Knowing Yourself Better by Listening to Others: The “School of Greatness” Podcast
Sometimes it’s helpful to step outside of ourselves and listen to others – to feel what resonates within us. It allows us to know ourselves better, understand what matters most and what direction we want our lives to take.
One great possibility to learn from extremely inspiring people is diving into the episodes of the “School of Greatness” podcast hosted by Lewis Howes. He has an archive full of episodes introducing you to a vast array of people from all walks of life. You’ll hear from Tony Robbins, Elizabeth Gilbert, John Assaraf, Gabby Bernstein, James Altucher, Mel Robbins, Dave Asprey, JP Sears, and Arianna Huffington, just to name a few. You’ll gain insight into their lives, work, passions and challenges – and you’ll also enjoy Lewis’ skillful way of navigating conversations.

“The School of Greatness” Is Also a Book!
In his New York Times bestselling book, Lewis shares the knowledge and insights he’s gained interviewing the world’s greatest minds over the years. Through these conversations with world-class athletes, brilliant business minds, spiritual and political leaders, he offers unique insights about the different attributes and facets of greatness, vision and success.
Lewis breaks down his lessons into eight specific areas of focus: Creating a Vision, Turning Adversity into Advantage, Cultivating a Champion’s Mindset, Developing Hustle, Mastering Your Body, Practicing Positive Habits, Building a Winning Team and Living a Life Of Service.
“The School of Greatness” takes you by the hand and supports you in realizing your own greatness potential. Each chapter offers insight, heart and humor along with simple (but not always easy) exercises for incorporating these practices into your day-to-day life. As Lewis himself puts it: “The School of Greatness, in all its parts, is a framework for achieving real, sustainable, repeatable success. This book isn’t just about making you feel warm and fuzzy. It’s about giving you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources to take your vision and turn it into a reality.”
