Winning Beyond The Scoreboard, As The UNDERDOG, The Final Score Is What Counts! (July 6, 2010). Lamont Turners first book takes readers on a journey of self-discovery as he teaches them that, underdogs or t, they can create the option to guarantee victory. Turner tackles and provides the ultimate solution for one of the great paradoxes of our time: by whose scoreboards am I winning or losing? He leaves the reader with Sixty Savvy Tips to Overcome the UNDERDOG Mentality. By re-evaluating his own record of success as a Vanderbilt student, a Vanderbilt football captain and a medical devices sales representative, Turner realizes that the scoreboards created by his critics do t have the final say. Instead, he discovers that winning goes beyond any critics scoreboard. He shares how winning on the UNDERDOGs new, recalibrated scoreboard is the final score that counts. UNDERDOGS are the Underestimated Nobodies Delivering Extraordinary Results Despite Opposing odds, author Turner defines, and he provides his readers with sixty chapters to help them reveal the God within themselves. Each chapter has a story each taken from the worlds of football and corporate America -- which offers an intangible lesson learned, a real world application of the lesson, and a question to help lead readers to the discovery of the God within themselves. Afterward, readers will have the option to recalibrate their UNDERDOG status to a winning status, on the scoreboard that matters most: their God-given scoreboard. Many felt that anyone could win after President Barak Obama became the first, broadcasted, black President of the United States of America. Now, many feel destined to lose in these challenging ecomic times. Ackwledging how critics are always creating scoreboards to determine winners and losers, the author challenges readers to look themselves in the mirror to ask, Am I winning or losing? By which scoreboard am I winning or losing? Despite the winning/losing score critics have, the author suggests that readers can recalibrate their critics scoreboards, to win on their ultimate scoreboards.
