We all want to be great, right? Whether it’s being a great mother, a great boss, a great wife, sister or leader, it doesn’t matter — deep down, we all want to show up as the best version of ourselves and make a massive impact on the world. Of course, it’s not always easy to step into our greatness.

For starters, our Mean Girl is brilliant at holding us back and keeping us small. (Seriously, that’s her area of expertise!) Then, of course, there are all the roadblocks and obstacles that life seems to throw at us whenever we try to step things up and kick big goals. It can all add up to make it seem much easier (not to mention safer) to just stay smack-bang in our comfort zones… but you and I both know we were put on this planet for way more than that.

That’s why I’m so freaking excited to share this interview with you today.

See, I believe that in order to excel at anything in life we must learn from the best. And there’s no one I know more qualified to talk on the topic of becoming great than Lewis Howes — motivational speaker, lifestyle entrepreneur and all round epic human, who just so happens to be an expert on the topic of greatness.

With a super successful podcast The School Of Greatness, plus his New York Times best-selling book of the same title, you are bound to learn a thing or two (or twenty!) from this wise man.

(A quick note before we dive into the interview: you’ll see at the start of the video, I mention that Lewis’s book is available for pre-order, which was the case when we filmed the interview. But the excellent news is, you no longer have to wait! His book is now available right this very second and you can get your hands on it over here.)

Stop caring how you look and focus on how you’re being.

So pull out your pen and paper, close down all the tabs on your computer and open your mind and heart… because ladies and gentlemen, this is one inspiring man.

In this interview with New York Times bestselling author Lewis Howes, you will learn…

  • His amazing and inspiring story from pro-footballer to lifestyle entrepreneur.
  • How his identity crisis changed everything for him — and how you can use your own ‘setbacks’ to trigger incredible personal growth.
  • Why he left his dream career in football.
  • How he went from not being able to read and write, to becoming a New York Times best-selling author (if ‘write a book’ is on your bucket list, you need to hear what he has to say!).
  • What his dream morning looks like (and the one thing you can do first thing to set yourself up for a kick-ass day).
  • How he moves through fear, plus his favorite fear-busting strategies.
  • Why we need to appreciate and be grateful for fear.
  • How to find your purpose and passion in life + a powerful exercise to help you uncover it.
  • Why greatness comes from within and how to cultivate greatness.
  • The 3 biggest things that make you truly great.
  • Why having a big vision is imperative to being of service to the world.
  • Plus loads, loads more.

My favorite quote from Lewis is…

Powerful stuff!

    melissa and Lewis, namaste
    I now feel inspired to be great, I’ve been discontent but afraid to be great. I l.o.v.e the tool of spending an hour in nature and write out a perfect day to identify your passion. And to create a powerful vision. I already have an amazing business but I need and want to take it up higher. I think this I s another tool in my tool belt to take me to greatness. Thanks for the inspiring interview. Thank you both.

    AH-FREAKIN’-MAZING! I took the time on my day off today to watch this and I am so so so grateful that I did. I love the tip about making your bed, I actually started doing this a few days ago because my intuition told me it would help clear my head each morning and it definitely works. Can’t wait to get a hold of Lewis’s book and dive in. Thank you, as always Melissa, for your amazing work. Xx

    Absolutely love this interview! Thanks so much Melissa for making this available to us! I learnt so many fab tips and can’t wait to bring them to fruition. This year I’ve been feeling a little uneasy about my job. I’ve lost motivation and have this feeling like it’s not right for me, that there’s got to be something more. Can’t wait to sit down and come up with my perfect day. 2016 is the year I figure things out or at least get closer to living a life I love! P.s I absolutely love your new book. Halfway through and already had lots of “aha” moments. Thanks again! x

    • Melissa says:

      Brilliant news beautiful. What is the biggest ‘aha’ thus far?

      P.S. Share your perfect day with us in the comments once you have it planned out. I can’t wait to read it.
