Publisher's Summary

Go for the win! Achieve excellence and be better than you've ever been!

In his years as a professional ice-skater, Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton learned to embrace the mind-set of working hard to "beat" the competition. But it seems competition has gotten a bad rap these days. We've bought in to the belief that it is unfair to participants to rank performance. Yet competition is in fact a good thing because it's about working toward excellence.

Finish First is a wake-up call for business leaders, entrepreneurs, spouses, parents, and even students to stop settling for mediocre and begin to revitalize their intrinsic will to achieve excellence and go for the win. Most of us feel we were made for something more, but we're often afraid to allow ourselves to be competitive because we think our finishing first might somehow rob others of their chance to shine. This book encourages the hidden potential, the champion within all of us, to come out - which eventually brings our families, our marriages, our careers, our businesses, and the world around us the greatest possible good.

Surprised i loved this

'Winning' has often felt like an arrogant goal to me. No More. Many great items here but it all started with ( i paraphrase ) "The best place to help others is from the front. "

the last book that hit me like a freight train, the Magnolia Story, I ordered 11 copies and have them to everyone.

I want to do that again with this book!

I listened to it in one sweep.. maybe back to back today.

"Must-be-heard!"

A "must-be-heard" witness to living a valuable life. Something shifted in me, and I am on the way to share it with my kids.

Thought provoking, inspiring, and easy to read/listen to.

Well worth the read/listen. Reminded me to keep checking my focus and drive. This book is a gem. Well written and articulated. I felt the passion for excellence and I know I can choose to finish first too. It’s up to me.
