into sports but not *that* into self-development.
Each of the books in the series features a Hero meeting a Guide. This book features a boxer who’s doubting his decision to try to become a professional fighter.
What’s he need to do if he wants a shot at the heavyweight championship?
He needs to conquer his fear. More specifically, he needs to conquer the SEVEN fears that are holding him (and all of us!) back from actualizing our potential.
As you’d expect, the book is packed with Big Ideas on how to do exactly that. Let’s jump in and explore some of my favorite Ideas we can apply to our lives TODAY.
