Review: It's Not Who You Know, It's Who You Are: Life Lessons from Winners by:Williams/Denney
About the Book:
We live in a culture obsessed with celebrity. When we're not trying to make a name for ourselves, we're following the big names on Twitter, liking them on Facebook, and taking selfies with them if we are lucky enough to run into them in real life. We love winners and we want to be winners. But take it from a man who knows more famous people than most of us will ever meet--it's not who you know that's important, it's who you are inside.
With short, story-driven readings, Pat Williams draws from over fifty years of brushing shoulders with the greats, offering readers motivation to do their best, be themselves, and continually strive to be the people God made them to be. He shows that being a "winner" is more about character, attitudes, values, and faith than it is about coming out on top. Stories from legendary sports figures, leaders, and fascinating people from all walks of life help readers develop true character that speaks for itself.
Through hard work and persistence, it is undeniable that eventually we will reach the top. Sometimes it takes the experiences of others to motivate us to get started in an upward direction. In the book, It's Not Who You Know, It's Who You Are: Life Lessons from Winners, Pat Williams lets us in on some very motivated conversations with celebrities that he has had or encountered over the years. Many of which are very positive and life affirming.
It is exciting to read some of these stories, because it gives you a peek into just how "real" these individuals really are. There are over 200 pages filled with short snippets of conversation that will encourage you and inspire you to stay focused on your goal and to keep looking to God for His help and His motivation. Pat Williams is a good encourager and is known across the country. He is a good motivational speaker and encouraging writer!
