Twelve years ago, Jon Magnus set out to interview role models around the world to find out what makes them exceptional. From France to Switzerland, from Calgary to the banks of the Mississippi, Magnus interviewed fourteen everyday heroes, including:
Nancy Brinker, Founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Betsy King, Member of Professional Golf Hall of Fame
Abbé Pierre, Founder of Emmaus International
Doctor Leland Hartwell, Nobel Prize-winning cancer researcher
Chad Pregracke – CNN Hero of the Year (2013)
In S.H.I.N.E., Magnus gathers their wisdom into five universal life lessons that readers can use to chart the course of their lives.
(S) – See Your Own True Potential
(H) – Have a Heart For Others
(I) – Identify and Meet Pressing Needs
(N) – Navigate the Course of Change
(E) – Expect Success
Through short, compelling lessons, practical exercises, and the inspiring life stories of these fourteen role models, Magnus encourages readers to make positive changes in their own lives. Taken as a whole, S.H.I.N.E. will teach readers to listen to the lives of others, learn from them, and become the best at being themselves.
