Vince Kelvin – Beyond Your Best
“Beyond Your Best takes us on an incredible journey beyond our own minds and imaginations, and leaves us astounded by grace. I recommend this book for anyone who is sincerely attracted to the challenge of letting God take them to places they’ve never been before.”
— Janet Hagberg, director, Silent Witness National Initiative; author, RealPower The Critical Journey
“There is so much more to peak performance than just talent and hard work. Beyond Your Best is a gift because it helps you explore that part of success that most people don’t talk or even think about. Exploring your own character and being open to the positive influence of those around you can help you to exceed your own expectations.”
— Misty Hyman, Olympic gold medalist
“Beyond Your Best is a beautifully honest, deeply caring, and positively uplifting book. Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, and Ken McElrath show us with their compelling stories and inspiring message how magic happens when leaders of character nurture an environment filled with grace. This book embraces you, and once you’ve read it you won’t ever forget it. In a world filled with so much cynicism and fear, this is one book that definitely will fill your heart and soul with hope and joy.”
— Jim Kouzes, coauthor, The Leadership Challenge, and chairman emeritus, Tom Peters Company
“Beyond Your Best is the self-help book for the twenty-first century because it reiterates a truth that is timeless: ‘No man is an island.’ Through well-chosen parables and real-life examples, Thrall, McNicol, and McElrath offer valuable lessons in interdependence, and show us how to engender ‘trust, creativity, hope’— in ourselves and others.”
— Jon Kyl, U.S. senator from Arizona
“Beyond Your Best is a fascinating journey about personal relationships and the importance of character, integrity, and faith, which prepares one to step up the ladder in leadership.”
— Jerry Colangelo, chief executive officer and chairman, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
