12 mantras that Shaun Tomson (one of the greatest surfers ever) lives by

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Shaun Tomson – one of the greatest surfers of all time - for his weekly business book review.

Tomson is the author of “The Code: The Power of ‘I Will’”.

Description on Amazon:

How to convert the power of “I Will” into a life-changing mantra.

The 12 stories in this book, taken from Tomson’s own life experiences in and out of the surfing world, offer the simple message ― I Will ― as a model to face life’s challenges and help you achieve your goals.

All you need is encouragement to find your voice and commit yourself to positive values.

The stories resonate with positivity and hope for the future, and are infused with the belief that, even in the darkest time, light shines ahead to show you the way forward.

Business – like sport – is a hard taskmaster.
