Lewis Howe’s Life as a Child
Lewis always dreams when he was young and cared about the people around him. He was below average in school; it was hard for him to read. His classmates are always making fun of him and hardly had any real friend; he was bullied. At home, it’s a constant tension. His parents got divorced, and his brother got jailed for four years. At five, he was sexually abused by a man. Many times, he wishes that he was dead.
A Football Rising Star
Everything began to change when he started seeking inspiration and information on how to make his life better. He used all his lonely and negative energy into his dream of becoming a professional athlete, and become successful in it someday. It was a success, and he even got to play Arena Football for one season.
However, everything went downhill again after receiving an injury that has ended his career and dream of becoming a football star. He started questioning himself again.
The Beginning of His Great Success
Broke and clueless on how to earn money or get a decent job, he became obsessed with learning about business, product design, marketing, human behavior, and adding value to people. His obsession led him to a great journey.
He became a New York Times bestselling author, with a multi-million online media company. He started speaking around the world and received praises from different places such as, one of the “5 Internet Gurus Who Can Make You Rich,” by Details Magazine.
Below are some of his bestselling books:
- The School of Greatness- A complete guide on how to live fuller and to enjoy life.
- The Millionaire Morning- Have a millionaire’s mindset, and then become one.
- The Mask of Masculinity- Learn how to become a real man while remaining sensitive to others and making stronger relationships.
Currently, Lewis Howes teaches people how to pursue their dream, and how to earn a full-time income while helping others. His goal is to impact 100 million lives, and he is doing it through his podcast, books, videos, online courses, experiential workshops, live events, and one on one interactions.
For him, what he has experienced in the past is a blessing, as it makes him appreciate his life now and gives him compassion for those who are suffering more than him. Life has a lot of challenges making it so hard to live it. But for Lewis Howes, if he can do it, so can you.
