Old-School Grit: Lessons from History on Willpower, Tenacity, and Resilience (Live a Disciplined Life Book 13) By: Pete Hollins

Hear it Here - adbl.co/3NBG3vW

How to accomplish your goals, no matter the obstacle. King Leonidas could repel 100,000 Persians – you can exercise more and eat more healthy.

There are many ways to live, but the tried-and-true way is to embrace grit and grind through hardship. History shows that it’s what every single “great man/woman” and winner has done to reach their goals.

If there is a will, there is a way. Get inspired to be a self-discipline machine.

OLD-SCHOOL GRIT is a book that shows the path. To be precise, the path that some of history’s greatest figures have taken. You’ll learn from them, hear about their struggles, and see the massive amounts of self-discipline, willpower, and general tenacity they used to become worthy of history books.

The best part is that it is incredibly actionable. Each historical figure has lessons that can be extracted and applied to your daily life. Stop waiting for the rest of your life to begin.

Thousands of years of knowledge compiled into one book.

Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a bestselling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.
