When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister's couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches' advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host.

In the New York Times bestseller The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing "the greats" on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented, but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives.

A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness "professors" and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.


  • Dr Shafali interview is the best one so far!

    By AwakenedFamilies
    Lewis was able to pull the best interview to date from Dr Shafali because Lewis is doing his own work in consciousness and is willing to be so vulnerable about his childhood and adult experiences. You rock Lewis, thank you for your generosity, I am benefiting greatly from you and in turn so are my young children.
  • EXCELLENT Podcast

    By ItsJameson
    Lewis, Your work is beyond great. Everything you do adds value to the world of non-believers, under achievers wanting to develop an over achieving mindset, and much more in each of your podcasts. Thank you for all you do, and look forward to meeting you one day in the future!
  • The Happiness Equation

    By Juand2803
    Thank you for this incredible podcast. Today I coincidentally experienced a blow in my professional life. I was faced with the pain of deceit and felt cheated in a business transaction that I envisioned going differently. Listening to this interview helped me reach a new perspective and lift some weight of my shoulders. Thank you Lewis.

  • One podcast away from a better mood.

    By Blaire Ward
    You are one School of Greatness podcast away from a better mood. I would argue that you can learn just as much from listening to Lewis's podcast as you could from any college course. He brings the most incredible, inspirational guests from all walks of life onto the show and dissects their stories so that you can learn from the best. I've learned so many valuable lessons, have grown as a person and got through some difficult times with this podcast! I highly recommend listening:) you will not be disappointed!
  • Someone I'd Love To Meet

    By ifrados
    I've been listening to Lewis's podcast for several months now. As an entrepreneur, the content always speaks to me on a deep level. Lewis has done an amazing job addressing and tackling the challenges and obstacles of those striving for greatness occur along the way. My favorite was his episode with Tony Robbins as they address how to handle negativity or "things going wrong" in your life or business. Thank you Lewis... you are a staple!
  • Great interviews! Inspired and pumped up with each episode

    Hi Lewis, This podcast has meant a lot to me and my career. I came to this country in 2008. I became a victim of the economic downturn and did not find a job for first 7 years. I was depressed, but my husband encouraged me to pursue Masters degree which he believed would help me with my job hunt. I had lost all my self-worth and confidence in the 7 years that I was home doing nothing. I decided to do my Masters online as I did not have the courage for f2f conversations in a class room. I eventually got my first internship in a company. But I still was not sure how I could convert this internship into a job. I was afraid and out of my comfort zone. I remember my first day driving to my internship is when I downloaded the School of Greatness (Ep. #175- “You are Powerful”). Each week, since that day, I listen to your podcast and apply my takeaways to my professional life. I was hired as a full time employee in two months (which by the way was an anomaly as my company had never hired an intern ever!). I was then promoted to a senior position within 4 months, and now I lead the Business Development in my organization. I meet so many companies each day, and I build and sustain relationships with these companies. This is ironic as I did not even have the courage to attend on campus classes during my Masters. I hope to listen, learn and grow more with the GREAT teachers that you bring in each week. Thank you for all your help! Regards, Sandhya

    The School of Greatness was a huge accomplishment for me. It was the second book I have ever finished in my life. I dedicated myself to reading 30 mins a day, and I'm glad this happened to be one of the books I stumbled upon. I am a young entrepreneur and have a fire burning passion to reach and exceed my goals and the things I want out of life, this book gave guidance and knowledge that i know I'll never forget. It gave me ideas to think about and practice everyday. Really looking forward to attending Lewis's School of Greatness Academy, but for now I'll be on the waitlist lol! Great read!
  • Thanks You,

    I have not read the book yet but I love what Lewis does on his podcast. I chose to support him after all the free content he has provided and will provide in the future. I have to say that I am using a lot of his findings in my own life and am creating multiple ways to help people online. Thank you Lewis, I will update my review after I finish the book and I wish you all the success in the. World...congrats on your first book!
