Title: Performing Under Pressure

The Lesson: Fedor Holz is only 24 years old and he has already played in dozens of high stakes poker tournaments and multi-million dollar competitions – so, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about staying cool under pressure. In this podcast, the German card player gives his best advice on how to stay calm during high-risk business situations, how to train yourself for improvement, and – most importantly – how to coach yourself when you lose.

Notable Excerpt: “If you want to be great at something, put every single minute you’ve got into it.”

The Host: After spending years of his young life and athletic career struggling with his own emotional wellbeing, a crippling injury left Lewis Howes without an identity and without any work. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, however, Howes recreated himself as a multi-million dollar media producer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and podcast host. The ex-football player now spends his days chatting with the most inspirational icons of his generation on his School of Greatness podcast..

Podcast: The School of Greatness podcast is available for download on Soundcloud and iTunes. You can also watch footage of the interviews on Howes’s YouTube channel.

Books: Howes is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “The School of Greatness”: an in-depth collection of lessons and wisdom that he has gathered from interviewing hundreds of the world’s greatest role models and thinkers. Howes’s latest book, “The Mask of Masculinity”, is based on his experience with the dangerous stereotypes and expectations that are placed on men in modern society.
