Book Excerpt- Daniel Bryan fought for his dreams

“…One of my wrestling heroes is Daniel Bryan. To his dismay and disappointment of his fans including myself, he retired prematurely on February 8, 2016. For more than two years, he had been depressed since he couldn’t do what he loved to do: Perform in the ring and entertain millions of fans around the world.

However, Daniel resolved to fight for his dreams till the end. Without giving up, he kept fighting until he was cleared to compete. Due to his resolve for more than two years, Daniel finally outlasted this tough setback that dashed his dream to wrestle in the WWE ring.

Filled with emotions and tears, Daniel publicly announced on March 20, 2018, his being clear to return to in-ring competition. In his emotional speech, he said, “If you fight for your dreams, your dreams fight for you.” Yes! (His signature slogan) His dreams fought for him. And thus, he competed at WrestleMania 34 on April 8, 2018.

Have you resolved not to give up so easily? Have you stayed in the fight long enough? Have you determined to outlast the setbacks you’re facing right now a little longer?…” Taken from the upcoming follow-up book ‘The Highest Level of Greatness’ p. 161

Extraordinary leaders are visionaries. They see the end from the beginning. What is more? They fight for the translation of their dreams into realities. The two combinations are important. Leaders need to have both abilities: The ability to see and the resilience to fight for the vision until it comes to fruition…
