Description

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.

Best book on how to champion yourself

I absolutely love this book. I know many athlete stories and this is the best mix of storytelling with generous sharing and interpretation of his own experiences of both success and failure.

It encourages us to commit to what we want and then "put big boy pants on" as he says. Or "get off the bench!" He prefers the word "commitment" to "hard work" which I think sums up his attitude in life quite well and explains his sustainability in sports.

But each chapter really has an excellent point such as the benefits of a competitive environment - even when you are losing.

I go back and listen to it often. Can totally recommend it whether your are into sports or not. Besides he is super likeable. A true champion.

Loved it!

So much truth and wisdom here, sprinkled with humor and a good dose of faith from my fave skater ever.

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. "

This is going to be a favorite

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

I want to do that again with this book!

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

I Made an Oops

I love Scott Hamilton as a whole person. He is so kind, has an amazing testimony and story of his life, is a good father and husband, and of course I re-watch his skating on YouTube and loved him when I was a child too. I always loved his announcing and critique of skaters.

To get to this book, I suppose I expected this to be more autobiographical than it was! It was more about how to be a winner and to even try when you aren't really good at something, just to have some fun out of it. He talks a few times about his faith, so if that will bother you, this may not be for you, as he does use scriptures as well to back up why he has his faith.

It was good! Now go and win!
