Introduction Finish Strong! Those are two words that can create a powerful attitude for achievement in life, sport and business.

Since the release of my book, Finish Strong, in 2008, I’ve heard from thousands of people across the globe who’ve expressed their excitement about adopting the “Finish Strong” attitude...one which has helped them overcome adversity and capitalize on opportunity. A “Finish Strong” attitude is applicable for everyone—teachers, students, athletes, business professionals, parents, doctors, patients, sales teams, professional sport teams (thank you New Orleans), churches and many more.
