“Wisdom for Winners contains a unique combination of guidance for the career professional and the entrepreneur combined with spiritual wisdom that prompts self-reflection.”
“You have chosen where you are today, but you will choose today where you will be tomorrow.”
For more than a decade, Jim Stovall’s Winner’s Wisdom syndicated columns have been read and studied by highly successful people around the globe. Now that same wit, wisdom, and millionaire experience is available in this book.
Jim Stovall has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter and the president of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network. He is the author of the bestselling book, The Ultimate Gift, which is now a major motion picture starring James Garner and Abigail Breslin.
Stovall is blind and is an advocate on behalf of people with blindness. He worked to make television and movies accessible to the blind through his role as president of the Narrative Television Network, an organization that has received various award recognitions including an Emmy award, a Media Access Award and an International Film and Video Award.
For his work in making television accessible to our nation’s 13 million blind and visually impaired people, The President’s Committee on Equal Opportunity selected Stovall as the Entrepreneur of the Year. He was also chosen as the 2000 International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa as recipients of this honor.
On the heels of his successes comes Wisdom for Winners: A Millionaire Mindset.
Wisdom for Winners contains a unique combination of guidance for the career professional and the entrepreneur combined with spiritual wisdom that prompts self-reflection.
Organized into short sections within four categories, the material integrates ethics, attitude, faith, and perspective as keys to achievement and success in today’s competitive work environment. The four categories are: Wisdom for the Spirit, Community Focus and Winning Relationships, Focus on Business and Finance, and Success in Action.
Each of the categories contains several of his past columns—now carried by hundreds of newspapers, magazines, and online publications around the world. Each of these columns are one to two pages in length and cover many topics designed to get the reader to reflect on guidance provided for the career professional and entrepreneur combined with spiritual wisdom that promotes self-reflection. A few favorites:
- “The Key to Happiness” challenges the reader to reflect on three things: “something to do,” “someone to love,” and “something to look forward to” in order to understand the idea of happiness.
- “The Gift of Problems” urges the reader to look for benefits or advantages in adversity. Adversity forces us to move forward as a better, stronger person if we seek the empowering lessons nestled therein.
- “Releasing Creativity” teaches us that we are all creative in some way and have creative gifts. The way to unleash that creativity is to chip away at the distractions and barriers that imprison our inner creativity. It takes discipline and effort to release our gifts.
The book is best read in bite-sized pieces to benefit from its contents. Read a column and then take a day or two to reflect on its contents to strategize how to put the nugget of wisdom into practice. Before long, you will find that the process of reflection and commitment to action will lead to that “millionaire mindset” for advancing your career or becoming a successful entrepreneur.
