CelebrityPress® describes the book as an inspiring guide to find the will to win and to use these CelebrityExperts® around the world who have made successful journeys to their chosen goal(s) and have discovered what works and what doesn’t as your mentors.  


Winners are individuals who surpass the efforts of all others and can claim victory in their competitive endeavors. There are probably more famous quotes on winning and succeeding than on most other topics combined. Many of these quotations have come from a variety of thinkers, coaches, philosophers and scientists including the likes of Confucius, Socrates, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Vince Lombardi, John Wooden and 'Bear' Bryant.

It is interesting to note that while great thinkers and coaches view winning as their goal, they emphasize that preparation for the event is of even greater importance. This has never been more evident than in this day and age, where competition to rise to the top is pursued by so many and winning is revered by all. The result of this intense competition is that winners are analyzed meticulously. Along with the potential rewards of fame, wealth, public recognition and power, aspiring to win can easily become emotional and personal, and our determination to succeed amplified.

 The CelebrityExperts® in this book are here to guide those who wish to succeed. Having made the journey themselves, they know the paths to choose and those to avoid helping you navigate the road and find your will to win!

After such a successful release, Jim Shute will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
