Whether everything's going your way or you're struggling to get through the day, the key, says J. C. Watts, is knowing how to dig deep.
As a star quarterback, congressman, pastor, and now business leader, Watts has lived in the arena most of his life. In this inspiring but practical guide, he shares the secrets to digging deep-going beyond the excuses and the "blame game" and finding your inner reservoirs of inspiration, character, strength, and motivation. With God's grace, you can ignore the roar of the crowd and stay true to Christ, to your neighbor, and to yourself.
Growing up in a small Oklahoma town still haunted by the legacy of segregation, Watts learned about hard work, integrity, and grit from his parents, who gave him the most precious gift of all, his faith in God. But when he found himself the sixth-string quarterback at the University of Oklahoma, he wanted to quit. Fortunately, his coaches wouldn't let him, teaching him more about digging deep. Those lessons helped him again in politics, which he soon discovered is a blood sport that can make football look like a cakewalk.
Watts knows that the experiences he writes about are his own, but everyone needs to learn to dig deep. Among the invaluable insights he shares:
- Why you should thank God for adversity
- The power of forgiveness and letting go
- Your past shapes you, but you're not its prisoner
- What you unlearn can be as important as what you learn
- Never forget that you stand on the shoulders of giants
There's a better life waiting for you. Its price is digging deep. Let's get started.
