This is the Day
he New York Times best-selling sports star and media icon motivates readers to stop postponing dreams and start making them happen now because--this is the day.
Beyond Tim Tebow's exploits as a Heisman-winning football player, he is widely known and respected for his exemplary character and personal excellence, which have made him a role model for millions. When Tim interacts with the public, he often encounters people who feel "stuck"--unable to take action on matters ranging from daily life to pursuing lifelong dreams. In response, Tim often identifies a crippling fear or lack of courage, to which he advises: "now is the time to take some risks, to quiet the voices of defeat, to step forward and make a mark, because this is the day." In this inspiring, motivational book, readers will receive the advice and encouragement to daily move from "pause" to "play" in finding deeper meaning and success. Tim illustrates the book's themes with stories from his personal life that will delight all readers, including his an update on his dream pursuit of a baseball career.
My thoughts: I have a bit of a confession to make. I'm not a sports fan, so I have never seen Tim Tebow play football or baseball. I feel like I need to through that out there, since, that said, I found out that you do not have to be a sports fan to enjoy this book! Tim shares a lot of stories about his switch from pro football to minor league baseball, but they are interesting stories that even a sports fan gets. There are also plenty of stories of personal experiences and how they fit into a bigger picture. I thought this book was wonderfully written and engaging.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
