Scott Hamilton, one of the greatest male figure skaters of our generation, has written a book that documents his pursuits of life, struggle, triumph, and dreams. In The Great Eight, you find yourself finding out the magic formula for how Scott maintains his happy persona.
He offers eight great pieces of advice to help anyone pursue a life of happiness. Happiness is a state of mind – one that has brought him full circle in his pursuits of excellence. He battled on the ice, off the ice, and learned how to adapt and grow with the help of key mentors in his life.
Scott states “Happiness is a fundamental, spiritual commitment to dedicating yourself to the things in life that bring you the most joy. That is why a lot of relationships fail: people forget they are committed” (p.18). He details his commitment to his marriage, his life-long passion of skating (which almost did not happen), the sacrifice that his parents and mentors made on his behalf, the triumph over his cancer, and most importantly his passion for his Lord. Scott’s happiness is rooted in every experience he has gone through and this book is a living, breathing testament to his success and commitment, it is a must read.
