9780002571548: Winning the Game of Life

Motivational strategies and tips on how to acheive success from sports stars, celebrities and top business people.

Success loves success. That’s why, for the past decade, Frances Edmonds, ex-wife of cricketer Phil Edmonds and author of the bestselling Another Bloody Tour, has been involved in organising celebrity cricket matches to support WellBeing, the charitable wing of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. In 1989 Sir David Frost and Sir Victor Blank first invited Captains of Industry such as Richard Branson and Archie Norman to pay £10,000 for hte privilege of playing with international cricket stars, and the event has been going from strength to strength ever since, raising £1.5 million to date.

Frances Edmonds has interviewed many of the phenomenally successful business and sports people involved to discover what drives their achievements. The result is an easily digestible collection of quotes, nuggets, and tips from some of Britain’s greatest success stories. With sections on enthusiasm, self-belief, leadership, lifelong learning, beliefs, instincts and goals, this is the ultimate How to Succeed book.

Winning the Game of Life will motivate, energise and help us all to get the most out of ourselves.

From the Back Cover:

Life is a game and we're all in it alone. Unlike most other games, however, you're a guaranteed winner in the Game of Life once you commit to giving it your very best shot. This game has only a few, very simple rules and you are the final arbiter.

Are you suffering from the stress and fatigue of feeling you must constantly do better and consistently achieve more? Are you sick of trying harder, digging deeper and going the proverbial extra mile? In other words, are you wasting precious time and energy playing the Game of Life by other people's rules?

Playing by other people's rules takes you out of control. You find yourself judged against standards which you never consciously accepted. You find yourself positioned in league tables to which you never wanted to belong. It's no wonder you're feeling frustrated. Kick that borrowed ball into touch and play your own game! Recover balance. Restore wellbeing. Revive joy. Start 'Winning the Game of Life'.
