Description

Winning the NBA Championship in 2008.
Losing in the NBA Finals
in 2010. Though they were completely
different endings, emotionally, both
were amazing learning opportunities that
author, Kevin Eastman, experienced as a
member of the Boston Celtics coaching
staff. These events, and many others from
Kevin’s forty-plus years in the game, have
motivated him to write Why the Best Are
the Best.
Kevin will take you behind the
scenes and share an up-close look at
how and why the best are the way they
are. Why the Best Are the Best examines
strategies to help you overcome mistakes
and failures, as well as ways to turn them
into your own personal success plan.
More importantly, this book will help
you see that these same mindsets, habits,
and strategies are not just for elite athletes
or the otherwise famous. We can all insert
them into our lives and careers to help us
become our best.
The best are the best, in part, because
of the words they choose to live by. The
best individuals and teams define their
words, respect the power of those words,
and use those words as a foundation for
all they do. This book provides the 25
Power Words that will help you learn
from the best to create a framework and
mindset to become your best.
