Book: When Nobody was Watching: My Hard-Fought Journey to the Top of the Soccer World by Carli Lloyd
Since scoring 3 goals in the USA's route of Japan in the 2015 Women's World Cup Final, Carli Lloyd has been in the discussion as one of the greatest soccer players of all time.
I can say that this book is without a doubt my new favorite autobiography. Some elite athletes (Michael Phelps) have stories of immense success and hardly any failure for an ordinary reader to relate to. Carli Lloyd's story is not one of those. As a teenager, she failed to make the club team she wanted to play for. She continued to face setbacks both on and off the field as a college player and even a decade into her professional career. Lloyd's story is very human, and very relatable for any reader, sports fan or otherwise. As Lloyd says, her journey was not easy, but it is proof that with belief and determination, any of us can make the transformation from ordinary to extraordinary.
Lifehack: Indentify a "Happiness Leech" in your life
I got this idea from New York Times Best-selling author/podcast host Gretchen Rubin (highly recommend her books and podcast!). All of us have at least one thing in our life that we consistently do despite that fact that it makes us unhappy. Some common examples are spending too much time with electronics, eating unhealthy foods, or comparing ourselves to others. Try to identify a "Happiness Leech" in your life this week and get rid of it for good! :D
