Review: Beyond Chamionships:A Playbook for Winning at Life by:Dru Joyce
About the Book:
As the coach of one of high school basketball s greatest programs, Coach Dru Joyce has been mentor and motivator to some of the nation s best young players, including basketball legend LeBron James. Despite having virtually no experience in the sport, in less than ten years Dru went from a no-name fan to one of the highest profile basketball coaches in the country.
With insight and grit earned from his years on and off the court, Coach Dru shares for the first time the secrets to his teams success and his own coaching achievements. Far more than a sports book, Beyond Championships is a blueprint for anyone looking to make better choices, reach their full potential, and become winners in all areas of life.
As Dru outlines the nine principles that he promotes to his players and tries to live in his own life as well, you'll discover that the solid foundation on which he built so many successful basketball programs can be applied to almost any situation. As you assess your chosen path in life and look for ways to embark on a more inspiring and rewarding journey, Coach Dru offers an accessible and relatable roadmap for personal evolution."
Life can seem like a contact sport at times, but to view it completely as one, in my opinion can be a mistake. There is much more to life then just relational types things, it definitely goes beyond that and is way more serious and a lot more focus driven. But after reading Beyond Championships, the author tries to get his readers to take on the task at "doing" life better to the next level.
Sharing the secrets to his success over the years, he hopes to instill in us a sense of belonging and a sense of inspiration never before seen. If you want to learn how to make better choices in life, this book is worth the read. Dru relies heavily on the fact that good, reliable, sound mentorship can be beneficial or maybe even the best idea for a young person. With sound mentorship a young person can reach higher than ever imagined.
Taken from Coach Dru's hard life, and lessons as well as other experiences, he provides a good basis for simply being better at life.
