Tim Schurrer, right-hand man to Donald Miller and vp of talent management and culture at StoryBrand, introduces readers to the Secret Society, a community of people who have learned a new way of defining success–where we stop chasing money, fame, and power and discover meaning and fulfillment in the work we do.
There’s a message getting a lot of airtime these days. It says to be successful, you have to step into the spotlight, climb the ladder, become the boss, or whatever version of success that’s been dangled in front of you in your career. The problem is, this creates a Spotlight Mindset–or an unhealthy desire for attention and recognition. You work so hard to impress others or chase the next raise or promotion that you end up exhausted, frustrated, and unhappy. But what if there was a different way of defining success?
In The Secret Society of Success, Tim Schurrer invites us to reevaluate our professional moves and learn a new, freer way to navigate our lives. How do we learn this approach? With the Secret Society as our guides–a community of people who know what it feels like to make a difference, whether they have the spotlight or not. The Secret Society will teach you to:
*define success for yourself;
*work hard and contribute to your team without minding who gets the credit;
*make an impact regardless of the size of your stage or platform;
*stop chasing money, fame, and power and discover meaning and fulfillment in the work that you do;
*navigate living in the tension between contentment and striving; and
*go from feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and restless in your job to being confident in the role you play and the value you bring to the team.
You can learn a new way to define success that’s counter to what culture is selling. Through stories of people like Alan Mulally, the former CEO of Ford, NBA all-star LeBron James, Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and people whose names you’ve never heard of, you will discover that the success you’re looking for is within your reach, wherever you are and whatever your role.
