In this searing, provocative and deeply personal memoir, the bestselling author of Do No Harm finds new purpose in his own life as he approaches the end of his professional career, and a fresh understanding of what matters to us all in the end.

Breakthrough Factor

Author: Henry Marsh Format: eBook Release Date: 01/11/1997

For 13 years and on four U.S. Olympic track teams, Henry Marsh competed in international track and field, setting a still-unbroken American record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. He finished fourth, however, in his run for glory in the 1976 Olympics. What he learned in his repeatedly thwarted bids for Olympic gold is that the highest degree of reward and satisfaction is to be found in the unswerving pursuit of personal excellence rather than in merely winning a competition.During his days as an athlete, Marsh developed a plan for aerobic training and stress reduction, later teaching this regimen in seminars, but soon perceived a need for a more comprehensive plan, one that revolved around a larger commitment to complete physical and emotional well-being. Marsh sets forth that comprehensive plan in The Breakthrough Factor.Using the Franklin Covey Reality Model -- a self-analysis tool based on Franklin Covey's many years of research of human behavior -- Marsh explains, with great energy and acuity, the power of principles in transforming our lives moment to moment. He tells you how to ensure incredible results in all spheres of life -- in relationships, financial circumstances, career decisions, physical health -- by making choices and arranging priorities around a fruitful set of values and beliefs.
