Resource Type: Aspirational
Who this Book is Good For: Emerging, Experienced, Executives, Entrepreneurs
In this inspirational book, Mike Lewis shares his personal journey from a prestigious corporate job to a professional squash player along with more than forty other personal stories of others who decided to follow their inner voice and make the jump. The stories are real examples of the trials and triumphs each faced. Jumping is not easy; it takes courage and perseverance.
Lewis outlines the four “Jump Curve” steps he personally used through his own process, steps that are also illustrated through the experiences of a wide variety of people who have jumped and not looked back:
- Listen to the Little Voice
- Make a Plan
- Let Yourself Be Lucky
- Don’t Look Back
I think this is a must-read for anyone who is in a rut and desires to make their purpose their reality. I was captivated by the individual stories and felt the practical examples and steps helped outline a way to envision a purpose-led future.
