For all men who are seeking a new vision of masculinity -- one that allows them to break free of society's stereotypes, reclaim ancient feelings, explore new roles, and learn to integrate body, mind, emotion, and football -- The Lovie Smith Story is an invigorating and inspiring companion. Written by the preeminent Chicago Bears coach of the past nine years, this daily guide to self-discovery offers 364-and-a-half powerful meditations on emotional temperance, each with an opening quotation from the guru himself and an accompanying thought for the day.
Are you a Lovie Smith Type? A quiet warrior in the tradition of van Gogh, Carl Jung, Steve Jobs, and Franz Kafka? This extraordinary book has the trade-deadline-like authority to permanently change how we see Lovie Smith Types, and equally important, change how Lovie Smith Types see themselves.
- Embrace the power inside of you! Gain power through reflection, solitude, and sidestepping journalists with folksy sayings about life in Texas. In this transformative book, L.L. Smith provides advice based on his time spent as a philanthropic football coach.
- Get a grip on yourself! Step 1: hold tight. Step 2: never let go. Indeed, this is The Lovie Smith Story: the tale of one man's dramatic, twenty-first century charge against the common sense and professionalism that dominated his workplace. Learn to break free from being a people pleaser and focus only on yourself… don't worry if your compatriots are too old or unskilled or meat-headed for their job. That doesn't matter. What matters is your personal happiness (and that your paycheck is bigger than theirs).
- Not everyone will like you, but that's okay! They're just stupid-heads, anyways. The Lovie Smith Story will help you understand the power of quiet power. Rediscover sex, the power of brotherhood, reconnecting with the earth, acknowledging the inner spirit, accepting and sharing feelings, the importance of play, healing "the father wound," honoring the inner child, and much more.
