We’re talking about Books That Make You Transcend Your Expected Purpose

Ever feel like your fate, or destiny, is carved out? That you have no choice to do something different and that your entire identity, purpose, and future depend on your performance? Think of the pressure one must face as a pro football player. Then imagine what happens when, through sheer misfortune, that career suddenly ends.

This is the story of ex-NFL kicker Sean Conley (Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets) who suffered career-ending injuries from overtraining. As part of his rehab, he began practicing yoga, and quickly embraced its philosophy of meditation and mindfulness.

Now, he co-owns and teaches at Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his wife. His book is “The Point After: How One Resilient Kicker Learned There Was More to Life than the NFL.”
