Don't Just Be Good ─ You Can Be Great!

Optimum Drive is the complete step-by-step guide to maximizing human performance in any endeavor you choose to conquer

Attaining peak performance. Optimum Drive is a motivational book that uses top level race car driving as a metaphor for peak performance. As a professional racing driver and a driving coach for over 20 years, author Paul F. Gerrard gives you his unique perspective on what causes people to stagnate with the idea of being merely good, when each of us has the potential to be great. Gerrard believes that peak performance is within our grasp. He lays out his step-by-step process for attaining peak performance with detailed nuance threaded throughout. If you have ever been curious about maximizing your own ultimate potential, Optimum Drive is for you!

Mental toughness. Greatness is as hard to quantify as it is to achieve…probably not a coincidence. In this book, Optimum Drive, professional driver Gerrard helps you understand the mental toughness that it takes to reach that greatness. He starts off by taking you onto the track as he explores what driving at 200 mph can teach us about who we are. Using his experiences from behind the wheel at death-defying speeds, Gerrard breaks down the psychology of driving, what it takes, and how we can use it to achieve greatness in life.

Flow psychology and staying in the zone. The key to the mental toughness that Gerrard believes it takes to achieve peak performance is the nirvana-like sensation of flow psychology or being in the zone. Flow psychology, or being in the zone, is a mental state in which one who is performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and joy. It is through flow psychology that Gerrard introduces a blend of holistic mindset combined with a competitive edge, which is essential to successful professional driving. This mix of guts, tenacity and endurance is the foundation of Gerrard’s philosophy for attaining greatness.

Why you should read Optimum Drive

  • This book is not just about learning how to drive race cars. Use it for anything.
  • Auto Racing (by far the richest sport in the world) has invested more money evaluating human performance than any other sport.
  • Optimum Drive is a step-by-step guide to unlock your hidden potential.
  • Former Top Gear US Stig, Paul F. Gerrard has taught and refined his principles for over 20 years with thousands of successful students.

Find Your Soul's Purpose

By

Discovering Your Divine Purpose

Who am I? It’s a question we have all asked at some point in our lives. Our identities can often seem elusive. Though we know ourselves best, it’s difficult at times to separate who we are from who we want to be—or we feel we are—as opposed to how others see us. We present so many different versions of ourselves to the world that sometimes our true identity gets lost in the process. Writer and spiritual guide Janet Conner is here to help guide us back to ourselves.

Why am I here? Human beings are creatures of curiosity, and the meaning of our existence is not exempt from our wonderings. More often, it is what lies at the core of our questioning. Maybe you’ve been on a steady path for a while, and you’re only now beginning to question if you’ve been heading in the right direction. Maybe you’ve wandered all your life with no direction at all. Either way, you desire an answer to this question—and Conner leads you on a journey to find it.

What is my purpose? Purpose drives and directs us. Without it, even if we are on the right path, we have no motivation to walk down it. Conner tackles this question head-on by discussing the divine purpose affixed to each of our souls. By connecting with our soul, our inner guide, we open ourselves up to embrace the spiritual gifts that each of us possesses. Conner expresses the importance our soul’s stories and shares how we can find a new life, one infused with meaning and purpose.

Read Find Your Soul’s Purpose and discover...

  • An inspirational and spiritual book with a soul-community creator as your guide
  • Renewal of meaning in your day-to-day life
  • A journey to finding you and your divine purpose

GUTS

Find Your Purpose Driven Life of Joy, Passion and Success

When Angela Duckworth wrote her best-selling book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance she could have been describing Sam Bracken who is the embodiment of living a life of grit and grace.

Learn self-empowerment. In GUTS, Bracken explains why we need to dig deep and do soul searching to see what lights our fire within. Bracken's backstory would make Dr. Phil turn tail and run. His childhood and upbringing are unimaginably tough with years of abuse, even to the point where a relative set him on fire. What didn't kill Sam Bracken made him stronger. Now he is on a mission to bring self-empowerment to others.

Grit and grace. When we say something takes guts, we usually mean it takes courage to do it. It takes guts to go skydiving or to run a marathon or to try out for the school play. We call it luck or stamina or intestinal fortitude in conquering the hard, albeit exciting, things in life. Look back at the great personalities who made a difference in history. What did they all have in common? Determination and tenacity. In short, GUTS! They might have had talent too, but without guts they would have gone nowhere. Science now tells us that lots of talented individuals produce great stuff, but very few produce a lot of great stuff─and even fewer produce a lot of great stuff over a long career. What do these few highly productive people have in common? Grit and grace and a large helping of self-belief.

Purpose driven life. GUTS is about actually getting there. You'll have to push past failure again and again. And it is also about beating the odds no matter how high they are stacked against you. To be a true leader, you have to start with yourself. Are you ready to do some soul searching and learn the secrets to guts, self-empowerment, and a purpose driven life?

If you have read Girl on Fire, Attitudes of Gratitude, or Sam Bracken’s other book My Orange Duffel Bag, you will want to read GUTS.
