The Greatness Guide: Powerful Secrets for Getting to World Class
by Robin Sharma
In 1997, Sharma self-published his first book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which caught the attention of the then-president of Harper Collins, Ed Carson, while he was at a local Chapters bookstore. Sharma enlightened readers with an inspirational fable about a lawyer who faced and overcame a mid-life, spiritual crisis. With practical and purposeful advice, the book became a #1 international bestseller.
With Harper Collins behind him, Sharma went on to sell 15 million books in over 96 countries and is now one of the most widely read authors.
According to Sharma, one of the biggest sources of personal suffering is when we take actions that distance us from reaching our potential. A believer that, through hard work, potential can be endless and bountiful, Sharma has gone on to give motivational speeches on self-help, leadership and performance to numerous Fortune 500 Companies including Nike, IBM, Starbucks and Microsoft. He also started Sharma Leadership International, a global training organization giving guidance on leadership and success.
