Publication Date: April 3, 2018
Drawing on his own powerful story of an impoverished immigrant frequently told that he would amount to nothing, Strive describes Amyx's meteoric rise from obscurity to prominence, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not intellect, opportunities or even network but pursuing personal change that's uncomfortable. In this book, Scott Amyx takes readers into his defining life moments and stories from some of the most unlikely individuals who persevered through change to become outrageously successful. He also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in high performance. Finally, he shares what he's learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers---from corporate CEOs, unicorn startup entrepreneurs to global policy leaders. Strive shows how you can shape your life and your career, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of delightful surprise.
