Jeremy Ryan Slate just released his new book: Overcome Extreme Adversity & Create Your Best Life.
If you ask the best in the world the single greatest secret to success, they’ll sit back in their chair and put their feet up on the desk. They’ll take a long thoughtful pause, and with their hands folded behind the crown of their head, they may start to gently chuckle to themselves.
You’re asking the wrong question.
Being extraordinary is not a single element. It cannot be distilled down to one thing. However, we’re told that being a success is a magical thing that happens and a place that we’ll arrive. The hard part is that this long held truth is the biggest lie.
The fact is that the path that so many follow, the one society sells us on, will not lead to the promised land. The truth is, the route we’re all told to take may actually stick us in purgatory, without Dante or Virgil to guide us.
Mark Twain stated: “Most men die at 27, we just bury them at 72.” It’s sad, but if you look at it this way: we’re all born with passion, goals and big dreams but over time, life and a lack of the correct path beats it out of us.
Becoming extraordinary takes time and work, but when you know its tenets is a repeatable and predictable process.
Over the course of the last 5 years, I’ve had conversations with some of the highest performers in the world: Indy 500 winners, NY Times best selling authors, platinum recording artists, billionaires, even the former director of the CIA.
Though their paths and their walks of life are different, they have one thing in common: they are Extraordinary. Upon deeper examination,
each applied the same principles to achieve the greatness of their life and impact. Through their experiences, the book will teach you to:
1. See and use adversity as a tool for growth
2. Not wait to ‘find’ your passion and instead ….
3. Seek the biggest, scariest goals you can imagine
4. Define success on your own terms, not anyone elses
5. Be the one and only to create and tell your own story
6. They were radically responsible for their own success
Are you ready to become Extra Ordinary?
