In a world that thrives on competition and individual achievement, we are measuring and pursuing potential all wrong. By pursuing success in isolation - pushing others away as we push ourselves too hard - we are not just limiting our potential, we are becoming more stressed and disconnected than ever. In his highly anticipated follow-up to The Happiness Advantage, Achor reveals a better approach. Drawing on his work in 50 countries, he shows that success and happiness are not competitive sports.

absolutely loved this book, I have listened to it three times already just because I cannot get enough of it!. John has an amazing way to tell personal stories, stories from very successful places like Harvard and all of the different companies he's worked for, and all of his advice is highly data-driven which is something that I really appreciate. Definitely worth the listen! Highly recommend

  • The Mask of Masculinity

Lewis Howes grew up as an athlete. He was a two-sport All-American and went on to play football professionally. Howes then transferred his competitive nature from sports to business, building his podcast, The School of Greatness, into a global phenomenon. But his whole identity was built on misguided beliefs about what "masculinity" was: dangerous, false ideas learned from teammates and coaches in locker rooms and stereotypes in the media. Like so many men, Howes grew up to be angry, frustrated, and always chasing something that was never enough.

This was a fantastic read, really impressed with this one. A definite must read!

Lewis has really strong narration throughout.

The actionable tips at the end of each chapter are really powerful.

The book itself is broken down into a framework that is very smooth and seamless. Each mask is talked about individually and Lewis backs up everyone with credible research, personal stories, people from the podcast, and how these exist throughout Society.

I'm not going to lie, I wasn't the biggest fan of the School of Greatness book. But this one is in a whole other level.

  • Sleep Smarter

  • 21 Essential Strategies to Sleep Your Way to a Better Body, Better Health, and Bigger Success

When it comes to health, there is one criminally overlooked element: sleep. Good sleep helps you shed fat for good, stave off disease, stay productive, and improve virtually every function of your mind and body. That's what Shawn Stevenson learned when a degenerative bone disease crushed his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Like many of us, he gave up on his health and his body...until he decided there must be a better way.

Most people are stuck. Every day we seem to just go through the motions, following our usual routine without ever stopping and thinking why we do what we do, or what we'd rather be doing instead. But sometimes, we have that one day - that perfect day - where everything just clicks. We feel great. We are unstoppable. And at the end of it, we think, "Why can't every day be like this?"
