Sometimes we need a hand to help us get to the gifts locked inside us. Believe to Achieve is that helping hand, daring readers of all ages to reach for their most cherished dream and giving them the tools to get there.
Author Howard “H” White tells us extraordinary people are simply ordinary people on fire with desire—and he knows. As Nike, Inc.’s liaison for athletes such as Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, “H” has had plenty of experience with superstars. But he did not start there. He has known extraordinary people his whole life, from his family and friends to his coaches and teachers. All along the way, Howard has met people who have opened his eyes to his own abilities, and he has spent his life doing the same for others.
Full of behind-the-scenes moments with favorite athletes as well as funny anecdotes, Believe to Achieve is an exuberant collection of wisdom that will help you recognize the potential in yourself and see the path to success. It is a handbook for all people who have a goal they do not know how to reach or who want to help others discover their gifts.
As Howard says, you can never tell what people are capable of just by looking at them—even you.
