Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott Shares Wisdom From His Playbook on Life Lessons
CUPERTINO, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2010 — Inspiration and life lessons from coaches have helped to shape the life of Hall of Fame football champion Ronnie Lott. He is an inspiration both on and off the field, from his multiple Super Bowl rings and ten Pro-Bowl appearances to his tireless commitment to making life better for children at risk. Empowered by what he learned from coaches about life and sports, Ronnie’s new book, #SPORTS tweet, is a compilation of those “aha” moments of life and how to use these experiences to shape one’s destiny.
Designed to be a fast and accessible read, each one of the 140 character bite-sized quotes in this playbook focuses on learning from adversity and success, drawing from Ronnie’s journey through childhood, playing football both in college at USC and in the NFL, and achieving success in business and in life as a husband and father.
“This book will bring out the best in you if you give each simple aha moment a chance to sink in. We believe that these nuggets of truth and inspiration will empower the reader to reach for achieving excellence in their lives, whatever their passion is,” says Ronnie Lott.
“A kid has to dream. Even if dreams don’t come true, we’re all better off for dreaming,” write Mr. Lott and co-author Keith Potter in this motivational book. “If you don’t stare adversity down, it’ll take you down.”
Advance praise for #SPORTS tweet comes from a who’s who in the sports world, including fellow Hall of Famer Marcus Allen, NBA Point Guard Baron Davis, and Super Bowl XXXV MVP Ray Lewis. “This book of sports tweets is very inspirational, great reading, and very credible coming from a proven Hall of Famer like Ronnie Lott,” says Daniel M. Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins. The foreword is written by Sean Payton, the head coach of the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints.
“Ronnie has created the ultimate playbook for lessons learned in life. #SPORTS tweet is a work of excellence and a great addition to our THINKaha Series. These authors define leadership and passion with the wisdom they share in each section,” states Mitchell Levy, Author and CEO of THINKaha. “In today’s fast-paced, Internet-connected world, readers want an alternative to the book that takes 15 days or more to read. THINKaha is that alternative, allowing the reader to reread and grab new concepts from the book, every month in 15 minutes.”
