Many of us want to be who we were designed to be and to live a life of excellence and character. We realise we have huge potential as human beings but how do we release and develop it? Philip Baker believes that great lives don't happen by chance - they come about through desire, decision, determination and belief. In this book, he outlines key areas for growth, including character, responsibility, passion, optimism, endurance, learning, discipline, humility and courage. Written in an accessible style, Baker's practical wisdom will inspire all those who want to push themselves to excel and anyone who wishes to increase their sense of achievement in life.
