From America's favorite football player turned New York Times bestselling author and morning talk show host here are 18 rules of motivational advice that will inspire you to turn up the heat and go from good to great in pursuit of your personal ambitions.

Pulling from his own life experiences, Michael Strahan details the mix of mental discipline, positive thinking, and sense of play that lead him to a Super Bowl XLII victory as a member of the New York Giants, and later to star alongside Kelly Ripa in the hit daytime talk show Live! with Kelly and Michael . Each of these "Strahan Rules" will guide you step-by-step through developing a work ethic and mental durability that will prime you to achieve your goals and transform your life.

Delivered with his signature wit and wisdom, Strahan's Rules combine a range of advice, from values he picked up from his father who served in the military to professors who teach on the science of happiness and include:

-Rule #5: Too many of us count ourselves out before we even give ourselves a chance...Do the work. Be excellent. You'll find your place.
-Rule #11: You can't change other people, but you can change how you are around them, and sometimes, a lot of times, that's more than enough.
-Rule #12: Listen to other people, but don't take their opinions for fact. Have your own experiences. Draw your own conclusions.

Whether you are attempting to achieve your career goals, seeking to better your relationships or simply up your optimism quotient, Wake Up Happy will inspire you.

This is my review from goodreads:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The content was relevant as he used many of his life examples, but it was an easy read as well. "Wake up happy" is not a happy, happy, be chipper type of book. The author provides basic strategies for areas such as: not giving up on your dreams or relationships and the value of hard work.

I had a friend ask me "what makes Michael Strahan a noted authority on dreaming and being happy?" My answer was and still is "it's his demeanor and accomplishments." It's quite obvious that none of his successes in life were handed to him. He displays a very strong work ethic and an ability to roll with the punches. This author shares his setbacks and failures as well as his accomplishments. All the more reason to respect him.
