Be Great ~ The Five Foundations of an Extraordinary Life
Computers and toasters come with operating manuals. Human beings do not. Without an operating manual to guide us, it is not surprising that so many can feel off-balance, unfulfilled or just plain lost.
In Be Great ~ The Five Foundations of an Extraordinary Life, serial entrepreneur turned social entrepreneur, Peter H. Thomas, shares his business experiences to show readers what it means to be successful in business and in life. He shares his five foundations by storytelling, giving examples of his and other people’s challenges and resulting successes –by following their core values that helped unlock their greatest potential.
Centuries ago, Benjamin Franklin shared a similar theory with 13 virtues. Today, Peter Thomas proves that Franklin’s theory is not only possible, but more probable than ever– even in a society that teaches “whatever it takes to succeed.” Thomas shows us that, “Yes we can succeed” without compromising for what we stand.
The basis for what became Be Greatwas Peter’s own “operator’s manual” to keep his life on track; and it remains an integral part of every decision, choice or possible opportunity he encounters. He describes his AMC — attitude, motivation and commitment. His shares his own experience with FUD– fear, uncertainty and doubt and tells how he got King Arthur’s disease and shows the consequences. He addresses overcoming a personal tragedy and his own financial ruin going from millions to nothing and what it took to once again live an extraordinary life according to his values.
Be Great will encourage and inspire readers to do what is right by first learning and then knowing what is best and what works for you. After that, success and personal fulfillment is only how big you can dream!
