“From a guy who appeared to have it all, we learn that he had nothing. Through practical wisdom and direction, we learn how Mike Murphy discovered what it really means to have it all, and, most uniquely, how to give what is most important. Mike teaches through his very personal sharing that the worst thing about making it to the top without a purpose is discovering that there is still nothing there for you when you arrive. But, he goes forward, beyond his emptiness and despair, to show you, whether you are at the top or the bottom of the heap, how to bring your dreams into fruition, with a purpose that you will never lose and others will never forget about you.”
My favorite section from the book is one of the many clever and practical ways Mike brings ancient wisdom to our modern times: “Live like there was no yesterday.” What I find Mike Murphy to be phenomenal at doing is taking a vast amount of information, from many sources, and making it simple, practical, and reachable for the average person. Mike is the real deal. He is not some robed guru, get rich quick author, or intellectual psychologist. Mike is a guy who came from the trenches and now teaches with an uncanny sense of being able to meet you just where you are.
