Whatever your focus – whether you’re a leader, a career professional or a business owner, you’ve got to have a base line code or model that you follow and live by. In today’s episode Allan and I discuss an unshakeable value system he’s developed for winning in life.
OUR GUEST THIS WEEK: ALLAN HOUSTON
Allan Houston lives his life with the determination to apply his success as a professional athlete to help others. After winning a gold medal as a member of the U.S. men’s basketball team at the 2000 Summer Olympics, and nine seasons with the NY Knicks, Houston created the Allan Houston Legacy Foundation (AHLF) which has served thousands of participants across the country through programs that promote youth mentoring, responsible fatherhood, and entrepreneurship. In addition, he has served as a spokesperson for the National Fatherhood Initiative, an international ambassador for the NBA, and an analyst for ESPN.
Allan Houston conceptualized FISLL (Faith, Integrity, Sacrifice, Leadership, and Legacy) based on principles learned from his parents and other models of leadership in his life. Through these Fundamentals of Life, he aims to share the keys that helped him grow as a student, an athlete, and most importantly, a son, father, and community leader. These life principles serve as a foundation for a healthy mind, body, and spirit, the essential needs for a Life in 3D, inspiring the book, The Fundamentals of Life: Life in 3D. This book is available in print and eBook wherever books are sold.
