About the author:
David Young was an advisor to Texas Governor Rick Perry for ten years. He developed the governor’s low-cost degree initiative, which challenged universities to offer degrees that cost $10,000. Today, thirteen universities in Texas offer one or more bachelor’s degrees for approximately $10,000. This initiative spread to other states, including Florida, where twenty-three institutions offer $10,000 degrees, and to California, which is developing similar low-cost programs at fifteen institutions.
David enjoys playing the violin and traveling. He’s traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, and he’s visited South America, Asia, and the Middle East. He; his wife, Christina; and their two dogs live in Round Rock, Texas.
Breakthrough Power for Athletes
A Daily Guide to an Extraordinary Life
Pitching legend Orel Hershiser said, "I'm proof that great things can happen to ordinary people if they work hard and never give up." How did he and others like him achieve greatness? Breakthrough Power for Athletes shares their secrets. For each day of the year, Breakthrough Power for Athletes provides four great quotes, usually from athletes known for their outstanding accomplishments. The first quote is humorous, which will put you in a good mood ready to face life's challenges. The other quotes will help you: 1) build an unshakeable foundation, 2) maintain a competitive edge, 3) pursue and fulfill your dreams, 4) impact others, 5) improve your relationships, and 6) find time for renewal. You can read all four quotes in one minute, so you can squeeze them in before you start your breakthrough day. Former San Diego Chargers placekicker Rolf Benirschke, who had 766 career points, reminds us that "the people we admire are ordinary people that have been able to accomplish some extraordinary things. The things that make them extraordinary are things we all possess." So, yes, you too can be great.
